New and Used

Been hitting the back roads of Alberta with Queenie for cool old things to add to the Gochenour collection.
Picked up a mid century pole lamp at a thrift store in Lacombe I think it was for $10.  It was hard  to see the potential the way they had it in the store but it really came to life and I'm loving it.  These things are a lot cooler than people think.  You can have 1, 2 or all three lights on, and divide the space in a room.  Pretty nice.
And we saw this Amana Radarange on Craigslist.  Got a killer deal and it will look great in our retro kitchen.  I love everything about this.  Now gotta hunt down a retro cart for it.

It's so much fun exploring thrifts and antiques with you, especially in little villages or towns! And the people we meet along the way are certainly unforgettable!

Yes it's exciting finding things together. There's a lot of great stuff in Canada. Just gotta be at the right place at the right time as we have found.
