So I figured I'd use my lovely day off for some novelty thrifting in Southern Manitoba! Gwyn spent the day with G and G, Mike got the house to himself to work on music, and I headed towards the border to see how many MCC shops I could hit in one afternoon. Today the answer was 3, and it was a blast!
This is what most of my drive looked like, wonderful HOT flat prairies. Today is the first day of a "heat wave" that is coming through, +32 Celsius, plus humidity!
The first shop in Niverville closed at 1pm, luckily I got there at 12:30 and had a half hour to go through all the amazing craft supplies.
Seriously, this is the fabric section alone! I found a heap of wonderful fur and striped fabric.
My serious road face. Everyone thinks I'm mad when I drive but I'm just concentrating! (probably not a smart idea to take photos and drive ...)
Next stop, Morris. This is the town I always knew for the last gas station before crossing the border, now I know it holds treasures! I found a great bunch of vintage kiddo stuff for the shop and for Gwyn
On the way I saw a huge wind farm. I have a special weakness for wind farms. I can't explain it but it's just one of those quirky things I like. Do you love wind farms too?
Last stop ... Winkler, the town where my mum grew up. I didn't find too much here, a dress for Gwyn and one for me (for 50 cents, but it is too small!) and a wire shelf for some creatures.
There were a couple more shops on my initially planned route but due to timing I had to head back. I will show you some of my haul in another Found it! post later this week.
It was the most wonderful day off and tonight we are heading to a birthday party for our buddy Nathan and then heading home to try and keep cool in all this sweaty heat. I hope your Saturday is amazing!
