In celebration of Valentine’s Day, I figured I would post about love. All types of love – the love of my life, obviously, but also the love of road trips, adventures, thrift stores, and good music.
This past weekend, John and I decided to adventure to Cambridge, Massachusetts.
We found the most excellent of thrift stores there – This little gem right here.
$1.50 a pound and let me just tell you – you could easily spend a whole afternoon going through the never-ending pile of clothing, shoes, books, and everything in between.
I grabbed a vintage red carry-on bag, a J. Crew shirt, and a vintage blazer.
Grand total was less than $9. I’ll take it ;]
After driving around for a bit we passed by Five Guys and definitely had to make a quick stop.
We used to eat at the Five Guys in Greenville and I had honestly forgotten how amazing the food is.
We ended the trip at a Salvation Army in Dedham, Mass.
Talk about hitting the jackpot!
Furniture, furniture, furniture AND at outstanding prices.
I wish I had taken more photos but alas – I was a little distracted looking for treasures.
I found several larger pieces of furniture (including a pink chair that I fell madly in love with) but with a Civic, our transportation options were limited :[
Don't worry - I have added this to the list of reasons why I need an SUV (I think this one might even come before "Icy roads in the winter" ;]
We ended up leaving with an amazing vintage cradle that I can’t wait to use in a photoshoot, a vase, a vintage green drinking glass, another blazer, and some little trinkets (like earrings). I left with a smile for sure :]
And to close – a little something I just heard off of HelloGoodbye’s new album that I find appropriate for today ~
“Like oh, what if I never knew your name?
Oh my god, the thought’s insane
What if your love is not the same
As it seems inside my brain?
What if you’re not really in my sheets?
Oh, just the thought gives me the creeps”
Happy Valentine’s Day! Stay tuned for more heart day love ;]
