Variety is the Spice of Life

IMG_6381It was such a beautiful day on Sunday that I couldn’t pass up taking a long random drive to an old passers’ by town along the highway.

I picked up my sister and less than 30 minutes later we arrived in Alfred, Ontario. We grabbed some lunch at IMG_6380the main resto bar which was booming, took a little stroll then winded up at a really jammed packed flea market.

There were lots of different vendors and everything from antiques to mr. or ms. fix-it items. It definitely isn’t a smaller space to wonder since the market is within an old Rona store. There are also items outside so you can’t miss it from the road.

I really enjoyed the variety and ended up leaving with a definite find of the month.

I will share this special gem in another post and provide some history.

If you are in the East end of Ottawa why not take a trip out to IMG_6375some of the smaller nearby towns? You never know what you will stumble across. Maybe a tiger in a bathtub, retro dresser or antique waterfall dressing table vanity…

I look forward to my next day trip and sharing it with you.

Have an amazing rest of week and I will be IMG_6374back on the weekend with an antique that moves with the wind.

In honour of Remembrance Day I thought I would share this quote:

We often take for granted the very things that most deserve our gratitude. 

-Cynthia Ozick

Always appreciate the history behind the pieces and remember the reason we are here today.
