Sorry for the delay in posting, I have been recovering from being rear-ended (in a truck accident) during our February 16th big Ottawa snowstorm which dropped nearly 50cms. I plan to come back with a “writing bang” in a few weeks, hopefully.
So with lots of bed-rest, comes lots of reading at weird angles lol since my neck and back are a little funky right now. This week I got wind of something I wanted to share. I certainly hope it’s not too late.
Recently properties in the Glebe neighbourhood (one of Ottawa’s most luxurious areas) were gutted and some of the historic (antique & vintage) belongings were taken to be resold at the Habitat for Humanity Restores.
This includes stained glass windows, kitchen items, doors and more. If you want to add some antique charm to your home without spending an-arm-and-a-leg I would suggest running over the one of the restores a.s.a.p. You will find more details here.
Regardless of whether you live in the Ottawa are or not, I always suggest visiting your local restore or equivalent.
It always feels great to get a good deal, find something ultra original and help others in the process.
If you’re not buying recycled products, you’re not really recycling.
