New South San Diego Thrift Store

I went to a new thrift store two days ago.  It’s on National City Boulevard, just a few blocks north of the Mile of Cars, and right across the street from the #2 location of Aunt Emma’s Pancakes.

I was driving 60 miles per hour on I-5 when I spotted the word “thrift” in big white letters on the front of a blue building.  Makes me laugh to confess that.  I sense thrift stores – not a particularly useful gift to anyone else, but I am thankful for it.  My dad would have been pleased too.

I walked in and spotted this right away:

It’s totally me…

vintage needlework…

cats, deer, and birds…

bright colors…

Mexican or maybe Guatemalan (??)…

folk-artsy textile.

It has a few little spots around the edges, but I love it anyway.  It is remarkable that the threads are not noticeably broken or pulled.

It wasn’t marked anywhere, so I braced myself for a lofty price, but the cashier let me have it for $2.00!

She made my day.  I will definitely go back to that store!

Maybe next time, I will get a couple of pancakes across the street first.  I love Aunt Emma’s.

Honestly though, I do prefer Aunt Emma’s E Street location in Chula Vista.  For the National City Boulevard spot, I think the owners took over another old restaurant and got the furnishings along with it.

Some of the tables are a little rickety-stickety there.  The place just needs a little upgrade, but maybe that has happened since I was last inside.

The pancakes are heavenly at either location!  🙂

Happy Friday!

P.S.  The boy tried on my Chinese garden hat this week.
