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…
cats, deer, and birds…
Mexican or maybe Guatemalan (??)…
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! 🙂
P.S. The boy tried on my Chinese garden hat this week.
