A Day of Thrifting with Spicy Salty Sweet

My new friend.

Leah of SpicySaltySweet and I took a much needed mental health day and spent the greater part of today thrifting in Pasadena.  I showed her some of my favorite spots for finding vintage steals and we both came away with some goodies.  Leah nabbed a great vintage cookbook, hankie and a glass and silver tea server and I came away with a cookbook of my own, a fabulous oil portrait and a few other odds and ends for the shop.

We enjoyed lunch at Saladang on Fair Oaks and managed to get a lot of wedding talk in too.

Overall, a great day.
