I’ve got to meet the artist

Took a trip  last weekend out to see my mom, which of course included a tour of the local small town thrift shops. No big surprises or great deals uncovered on this trip

Though amongst piles of Beanie Babies,  commemorative hockey chotchkies and some dusty Blue Mountain Pottery we did find these masterpieces!

Do yourself a favour, skip the all inclusive and plan for a good 4 days (at least) in this unexpected city exploring.

Each room upstairs was filled with a different theme….ladies loved the dolls so much they filled 2 rooms!
