Women in Need: living in a thrifter’s paradise

Everyone's a winner at WINS.

I took a trip today to the Dover, Calgary Women in Need thrift store. The WINS, as it affectionately known, is a fantastic place to buy furniture, household items, toys and random oddities.

The thrift store collects money that goes to the charity. And women in crisis have access to free goods.

WIN’s mission is to “help women and their families help themselves”. Can’t argue with that!

Go here to see an inventory of my purchases.

Retro dresser $30…it’s still there

Books! It’s like the internet on paper.

I’ve entered bizarro world.

Books galore!

Oddities too special to be out in the store. These treasures are sealed away in a glass case.

Happy trails!
