Ikea and a Charity Run

I have now had the pleasure   pain of going to Ikea almost on a weekly basis over the past few months in order to finish my kitchen. So yesterday I found to my horror I had to go back again but this time I was determined that not only will I finally never have to go to Ikea again for a very, very long time I had to find something else to make the day better. I did!

A quick search on the internet and whoo hoo,  I found that there was a huge Emmaus (a French charity) set in a huge warehouse. I went with my girlfriend and we had a great day. I am not going to even mention  Ikea again as it is now  a distant memory and  I am delighted with my kitchen, thank you Ikea.

This Emmaus was on the outskirts of a village called Labarthe -sur- Leze and very close to you know where! Set in a massive warehouse and we spent a good hour rummagging around. So here are a few pics of what we found. I did of course to my pleasure find some stunning vintage buttons but they all have to be cleaned very carefully before you get to see them :).  I could have bought this adding machine  to tally how many visit's to you know where! but decided my memory would do that for me.

These plates would be perfect for any Greek wedding, and what better place for this loving couple to be!

This lovely little lady was wearing more lace than was for sale in the shop, she wouldn't let me take a photo of her skirt but trust me it had several yards of lace!!!!  Ok that's about it till my next jaunt out.

Great story on your not to mention the name of the store for kitchen remodel. And great photos!, that lovely couple remind me of Day of the Dead figurines. Looks like you had a great time at this rummage sale.
