Treasure hunting

My friends Jc and Dani gave me a wonderful gift yesterday -- they took me with them to Gadabout, a little shop on Queen St. East, crammed to the gills with vintage treasures of all kinds. I'd heard about Gadabout some years ago but never made the long trek there on the streetcar, since I don't have a vehicle. (If you wait long enough, good things do happen!!)

I picked up a few things, but when I got home I realized one item was missing. They didn't charge me for it, so it must have fallen off my little pile on their desk. Still, I'm very happy with my treasures, and especially to have see the place for myself. It is definitely a favourite haunt.
