My FAV haunts for crafting & upcycling finds

I've been remiss with crafting lately... I've been working on TBD admin and design stuff the past few days. It was time to revisit all of my social media channels, the TBD blog and today was all about my TBD website. I first started updating the TBD Local Haunts page - new locations, photos and addresses. This opened up a big can of worms. A tweek here, a tweek there and before you know it... One hour turned into three. Oops!

These are the hot spots I'm featuring...

First my most favourite thrift store - the Lions Gate Thrift Shop at 128 West 15th Street in North Vancouver. This is where I tend to score FAB jewelry, clothes and crafty supplies. Plus the volunteers are super lovely!



The Good Stuff Connection is good for clothing and home decor finds. It's at 154 West 3rd Street in North Vancouver.



Note: visit my TBD website for the local Salvation Army thrift stores.

Of course I've included Button Button at 318 Homer Street in Vancouver... You can ALWAYS find something at Button Button!



And right around the corner is Dressew at 337 West Hastings Street in Vancouver. This is one huge fabric store with everything you'll ever need. Just avoid it leading up to Halloween... It gets insanely busy!



Urban Source is a crafter/upcycler's dream store! Urban Source is 3126 Main Street in Vancouver. You can either buy new craft supplies or grab a goodie bag and fill it with all sorts of 'junk' that is worthy of being upcycled.



I realize not too many people will find themselves dropping by the Gibsons Recycling Depot for fun when trekking to the Sunshine Coast but it really is worthy of a visit!



The Share Shed at the Sechelt Dump usually has furniture looking to be reloved. It's a deal-o-rama since everything in the Share Shed is $1!



Squamish ReBuild is a FAB spot for finding just about anything.



Any Habitat for Humanity ReStore is worth checking out. I've been finding tons of funky drawer pulls for my salvaged wood organizers for super cheap!



So those are a few of my FAV spots to hit for projects, supplies and inspiration. Check out my mini web update at www.thriftybydesign.ca. I added all of my social media channels, updated content and added a few new pretty pictures. I've been somewhat industrious today. Yay!
