|Is a canning jar a treat?|
|A tiny silver tray. The cream and sugar dishes were a gift.|
Not only that, it's a fairly equivalent financial trade-off. While I'd never buy $100.00 of gelato and cookies in one sitting, my weekly spending at my favourite cafes and restaurants has decreased significantly over the past 6 months. And, although I am an impulsive shopper, I don't shop just to shop. I have a running list of items I am searching for and buy them when I see them! The hunt is a big part of the enjoyment for me.

|I've been looking for a platter with this shade of red for ages!|
Almost everything I've bought recently has been second-hand. And, I must say, impulsivity is the key to shopping vintage, if you don't buy it when you first see it, it will be gone!
