My favorite place in Oregon

Once upon a time, there was a magical place called Cart M. It was in a small town called Manzanita, on the Oregon Coast.

It was a cross between a dump, a recycling center and a thrift store! People came from miles around just to see it!

They had very special things there...like an avocado green toilet with a wooden seat!

And a big, beautiful piece of art made from thousands of recycled cans!

They made it very easy to figure out where to put stuff.

There were wonderful things to see inside the thrift store too! Like...

I always wanted a planter made from a cup and saucer and rick rack and pennies! Hooray for Cart M!

That has got to be the ugliest toilet I have ever seen, lol.

How could anyone give up that planter? What an amazing place...looks like a fun place to find a treasure or two.

Another place I've never heard of....and I'm down near Manzanita all the time.

I think I'd have to pass on the toilet, even though I currently have the most awful blue one (complete with sink and tub) you'd ever come across. lol

That one would actually look great in the right setting, say perhaps a bungalow.
