Lincoln Heights Sunday
We drove out to Lincoln Heights on Sunday morning to have breakfast at El Huarachito, not because it's the best breakfast in Lincoln Heights, but because it's close to the St. Vincent De Paul Thrift Shop! Breakfast was pretty good though. We each had huevos rancheros with a side of guac. My freshly squeezed orange juice was fresh, delicious and served in a sizable glass!
I hadn't been to the St. Vincent De Paul Thrift Shop in decades. I've purchased many treasures from this store in the past. I was reminded of the shop when we saw it from the Gold Line Metro Train the day before.
There's LOTS of furniture in this warehouse-sized thrift store. We were looking for a small end table for the couch in our living room.
After touring rows and rows of furniture, we finally saw the perfect table. It's definitely a mid-20th century table, two tiered, oak. It needs to be stripped and refinished. We might make it a dark wood color to match the floor, or even stain it a reddish or black tone to complement the rest of our living room. The price was right and our field trip to Lincoln Heights was delicious and productive!
