On Sunday, Hubby and I finally went downtown to spend the Zone gift certificate we received as a wedding gift almost three years ago. For those who aren’t familiar with this store, basically it’s a modern/hip place that is very bright and very white.
I’m not really into these kind of stores and consider myself more of an “antique/flea market” type of gal, but there were some nifty things at Zone, and being the crazy person I am, I took tons of photos, while snobby people looked appalled. It was fun! Here’s a view of the store:
and some fun things we found, like these nut cracker squirrels:
mice for cheese boards:
and interesting chandeliers:
At the other end of the store, we found some cool clocks:
The second one is the one we ended up buying. It has a little red plane that goes around the continents, very neat! I liked the above ones too, they show the gears working. But it stuck out too much from the wall. Still, I might buy one of them in the future.
I’ve been bitten by the “redecoration bug” lately. Last weekend I went to Bed, Bath and Beyond with my mom and spent WAY too much money, so it was nice to find this old gift certificate. It didn’t go very far (Another reason I like second hand stuff), but at least we got some more items for our house.
