Kelowna's Finest

Refusing to let Hector's shenanigans or the after effects of several margarita's ruin my day, I was up relatively early to go to the farmers market with Dana and Brent. We spent a good hour walking around, checking out local goods and taking time to snicker at the frizzy-haired, bleach-blonde, eyeliner-abusing, tattooed, Pamela Anderson wannabes that Dana has cleverly branded as 'Kelowna Hot'.

Once we became bored of that, we headed home and hit up a few garage sales along the way. It's fun to see what value people place on their belongings.
- a box full of empty smuckers jam jars: $2.50
- a dozen driving range balls: $5.00
- gold-coloured oil-burning candles: $10.00
- heavy trunk style suit case, damaged: $50.00
- child-sized ninja costume: $5.00
- curling trophy, name plate removed: $1.00
- 80's era electronic keyboard: $5.00

and my favorite....

I did spot a pair of practically new roller skates in my size for $10. I'm not a rollerskater, but I know a hot deal when I see one. So, I bought them, figuring maybe I could teach myself. How hard could it be?

Good, good call on the roller-skates. A whole new way to get to work.

A little disappointed you didn't pick up the 80's keyboard though....

Emma right, great way to get to work, but the design is better suited for stopping on an incline than a decline. The curling club hill will be interesting!

I hear that Lance Armstrong did hill repeats on his roller skates as cross training... Edworthy Wednesday evening?
