My Favorite Thrift Store

My favorite thrift store, Marita Butikken, came through for me again today.  I have been debating about getting a new piece of furniture for our dining room.  I had an idea of what I wanted, a substantial piece of furniture that was black or dark wood.  When I walked downstairs at Marita I saw this beauty.  I called Jon, emailed my Mom, talked to another Norwegian customer and went upstairs and paid for it.  It will be delivered on Tuesday and I am so excited.  I couldn't get any information about how old it is or where it was made, but I don't care.  I love it and I think it is going to be a great addition to our home!


  1. lovely piece! - It seems like you are adjusting well to life in Norway.. Hope we can meet up for coffee one of these days! - From Where in Houston are you? I am from Kingwwod.

    1. Thanks! We are settling in well. I would love to meet up some time, now that the boys are at barnepark I actually have a little free time on my hands. We lived in Spring for about 3 years. It is such a small world.
