City Museum & The Baleout
Today's weather wasn't terrifying (i.e. didn't make me want to hide under piles of blankets with the dogs and some sort of TV show marathon on Netflix) so we visited City Museum and the vintage shop that lives inside of it (!) called The Baleout. The museum was nice, and they had an adult sized ball pit. Adult sized!
I was mainly interested in the vintage shop, of course (and this random giant pterodactyl guy, apparently). I managed to snag a burgundy velvet dress for $3 that needs a bit of altering, as well as a stripey top and green sweater. Had I visited this place sooner I could have stocked up on plenty of holiday-themed sweaters and dresses and things. (I mean really, this place is like a kingdom of vintage sweaters. Racks and racks!)
After that we went to City Garden again, which was terribly pretty at twilight with the christmas lights still up.
The scariest dressing room ever! You sort of slide the door around and it's completely dark and there's a sign instructing you to only turn it about halfway, so as to let a bit of light in. And I do mean a bit. It was the strangest dressing room I've ever participated in.
