A Thrifting Dream...

Hometown proud....

I grew up in a small town on the East Coast of Canada called Hubbards, Nova Scotia. One thing I continually miss about my home province is a little thing called FRENCHY'S...

The FRENCHY'S story:

The original  Guy's Frenchys Store opened in Meteghan River in Digby Co. Nova Scotia, Canada in the early 70's.  Used clothing was a relatively unique concept in 1972 but the idea caught on fast with consumers.

Edwin Therialult the pioneer of Frenchy's, started his line of Frenchy's stores with 1 single bale of clothing imported from the United States in the early 70's. Edwin's strive to keep his customers happy with quality used clothing has made him a successful store owner for many years and keeping with his work ethics promises to keep him in business for many years to come.

So these stores were where my girlfriends and I would go on "road trips" to...We would do a complete circuit of the Frenchy's stores and find the most amazing brand name/vintage clothing all for under 5$ an item!! Digging through bins and bins of clothes...We were in our glory!!!
