OMG I couldn't believe this top! It was literally perfect! Perfect size, perfect shape and it looked amazing! O knew that this was the perfect top for my first day of work and sure enough it was! I went to work and everyone complimented it left and right! What a great find!

I stopped at Guy's Frenchys Yarmouth this morning to see if I could find a match for a curtain that I bought the other day (yes this has happened to me before), this time however, I found something better...a cordless stick vacuum cleaner by Hoover. My next stop of the day was to go to Canadian Tire to buy a vacuum for my son's first apartment...no need to spend that money. The hoover was $8 and after cleaning it up and charging it it works perfectly and complete with manual and attachments. I just love Frenchys!

it was just an ordinary day in guys frenchy's. we were all set to pay when I glanced over and saw a small box that look like a Boston red sox themed item. I picked it up and was in disbelieve of what I had just discovered! it was a Boston red sox world series commemorative ring! I immediately asked the cashier how much it was. she said 1.50$. I was thrilled with the find! I put the ring on my finger. it was a bit big, but it still fit. I am defiantly going back soon to see what else lies within guy's frenchy's.

Below is what the original designer had to say about the jacket in my recent email to her for information on the jacket. She has her design studio is in WA , USA. Please read on.......
This is a very old style. The cost at the time was probably about $800-900. Today, it would be over $1,000. The mantra at my trade shows is "The good news is that it doesn't wear out and the bad news is that it doesn't wear out." We only use the finest of Merino Wool's. Each item is hand cut, hand appliqued and hand embroidered. Absolutely no commercial embroidery machines are used.
The style is over sized which was typical at the time, so that is the only thing that defines it's era.
I have a gem for sure!

I found a Bob Marley T-shirt at the Bouctouche Frenchy's a week before I went to Jamaica. It was quite a find since I was going the next week and I was quite excited about it. While in Jamaica we took an excursion to where Bob Marley grew up and wrote most of his famous songs and it was quite an experience. Once in a lifetime trip and experience for most people and I wore the shirt I found at Frenchy's. When we finished the tour of his home we went to the gift shop before leaving. The t-shirt I had on was in the gift shop. The guy working asked me where I got my shirt and I said "you don't want to know and you don't want to know how much for". The guy asked again and I said "I bought it in Canada for about $4.00". I heard about four people that took the tour with us laugh and the guy then asked if it was an orignal t-shirt. I asked him how would you know if it was original. The guy checked the tag on the t-shirt and said "it's got the stamp, it's original". He then leaned in and said "three quarters of the shirts in here are not original". Then I checked the price of the t-shirt I had on. It was $35.00 plus tax. Thank you Frenchy's for having such great clothes for such fantastic prices. I have shopped there religiously the past 6 years and I have preached the gospel to all my friends and famiily of how great your stores are.

Santa's outfit was made from Frenchy finds. The hat and vest were made from a cashmere sweater. The jacket from a wool skirt and trimmed with grey silver mink which was a collar from a Frenchy's jacket. His bag crafted from the top part of a dress and filled with a bear I also found at Frenchy's. All this was inspired by the fabulous grey and pink high tops which was one of my favorite finds. This is just one of the Santas that have been inspired by a Frenchy's treasure.
