Hippies and Their Shit

Yay for Canadian Antiques Roadshow! It's my new favourite show. The American version always undervalues Canadian furniture and primitives and the British version is boring.

This week, Roadshow was in Vancouver. Men with beards in brushed cotton twill button-down shirts from Eddie Bauer. Women with short hair and windbreakers. I love the West Coast folk! And they're all hippies at one level or another. They're all, "reduce-reuse-recycle" so they have no end of crap in their damp basements. One guy even brough a ventriloquist's dummy. Classic.
