One Man’s Trash is Another Man’s Treasure

Fretex is Norway’s biggest shop and the major contributor of recycling which sells used stuff like clothes, furniture and etc. for a very low price. it is owned by Frelsesarmeen (The Norwegian Salvation Army). It is like a garage sale except that Fretex has its own shop. They do not just sell used things, they accept your old stuff as well, as long as it is still in a good condition.

Last Saturday, my bf and I went to Fretex with mom and my cousin. We took them there because they were looking for semi antique home decorations at very affordable prices. I couldn’t think of any other shops that sell antiques so we drove to Fretex Mariero and Sandnes.

As usual he went to the book section!

 
These dolls gave me the creeps… I don’t know why..


Hva ser du her? traslated as What do you see here? This toddler book reminds me of my childhood days.


 Beautiful painting but it’s boring.

This was inside Fretex Mariero

 

This one’s at Fretex Sandnes


A classic figurine.

 
Lots of glass!

 

Another pair of dolls…

 
 This is the most beautiful doll in the shop but then it’s creepy!
By buying stuff from Fretex, you are not just helping Mother Earth but also the unemployed people.
