WTF Wednesday: Moving to Colorado


Hello Wednesday! Hello WTF!

There will be no creepy dolls today, I'm sorry - but I have some WTF news to share - Skippy Haha Vintage is officially moving to Colorado. 

welcome to colorful colorado


Though a tragic change in family circumstances is driving this decision, it's definitely a positive move on the whole - there are a few really awesome people in Denver that we're lucky to spend a lot more time around in the coming years.

I am extremely sad to be leaving the river that flows through our backyard.

I am a little worried that the thrift stores of Colorado will not measure up to the wondrous bounty of Western NC's goodwills, but hoping to find lots of old rodeo duds.

I am sad to be leaving some excellent friends, and Asheville's progressive creative hippie community where I immediately felt welcome when I first came to visit 10 years ago (this week!)

I am sad to be leaving Marco's pizza.

I am excited to be in an awesome (warm! thick-walled!) house in Evergreen.

I am excited for all the spectacular hiking opportunities in Colorado.

I am excited to live in a state where grass is legal and swat teams are not busting into people's homes over a plant. 

I am excited to live in a state where Single Payer Health Care is on the ballot next week.

I am excited to live much closer to some of the most amazing, generous, fun-loving, adventurous, brave, funny, and smart friends and family in existence.

Our moving date is in November - which is now officially this month. 

I'll do my best to be back next week with more WTF treasures. 

As with all wtf wednesdays, there are no answers, only questions leading to more questions.

What a great run for you in Asheville. Sure you are sad about some things but what you are moving to is outrageously YOU too. Lucky you've had these choices in life. All Positive ones. You aren't moving there to hide from the law or because of any other hard times you've fallen on. Your new place is stunning. The land is full of excitement and yes the close people you are going to be sharing the next leg of your life with are stimulating, fun, smart.
I wouldn't mind being YOU.
Hugs

Best of luck! Lucky for me I can still stalk you on the internet :) I've always said my #2 place to live is CO. Super jelli
I cannot help you with your Marcos withdrawal as it is my fave pizza hands down. I can't get anyone to eat it with me as much as I want to :(
I bet you will find some super thrifts too!
