I took a couple pictures with my phone at Value Village in St. Albert a couple weeks ago. They were such neat things but I haven't been able to download them!
But even though it's weeks later, I thought I would just mention them anyway....
There was a large (would guess about 12" x 12" x 36") aquarium (no visible cracks) for about $30?. Would be a wonderful container for a miniature scene OR a cover for a 1:48 street scene.
Aquariums are great settings for mini scenes! See my camping scene.
There was also a dollhouse (three stories)) that surprisingly was 1:12 scale. Think it was $30-35.
Sorry I wasn't able to download the pictures OR report on this in a timely fashion.
