I don’t know about you, but it seems like whenever I’m looking for a specific item, I never can find what I’m looking for at that particular time. Then when I’m NOT looking, I stumble upon what I call “fabulous finds”. In fact, when I had a booth at a local antique mall, that was the name of my business. Last week was a good “fabulous finds” week!
On my way home from a hair appointment last Monday afternoon I ran into a flea market that I used to go to quite often. I found several old coffee burlap sacks that didn’t have a price. I took one to the front where the cashier called the vendor (who owns the flea market) and asked him how much he wanted for it…..$8.00 Baby! Sold!!!
Then on Friday I was in Penney’s returning some shirts for husband when on my way to the customer service desk I noticed an 80% off sale display and there I found some really great boxed faux plants…..for $7.97 each, regular $40.00! I bought the last 4 they had.
I would NEVER have paid $40.00 for this (or even the $19.99)!
On Saturday I ran into a little outlet place that always has wonderful housewares at giveaway prices where I bought a huge lantern for $8.99…..some of the glass was missing but that that doesn’t bother me a bit.
I hate paying retail for anything and I also love the thrill of the hunt. I’d say I did pretty good on all my “fabulous finds” wouldn’t you?
I’ve just got to share these pictures I took of the twins yesterday. We kept them Saturday night and Sunday morning things got really quiet. I found them in the sunroom playing with their DS’s (I think that’s what they’re called?)…..they hadn’t been up long so they have bedhead hair and the clothes on they slept in….priceless!
Check out those expressions!
Then Taylor got ahold of my camera and took her own pictures of her doll, her ankle bracelet (which is something that goes in her hair) and her handwriting workbook
Hope you all have a great Monday!
