Did I get lucky shopping today!
The past weeks have been so hot that I haven't been shopping much. But today was just like a breezy, perfect fall day, high 70ÃÂº, and 92 sales advertised in the paper!
I bought significant things only at two places, one large rummage sale and the Goodwill As-Is Store. But to DH's chagrin, I loaded up on home and garden magazines (I always find some projects for him LOL!!)
I found these wonderful things at the rummage sale:
Eight vintage napkins and border tablecloth, a smaller tablecloth, and the bright red cloth which is new, but looks handmade because of the hem. All four for 60ÃÂ¢!
Then my favorite of the day--these perfect little "brick" cardboard houses, complete with the "Made in Japan" stamp on the bottom. They have a hole in the back for a Christmas light and cellophane in the windows. Even the cellophane is intact, except for a tiny rip in one window, they are in such good condition. Funny, when I was a kid "Made in Japan" was considered junk... she charged me 10ÃÂ¢ for all three!
The quilted table runner is about 7 feet long and is perfect for my lodge-y decor. Only 25ÃÂ¢.
And for good measure, this perfect condition Kitchenaid hand mixer (looks brand new) for $1.00.
At the Goodwill store I bought these crocheted snowflakes for 75ÃÂ¢ and the dish sets were $1.00 each. DH always sighs when I bring in more dishes (I may post the great new shelf he has made in the basement) but how can I resist at $1.00 a set?
I've seen some of your great buys lately, seems like we're getting into the Christmas (shopping) spirit!
