Hubby and I hit four Goodwill stores today for their 50% off sale, and boy were they jam packed with people. What does it say about our society when $2.99 is too much to pay for something and you have to wait for the 50% off sale?! It's funny, too, what people find to buy. When I looked at what other people had, so much of it seemed like junk, but they were happy. And I'm sure they--and possibly a few of you--think I'm nuts too, but it was fun, and we came home exhausted after nearly 6 hours of driving around town and pushing through crowds of people, all looking for bargains.
And what did I buy? Well, I'll probably show you some of it in the next few days--the van was pretty well loaded with bags. But today I wanted to tell you what I got for YOU! Yes, indeed, I bought YOU something--if you're the person whose name I draw next Saturday!
Almost the first thing I saw this a.m. was another teapot with a copper insulated cover like the one I bought several weeks ago--one of my great "finds" that started me down the thrifting pathway.
Unfortunately, this one is missing its lid, but covered with the insulator, you'd never know. So, it's not perfect, but then what in life truly is?! Here's how it looks topless:
If you're interested in entering my drawing, please leave me a comment saying you want in. You need to ask to be in the drawing, though, because I don't want to chase off anyone who wants to comment but doesn't want the teapot, okay?
And for my sister-in-law Kathy--Kath, we got you something too! Hubby will probably come by with it sometime this week. Late birthday present!
And Chris from Sacramento--I tried to watch for you, but I was pretty busy hunting for treasures. Your comments come through without an email address, so I haven't been able to write back, but if you made it out to Goodwill today, I hope you had fun!
Thanks, everyone, for stopping by to visit me! I hope you enjoyed your Memorial Day weekend!
