We have a radio shopping show in this area -- where you can get great deals on dining, hotels and entertainment -- we shop there often -- you pay about $3 for a $15 gift certficate for meal, on of our greatest deals is $54 - 2 nights stay at a resort up north and it includes Friday night fish fry, Saturday night Prime Rib and Sunday brunch for 2! You have to watch the deal days -- that certificate I think cost between $75 - $100 originally (still a great deal) but they will have 1/2 off or Lets Make a Deal Day and Dear Hubby loves this show -- and it really allows us to do alot more for less.
Well his sister also loves this show and she got me a $10 gift certificate for a Thrift shop about 1/2 hour away -- we also had a restaurant coupon in that area so off we went Monday after work -- Now the $10 gift certificate probably cost about $3 or less and here are just a few of my finds!
Vintage Wood Clothespins -- I purchased 117 for 1 cent each -- OH and did I tell you that EVERYTHING was at least 25% off!! What a deal!
Two galvanized tubs great for plantings -- $1 each so after the sale 75 cents each!!!
Cute porcelain tea pot for $2 -- after the sale prie $1.50 - another great planter!
Here is on of my most unique treasures a 1966 calendar the old fashion kind a printed on fabric calendar in a vintage frame again it was $1 = so really 75 cents!
Have done a little more organizing and going thru my endless pile of magazines and books this week, want the spare room and the basement cleaned by the end of January -- so I have been working a little a day on that.
Looking forward to sewing this weekend.
