I shopped ‘til I dropped on Saturday. I hit up most of the thrift stores in the area and found some serious goodies. There was some stalking involved…don’t judge me! I’ll explain below.
Table – Salvation Army
Paper Towel Holder – Deseret Industries $1.00
Frame – Savers $1.99
Mercury Glass Candleholder – Goodwill $3.99
Small Bird with Crown – Michael’s HALF-OFF
Wood Candlesticks – Goodwill $1.99 each
Large Bird with Crown – Michael’s HALF-OFF
Frame - Deseret Industries $3.00
Vase – Goodwill $3.99
So which item did I have to stalk someone to get? The vase!
Have you ever been shopping and seen someone carrying something you really want? So you follow them around hoping they’ll change their mind and set it down? Or is this just me?
I was wandering around the knick knack/houseware section of Goodwill and I saw a lady carrying that vase. I wanted it immediately. I cursed myself for spending too long looking at other things and missing out on that piece. So, I did what any normal person would do...I followed her around. I stayed on the opposite side of the shelf so I wasn’t too obvious, but close enough that I could jump on it if she changed her mind. And guess what? She put it down and walked away! I grabbed it and ran to the cashier before anything could happen to it.
I know. I’m weird. But this weirdo has a fancy-schmancy vase to show for it!
