TALK ABOUT A BARGAIN!

 
I love our local Thrift Store, and I love a bargain!  Today was my lucky day. 
 
I was browsing around the store looking for a Crock Pot as my old one just died, I passed by the Jackets.  My eye caught a beige suede Jacket in perfect condition, lined, and my size.  Tried it on and then looked at the tag to see what the price was. It looked like $1.99, but I was sure that was wrong, so I asked the clerk.  She said it was right..so I didn't question her, but put in in my cart. 
 
I did find a Crock Pot and paid more for it than the jacket!
 
Come on colder weather, I'm ready for you!!

  1. When I first read your post above, I thought it said you were looking around for a new "crack" pot...lol. Then all kinds of funny thoughts came into my head ;-). Anyway, I like the color scheme and layout of your blog. Pretty cool!

    1. Oh John, that is funny. I do enjoy my blogging. It's been a hobby since 2007. Thanks for your kind words. I change the look quite often. The header is a picture I took on our trip to Boise.

    2. Yeah, I'm sure it's a lot of fun. I enjoy working on my own website, which is mostly centered around photos and occasional commentary. And using Photoshop, I get to create banners and things like that to enhance the visual.

  2. Wow, your Thrift Store is amazing. That jacket is a real find. $1.99!! That's just hard to believe. Glad you found the crock pot too. I know you would be lost without yours.
    Baked my first apple pie today. Hope it tastes as good as it smells. I took a short cut with a premade crust but the apples are from Apple Hill.

    1. Oh I'm so in the mood for a slice of your apple pie! They really make good premade crusts now and that really speeds up the process.

    3. Yep! Maybe I'll check out the boot section tomorrow!! I'm a 7 or 7 1/2 and most of the boots I've seen are to small or way to big. I'll keep checking!!

    1. Thanks Nonnie.... I'm sure gonna enjoy it. I've never had a suede jacket, and it feels so good, and the lining so silky.
