I picked up a few bargains this weekend. My first stop was the Kroger supermarket. There’s not much blooming in the garden right now, so I checked out the reduced items in their floral department.
I had white flowers in mind and found this bouquet reduced from $25 to $3.99. I’ll mix in garden flowers to make a centerpiece for the dinner table.
Next I stopped by my favorite thrift/junk store (the one that sells abandoned items from storage units). I found two DVD’s for $2 each. One of them is a “double feature,” so that’s 3 movies for $4. I picked up four vintage cookbooks (produced by Better Homes and Gardens and Southern Living). They were 50 cents each. They’re displayed on vinyl-clad plate stands.
The plate stands, the feathered bird ornaments, the ceramic fish that holds a tea light candle, the little round decorated box, the metal basket of potpourri, the metal clipboard, the set of blown glass Christmas ornaments, and the set of clear lights totaled $3. So the total for everything in the two photographs was $9.
On the way home I stopped at Goodwill. It was their half price Saturday event, so everything was on sale. I found a box of blue glass dishes that didn’t have a price.
I stopped an employee to ask how much they would be. She went in the back and returned with a $14.99 sticker.
