I went to Marshalls….one of my favorite stores. I love the quality and they have very good prices, especially the clearance. The frame on the left side is actually a shadow box, letter is scribed in the glass is M – which is for my youngest daughters room – it will stay cream but, I will add a different cloth to the inside – this was only 15 bucks – I had eyed it a few weeks ago but didn’t buy it.The organizer in the middle is going in my studio and it will become black. The two frames were only three bucks a piece and I may paint the silver one, but not for sure yet….(I am a woman and I am allowed to change my mind any given time – that’s the rule ! ) It pays to go to the same store week after week. Marshalls marks down stuff all the time,they also get in new stuff a couple of times a week. I found out that one of the days the store re stocks the shelves is Thursday –right before the weekend. If you can shop on Thursday night, you will catch all the deals first. This is my insider tip LOL.
The Dollar Store – need I say more ???? I really get a kick out of the store, especially when they post signs like “ 12” pot for $1.) I really wanted to ask the clerk “why how much is the 14” pot ??) Anyway –those huge heavy glass mugs are because my 20 year old son always complains when visiting our kitchen that we don’t have any big glasses….well here ya go ! The large votive square glasses are really cool..I think they are too big for a votive candle – but you can add stuff with it to pretty it up. The stars I love – I am thinking Christmas time or Memorial Day, Fourth of July and even Labor day. Use them for desserts, candles, and kinds of stuff. All the glass is made from Anchor Hocking which is a nice brand. I love the Buck Store (So does my wallet !)
Spode Blue Italian….I am starting to collect – all on clearance and 2 different Marshalls –thirteen bucks,seven bucks and three bucks..pretty good I think. Another tip is when visiting other towns,find out where Marshalls, TJ Maxx , etc are because they all get different things !
See the sweet frame – three bucks, oh and the two frames in picture number 1 were three bucks ! Now I got to get some pictures. The blue crab bar and grill platter and bowl thing was on clearance, Oh Yeah Baby – I love them and would not pay the normal marked down price – I got them both for ten bucks !
I have been wanted one of these... to display perfectly useless stuff, but I am cheap and did not want to spend more then ten bucks…this one had my name on it for $5.50 – a steal ! It even came with the sand and shells – I really did quite well today. I am the professional shopper, ya know…..
