Now we're going to talk about the day after Christmas....December 26th...the day of the continuing football games. After putting 2 games away in my brain and wondering why I wasted the cells, I decided to venture out into the retail world....maybe I should say the value world.  I very seldom pay retail anymore. The adventure is to find new stuff at a thrift store price. As I grabbed my keys I told my better half...."I shouldn't be very long, just want to look around "....Later on I made a call that said...dinner will be late tonight....snack all you want.  As I approach  my favorite thrift store I could hear choir of angels singing in my head, was I really seeing clear, I rubbed my eyes, focusing on the huge sign..... "EVERYTHING in store 50% off " and I mean everything.  I was trying at that moment to remember if I had my Wheaties for breakfast because I knew this was going to be a marathon. After all was said and done......the Thrift Store won...I had to go home before it closed due to pain in both knees... but.......boy did I make out like a bandit........One 1/2 price at a time.......


  1. Oooooh, I LOVE 1/2 price sales! You did great! Those china plates are beautiful. Thanks for stopping by tonight. :-)

  2. Hi Sherri, aren't good sales wonderful? Oh, the thrill of it.

    Love your charming pictures!

    Happy New Year and blessings,
