So this is not a food post today but one where I tell you about my amazing finds at the Salvation Army store. I was walking around looking at all of the odds and ends and knick knacks and toys.
What is that thing sitting in the back of the shelf? Are my eyes deceiving? It was a PERFECT piece of Portmeirion! It is a beautiful heart shaped dish from the Botanic Garden collection with a Dog Rose (or Rosa Cantina) pattern. And I mean...perfect...no scratches, no chips, not dirty. It was $2.99. Yep....that's right. I scooped it up and into the cart I carefully deposited this treasure. Price on the internet? $50.00...YA-HOO!
My next find was a full case of very old Matchbox cars. I am going to research those and see what the value is...in the very least, my grandsons will love them. But I paid $3.00 for the whole case.My SIL found a GORGEOUS dress from White House/Black Market. There it was...on the rack at the Salvation Army...her size...in perfect condition...Price...$7.00. Regular retail? $168.00 Wow! We were so lucky that day! It feels good to get a bargain these days...you never know what you are going to find! And after that hard day of shopping we came home and celebrated with pomegranate martinis! WHAT A GREAT DAY!! (Oh...and the guys came in second in the tourney! LOL)
