Saturday turned out to be a great day. (Hope it was a good day for you, too.)
After breakfast, coffee, and reading the morning paper, I couldn't wait to get into the car and drive to a church's annual spring indoor "tag" sale. This is a big event that has increased in popularity every single year. People actually wait in droves outside the door for the 9 a.m. opening. Been there, done that, but don't do it anymore. I really don't like pushing and shoving and prefer to go in more calmly.
It was probably 9:30 a.m. when I got there and overheard one of the church workers say people arrived like locusts and pretty much cleaned out all of the tables. Glancing at the line-up, there was still a huge amount of "stuff" so I can only imagine how much there was previously.
Being very discerning these days about what comes home with me, I bought with this Victorian looking lady, possibly for a dollhouse, since she had the prettiest face, and cost only $2; a cd of music from the movie, Titanic, for $1; and two packages of tea lights for 25 cents a pack. Thought that was a pretty good deal.
Anyway, a beautiful, tall cobalt blue bottle (shown at the top of today's post) could not be passed up. Made in Spain, originally $12.99, the Goodwill price tag on it read $4.50 with a slash through it so I think it cost only $2.25. It's a nice bottle. At first, it fell into the "gift" category but since it's so pretty, I'm keeping it. (Does that still count as a gift?)
Also found was this adorable, sparkly winged angel, holding the hands of a small girl. Now this is going to be a gift for someone whose daughter is expecting a girl. Isn't the face of the little one precious?
