Karen found my favorite thing of the sale...isn't this the best???? Not sure where I'm going to put it, but it must be a place of honor!!! Thanks for you eagle eyes Karen!!! If you've been reading my blog for awhile you know that we have a tradition amongst our group.
Lynda started this and thank goodness she makes us do it because it often results in hysterics, quick potty breaks, and over heating!
We all have to set up and display our purchases that we have acquired on our trip...from everywhere we have purchased something.
We'll start off with Terry's display...
Now to be completely fair, the lunchbox is Lynda's. Terry was being sneaky!! But please take note of the red lantern. The FIVE DOLLAR red lantern!!!! That was Terry's favorite purchase, and all for the bargain price of FIVE DOLLARS!!! Did I mention it was FIVE DOLLARS??
I'd like you to also take note of the small thermos. Remember how I told you there was a thermos story here??
Keep reading, it will come out...
Karen and her lovely display and cheerful smile!!!!
Karen shops very carefully on our trips, usually looking for one or two particular items. She has been looking for a large wooden bowl for quite some time now and wouldn't you know that she found one in the first booth she went to...and she talked them down from $25 to $2o!!! Her favorite purchase!!!!
There was, however, a slight accident involving the bowl as it was being taken out of the car.
A clean break it was and Karen assured the dropper of the bowl that it could be easily repaired and was only for display purposes!!!! Karen was not present at the accident, but I must admit that the dropper was HORRIFIED at what happened!!! Two of us were in hysterics while wailing and moaning was happening nearby. Sorry Karen, but I wish you could have seen it!!!! I won't reveal the name of the dropper, but she is adorable, and forgiven!!!
Some of the items in Karen's display were donations from the bowl breaker!!! Trying to make things better!!! Again, two of us in hysterics while this is going on!!!!
Karen came up with a new display for her "bowls" which we all quite liked!
Lynda got quite a few goodies, including that cute little dustpan that I covet!!!! I guess the big thermos was hers too. That Terry, always sneaking others goodies!!!
Sorry you're eyes are closed, Linny, but I only took one picture! I wish I had Lynda on video when she was telling us about everything. She is so funny!!! I can't begin to describe how entertaining she is, but I promise you she was a hoot!!
My Walton sign kept falling off my door, knocking things over and being irritable!! I love old school supplies and scrapbooky stuff! Now, take a good look at my thermos. Pretty huh??? I collect old Thermos's and I didn't think I had this one. It was very shiny, had a "Bakelite" lid, and a cork. I debated on whether or not to get it, as it was $12, and I don't normally spend that much. But, after some deliberation, I put my money down!!!!
Remember Terry's thermos? The one that looks like mine??? She got hers for $2...yes...I know...bummer for me, but Yea for her!!!!
To make matters worse, I already have this thermos...on display...in my kitchen... You'd think I would have known this. This was my "regret" purchase!! We all seem to have one!!
Okay, only one more day. Not so many pictures, but it may take two posts. I don't want to bore you with a lOOOONg post. You're probably already tired of this, but it will be over soon!!!!
Have a great weekend!!
