Big bucks today, but some good stuff. $28.50, with $25 being for 2 items.
Two drawer metal filing cabinet in great shape, along with
A beautiful small oak table, both for $25.
A 25 cent pair of earrings for me
5 little gifts at an average of 20 cents each (including nice garnet earrings)
Wrapping paper, 8 unopened rolls
Glass Canister (that exactly matches another two I have, and was 15 cents)
Ziploc lunch box
The small table is almost like a miniaturized version of our dining room table; same oak cooler, same design. I polished it with mayonnaise; crazy tip, but it works wonders on wood. No it doesn’t stink. Let soak, then wipe up all excess, and buff buff buff. I was skeptical, too. I certainly wouldn’t call either the cabinet or table a steal, but I feel like I got good value.
And I went with a friend, which makes the whole process more fun. I have another social activity tonight, which is good because I don’t get out enough. Our community has an Arts Alive event the first Saturday of every month; businesses and galleries in our “Old Town” district showcase local artists and crafts people, and sometimes have some food. It’s nice to wander our locally owned stores and businesses, enjoying the summer and the sense of community.
