Snickerdoodle and I went out for a bit on Saturday. She was trying to find a swimsuit that didn't show everything, was not frumpy, did not cost an arm and a leg. Right. Stop laughing, right now. If I couldn't laugh at the time, neither can you. I thought a tankini would be really cute on her. I had very similar specifications in a swimsuit at her age and would have loved a tankini...they just were not available at the time...5 years later, I could find them.
Anyway, she stopped by Plato's Closet to sell some stuff and found a really cute pair of capris. Then to Goodwill (should have gone to Savers) but anyway, in we went. No jeans (I have better luck at Savers for jeans/slacks), but I found the cutest little lamp. Black metal and a shade that had beaded fringe and beads around the top...around $5.50 for the pair. I DID have a yellow wooden one in my hand, but saw this one instead.
I was pretty pleased with my find. No idea of the retail price, but I know it's not $2.99...I was VERY pleased with myself. We got out to the truck and climbed in, and my daughter showed me what she'd bought. For ONE dollar. Each..color me deflated...really deflated.
Sheesh. I should be very proud of her but, sigh, she outscored me...vinyl, excellent shape. Sigh. A dollar each. ETA: Guess I could have mentioned the names. Both albums are the Eagles...their FIRST one and On the Border. sigh. Now she has to find a turntable she can afford ;D
And on that sad note, skip over to Southern Hospitality and check out the other goodies. I'm just going to sit here and sulk a while.
