Stumbled on some great bargains!
Today while I was doing my bi-weekly shopping I stopped at my area Salvation Army thrift store. I always stop there because I've gotten many great things. One of the best was a fantastic Jenn-Air dishwasher for $15.
At any rate, I was "grazing" the shelves and happened upon 9 green plastic Christmas tree-shaped dishes. I'm always on the prowl for things like this because I make lots of goodies at Christmastime and give them away. Well, these little treasures had a price tag of 10 cents on each one. I grabbed all of them. They'll be perfect to fill with candies, which is what I plan to give next Christmas.
A bit of cellophane and some ribbon and I'll have a nice gift for very little cash.
Also got a Mariah Carey Christmas CD for $1.00. It was a good day at the thrift store.
Finally, I picked up a manual pasta machine with several cutters for $3.00. Yeah!!!! That puppy is going on eBay.
