    Just what the title says, show us your shopping finds! It can be a high end store, thrift shop, walmart, yard sale....WHEREVER! What did you find that made you happy you went?

    My daughter and I went shopping today. Hit 5 stores (Sears, JCPenny, Kohl's, TJMax, and Carson) and bought exactly NOTHING! :rolleyes: I hate days like that. Go home feeling like the day was such a waste.....BUT THEN......

    We stopped at a yard sale on the way home and BAM! 50 Cents! :lol-sign:
    Made my day! :D

    That's so cute!

    The last thing I bought was this leash;

    It's not super nice, but it was $4 and it matches her swimming collar.

    I will add a pic when I get them put in, but I scored a set of pedestals for my washer and dryer for $20! They normally run $250 EACH, they are mismatched (ones white, one is grey, but they are just for my washer and dryer to sit on who cares! And if it bugs me that much I'll paint them or something lol.

    I don't have pictures but I have been cleaning. up. at the thrift stores recently. I've gotten 6 or so tank tops, five dresses, and three pairs of jeans, all of which are name brand (Banana Republic, Gap, American Eagle, etc) for soooooooo much less than I would have paid new.

    As I said they are different colours, but $20 vs. $500 I don't care! And they make a WORLD of difference for front load machines...I might start liking them now!

    Found this at an antique shop, cast iron boston, pretty sure it's a Hubley and got it for $90 (have seen them on ebay for $200 or more). Whoot!

    Also got this cute little guy, a Mortens Studio figurine (solid ceramic over a metal armature).
