Once I got inside, the amount of stuff was overwhelming and I thought I had hit the motherload! SO MUCH STUFF!!!
But as I got closer, it seemed like people had just donated their junk. You know what I mean? Broken stuff, pitchers with broken handles, picture frames with the little stand thing broken off...who wants that? And see the sign in the picture above that says "Uptown Store"? That must be code for "the other side of the room" store, cause it was just like everything else. I mean, I have imagination and a tad of creativity and I think I can find a use for just about anything...but, wow...this was awful! They just kept announcing that "there's more for us to put out tomorrow...this isn't everything!". What?? There's more junk where this came from? Can't wait for that!
I couldn't, just couldn't leave empty handed so I found 6 things I had to have! Here's a picture of all my little pieces...and just look at that sweet, chippy basket!
There are 2 bisque pieces marked Occupied Japan...the little piano and the man sitting on something. Looks like he's trying to play a toilet plunger, but that can't be right. It has to be some kind of horn.
There's a very, very cute terrier planter, but what's up with the dalmation spots? And, the teeniest little deer...how cute is that?
I took a walk down the Electronics aisle and found a CD that most definitely dates me more than I want to admit...The Mama's and Papa's Greatest Hits...Dream A Little Dream Of Me, anyone? And, a last minute trip down the Home Decor aisle brought to something I did really need, a fireplace tool set! Yea, I know...we don't use it here in Central Florida, but no reason to just shout it out to everyone. The fireplace now looks complete!
GRAND TOTAL??? Five Dollars! Five! 500 pennies! It may not have been the big haul I was counting on, but I am so happy with what I got. Great way to start a Thursday. Just great.
Till tomorrow...and don't forget...it's Show & Tell Friday!!!
