Three old metal receipe/filing boxes. I thought I could use them in my craft supplies that I am trying to get organized. I've mentioned before that the pricing can be odd at this thrift - different people volunteer every day and price things differently. Case in point - these boxes. One was 25¢, one was 35¢ and the third one was 50¢. Go figure. Still, $1.10 isn't bad for three nice old metal boxes. Now for the "Oh, no you did-un't" purchase. A pair of scarecrow bunnies. I do not need these. I have too much fall decor. I have too much Halloween decor. I do not need these. I picked them up three times and put them back. But, that fourth time, in the bag they hopped. Especially after I saw they were only 25¢ each. I do not need these. I want them!
Outside the store they are still throwing random things in a box for FREE. I dug these two old tins out of a box and had The Bean run them to the car. They are old and have neat old pictures on them, but aren't overly special. But, for FREE, why not?
And, lastly, a set of homemade "Snowbabies". They are cute/ugly. Homemade ceramics, covered in glitter. Actually, they are sort of sweet and I know someone worked hard to make them. I know that this Christmas, nestled in some greenery with some twinkly lights, they will be cute and the ugliness won't show. Much. They were 25¢ each. The lady at the counter "ooh'ed" and "ahhh'ed" over them and showed them to everyone in line saying how CUTE they were. Glad I didn't mention I found them to be borderline ugly. She might have kept them!
