The answer to my quandary was Dollar General. And, it just so happens that one of my favorite thrifts is thisclose to the Dollar General. But, surely it wouldn't be open today - the day before Thanksgiving. The whole place is run by a bunch of Grandma's that surely must have turkeys to roast, pies to make and cranberries to sauce. No, I knew it wouldn't be open. But that didn't stop me from doing a drive-by. And, yippee, it was OPEN!
Straight to the Christmas I went. My eyes surveying the table looking for sparkle. And, what did I spy with my little eye?
A big old box of SPARKLE! Actually, two boxes and a baggie full, but here it is all in it's glory. And, only $2.25 for it all. There are a lot of the smaller ones that I dearly love in there, but they have sunk to the bottom.
Hey! What's that over there? More sparkle?A vintage Christmas corsage. My very first one! In perfect condition. It's almost like it had never been out of the box.
What? Moooooooore sparkle?
