Show and Tell Friday is hosted by Kelli at There is No Place Like Home.
Yesterday I returned to the thrift shop and came upon piles of Christmas stuff that donors had been bringing in to the store. Among them were lots of snowmen and santas. I started selecting one or two here and there, when I noticed that one of the ladies at the front desk was waving at me, trying to get my attention. She asked me to remind her of my name, then told me that there was a box at the desk with snowmen. She put it on the desk for me to go through and I selected some of them.
After filling up a plastic shopping bag with books, I gathered 2 small containers of other stuff and went up to the desk to check out. I told her I would probably have to put back some stuff because I was short on cash. She looked at my pile of things and said "Just make an offer." I told her, "Well, all I have to offer is $5.00." She said, "That’s fine." I had one bag of books for $1.00 and that left $4.00 for all the rest:
Soft snowmen of cloth, etc.
Five resin figurines
Ceramic, glass and candle figures
Carved wood and painted wood snowmen. The one on the left has a sticker, "TJ CARVER/ Real Wood Carvings"
Tiny whimsical snowmen, including one plastic wind-up walker
Green ceramic stool to place a figure on, and snowman-decorated box
Three Santa items, a brass reindeer ornament, glass salt & pepper
All these for four dollars! And so my Snowpeople and Santa collections were enhanced with my brief store visit.
Thanks for stopping by and looking at my thrifty finds. Visit more Show and Tell at There is No Place Like Home.
