Track and field volunteering today, so high jumping came to mind. But really it was just a funny thing that happened on the way to the thrift store...
I had a big bag of boys clothes to drop off at the end of the day. And decided to stop in before going home to the hubbub. Ticked off in my mind what the 'need' list was and remembered a cozy very casual sweatshirt would bring utmost happiness. (My current favorite has been sewed up once already).
It always cracks me up, the thrift stores have sales! Today it was 10 clothes for $10. OK, not bad! But you had to buy 10 to get the discount. I went in and looked for the perfect sweatshirt. Found a really nice cashmere top by Juicy Couture (though I don't follow labels, am sure this is good quality). And a fairly good but cozy sweatshirt. And one or two other decent tops for work. Nothing in the interesting blouse section or comfortable pant area.
The manager made an announcement the store was closing in 1/2 hour.
I noticed at least 3 or 4 other ladies doing speed shopping to get up to 10 items. I considered bailing out on the deal cause I really didn't want ten new things. I had 5 and though I looked fast and thoroughly didn't even find 5 more things that were worth it.
Then a little flash of brilliance happened. I snuck a look at the cool lady near me and saw she needed a few more things. So I asked.
"Do you want to get 5 things and I'll get 5 things and we'll pay together?"
The lightbulb went off in her head too! YES of course!
So how fun is that!?
Just one more good thing to chalk up this weekend. Bleached my kitchen counter grout and cut the backyard grass. Feeling happy all around!
Tomorrow is Earth Day in Action! I'm doing a recycled guitar string bracelet demo at our harbor art gallery. Here is one available for purchase if you want to make that environmental statement on your arm!
Blue and Gold
Recycled guitar string makes this bracelet unusual and interesting. I always get comments when wearing around town. This one is perfect with jeans and everyday with turquoise, black pearl, ivory pearl and gold matte glass.
