What do they have in common?

I bought them at the same place? That’s true but that’s not it!

I got them all yesterday...true again!

DSCN2609

They were all the same price? BINGO!

But how much did I pay? (answer at the bottom)

I felt ALL better yesterday so I went to take care of lots of errands and even got all of my hair cut off! lol There was a sidewalk sale at Helping Hands Thrift store in the same strip mall as my Hair Salon, so I ventured down the sidewalk.

It was tempting not to come home with a trunk load of junk! Because....

I’m joining Time Travel Thursday

and Thrifty Things Friday!

and Treasure Hunt Thursday!

and Thursday’s Favorite Things,

AND Kathy’s Home and Garden party!

EVERYTHING was a DIME!

7FLJune

I paid 10 cents each for all of these items!

(I actually gave them a dollar and said to keep the change...but what a deal!)

Do you like to embroidery?

I think I better get busy!

Hello, Diane.

I hope you very well.

I'm sorry for don´t write you before.
I like to embroidery, but I have arthritis and sometimes My hands, arms an another parts of my budy hurt me. I like the color threads.
You've seen my embroidery works in my blog.

Fantastic bargins. Don't you love it when you can make out like a bandit and be helping someone while you're doing it? The floss looks like fun to me.

Mary said...

What a find. I had a similar garage sale find, not a dime. But I stopped as it was starting to rain, so the people said, "What ever you can fit in you car for $5." Wow. My car became packed, fast. Fun.
