In return for donating a bunch of stuff to Savers, I got a coupon for one 30%-off shopping spree. The night DH and I returned to shop, the store was quiet – nothing like during a half-off sale – with plenty of shopping carts, no jostling in the aisles and no waiting for a dressing room!
As always, I headed straight for the craft department where I quickly passed over the few lonely skeins of novelty yarn. But I could not ignore a very pretty lilac chenille.
The bigger the sweater, 58″ bust, the more yarn! I’m expecting to get about one-and-a-half pounds of chenille yarn – $3.50.
I also found a cute little quilted pinwale corduroy vest for myself – $2.80
and a coordinating scarf – $2.10.
What do you think? Is this type of scarf, loosely woven cotton with fine silver metallic threads, passé?
I like the colors so much, I really don’t care. A bonus, it also looks good with both sides of my old reversible down vest! (also from Savers)
DH was looking for short-sleeved summer shirts to wear to work.
Woolrich, New With Tags
– Perhaps a Father’s Day gift gone wrong? – $5.60. On the Woolrich website, shirts with the same style # are close-out priced at $29.00, It’s painful to know there are people who paid that much, let alone the full retail of $45! ouch.
After thirty-some years, DH is so used to my crafty adventures, he hardly raised an eyebrow when I added my last find, a 27″ diameter Hula Hoop, to our cart. – $1.40.
I don’t want to ruin the surprise by telling you my plans for it. All I’ll say for now is that the project will involve crochet.
