Finally a Sale!

Finally an estate sale!  I was starting to go stir crazy.  Caring Transitions had an estate sale in Huntley.  Today was half price.  I spent a total of $2.50.  I bought a colander for $1 (I am going to plant something in it in the spring) and a Pennsylvania tray for $1.50.  That will go into my mom's mother's day package.  Even though I didn't find a lot, I had a fun time.  I can't wait until there are more sales.

On a side note:  I stopped at the Huntley outlets today and found some good sales at Tommy Hilfiger.  It is worth the trip if you need some winter clothes. 

Since I was in Huntley, I thought why not stop in the Goodwill and Sweet Repeats Thrift store.  I only found a Japanese Pokemon dvd for the boys at the Goodwill for $1.99.  At Sweet Repeats, they were having a clothes bag sale and they were doing a bingo ball game to determine what percentage off you got on your purchase.  I got 10% off.  As I was walking through the store, I spotted milk glass under a silk flower arrangement.  So, I lifted out the flowers and found a wonderful milk glass bowl for $12.  But, since I was getting 10% off, I thought why not.  It is really beautiful and I didn't have anything like it.  I didn't find any chips or cracks either.  I was so excited with this new addition to my milk glass collection.
