We had a visit from some friends from Minnesota Sunday night. It was so good to see some familiar faces in our home! Paula and her husband, Don, have been traveling all over the US throughout February. They stopped in for an overnight visit on their way to Arizona. Here is a picture of Paula and I before they took off the next morning.
We didn't have warm weather for them when they came. It was in the 30's when they left. Hopefully, they will have warmer weather in Phoenix.
I had a fantastic birthday weekend. My birthday was Friday and my husband took the day off work to spend the day with me. He went thrifting with me at the Goodwill Outlet and a garage sale. It turns out he has a good thrifting eye. He picked out a Vintage Cracker Jack Pillow for 25 cents at the garage sale. I sold it on Ebay the next day for $21. Here is a picture of the pillow:
Isnt' it fun? It's gone to a new home now.
The Goodwill Outlet was an experience. I had read about how crazy it can get there. I was too intimidated to try it on my own for the first time. So my husband was a trooper and went along. I knew he would do most anything I wanted on my birthday. At the Outlet they had these huge blue bins on wheels that you literally dig through and find things. There are bins of clothes, bins of books, and bins of random stuff. We couldn't figure out why people were lining up in certain areas. It turns out that every so often they wheel out new blue bins of stuff. When they give the go ahead the people in line run to the bins and grab everything they can. There was a guy that grabbed an armful of shoes. I think he went to the side and looked through them and decided which ones to keep and which ones to put back. We didn't take part in that craziness. We were content to dig through their leftovers. When you are done you bring your stuff up to be weighed and you pay by the pound. I'm planning on cleaning up the stuff I bought and selling them on ebay. That's my new business. I'm having lots of fun with it! There is a ton to learn about what sells and what doesn't but that is all part of the fun.
Here is a picture of the Goodwill Outlet:
When we got home there were some packages at the door. One of the packages had these in it:
It is 50 mini cupcakes. It was packed in thermal packaging and an ice pack. They came from a bakery in New Jersey. They were yummy!
Thanks for stopping by today!
