Hi my friends. Just wondering? Has anyone ever told you that you could be a professional shopper?
Not sure if there really is such a thing, but if anyone out there is hiring, I’m in!
The funniest thing happened to me yesterday. Every time I think about it, a smile appears on my face.
I met up with my sister, Jeanne to look at lights, paint chips, etc. After spending a couple of hours together we parted ways. On my way to meet hubby to catch a movie I decided that I would swing by our local D.I. (thrift store).
After snatching up some fun goodies I got in line to pay. the woman behind me first spotted this sweet little table that I had in the top of my cart. wondering if it really is a piano bench, but it seems a little high.
She said, “that is such a neat table”. I replied, “Isn’t it cute? Especially after I give her a coat of paint.” She then proceeded to look into my cart. She replied, “Oh my, you should be a professional shopper.” “You found all the best things”. Like I said, not sure if there’s such a profession, but what a dream job that would be. I’m sure if you asked my hubby he would say that I am already a professional shopper. But for some uncanny reason I don’t get paid.
Now, I know that you are just dying to see ‘all the best things’!
The first thing I ran across were these sweet blue and white dishes. They say Pier 1 made in Italy on the back. Just a few, (2 plates, 1 salad plate, and 1 bowl) but a cute addition to my soon to be farmhouse (basement) kitchen.
Then I checked out the collectibles. Nothing there so I thought I was walking away with just those. Heading up another isle I spied these white ironstone mugs. Cute, cute with the blue & white!
And look what jumped out at me from an end cap. Sweet saucers. I love mismatched dishes. Also found this little wooden trivet and another old rolling pin to add to my collection.
Then I headed out to the area called, ‘the yard’. Spied the sweet table. How could I go home without it?
All in all it was a fun shopping day. Professional or not! Hee-hee!
Oh, and I forgot to mention. All those goodies only set me back $27. That didn’t include the tray. I already had that. Thought if I was going to be a professional shopper that I had better be a professional stager. lol!
Just remember, if you are ever in need of a professional shopper, I’m your gal!
