My "dearly-beloved" loves to find little out of the way shops that require a sense of adventure, an undauntable drive for a bargain, and a bar of soap when you're finished. I was in on the excitement the other day.
It was my second visit to this shop. The first time, I talked myself out of a couple of things. I regretted those decisions as soon as I got home and determined that, if I visited again, I would buy anything I wanted (I am a very discriminating shopper) that was cheap and unique. Of course, the things I saved for "next time" last time, were gone, so I made sure I looked in, under... all the preposition words!... everything that I could reach.
I found something I love. It was tarnished and dirty and unusual... and cheap! I grabbed it and never let go. Want to see?
All this beauty for only..... $3 and some elbow grease! I can't wait for Thanksgiving, our church Christmas Tea, our family Christmas, anything!
I can't wait to see what I find on the next visit.
For the Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but God looketh on the heart. I Samuel 16:7
