It's all in a day of shopping

So you all know the blacksmith has been gone all week on a hunting trip. Today was my shopping day. Won't you ride along with me?

 First it was a tag sale where I scored two purses and hat. Total spent $6.00.

At the second tag sale, I found nothing I needed.

A quick trip to the pharmacy. Score one expensive prescription.

A block away, J C Penney, score two pairs of pants, total spent $22.84, total saved $56.80 Need I say, I love coupons!

 I never made it past the cash register at Kohl's, I only stopped for a gift card.

My choice for fabric today was Hobby Lobby.

This soft corduroy will be a jumper for Miss Elizabeth.

These pink and greys will be a baby quilt for a co-worker.

Goodwill, I made a drop off donation of clothing, bought nothing.

Across the street, I dropped off my glass bottles.

Across another street, I dropped off my necklace for repairs at Blue Diamond.

New junk store in town. I won't make the mistake of stopping there again!

One of my favorite antique shops, however I scored nothing today.

Calvary gifts a very nice re-sell it shop run by the church ladies. 

There I scored these flip flops for my sister who loves dragon flies. Cost $1.00.  I also bought a beautiful cobalt blue vase, I tried 3 times to get a good picture of it. Pictures just don't do it justice. You are just going to have to take my word, it was $6 well spent. I also got the blacksmith a nice Winchester camouflage shirt for 50 cents. 

Tennyson's furniture, there I was pricing a TV stand to hold the DVR, satellite receiver etc.

Another junk shop. Today I found nothing.

Menard's, whew, are you getting tired yet?  I am! Here I purchased several items with a total of $11 rebates.

Last stop, Habitat. I am looking for an old fashioned kitchen sink with the drain boards. No luck today.  I then headed home for a couple of hours.

At five o'clock it was back to town.

It was dinner with my daughter in law and grand daughter at Madison's restaurant. Or as the grand daughter calls it - Madison's house.

After dinner we decided to see a movie. We saw "The Help". What a great movie!

Last stop at 9:15, was for milk and donuts!  After all I need to refuel from all my shopping. Tomorrow is another day!

Whew! That's more shopping than I do in a year! It sounds like you found a lot of good stuff.

I have an animal purse in that exact same print.

I love those kinds of shopping trips! The kind where hubby would give out about two hours into the adventure so you either have to go alone or with a girlfriend!

I went to "The Help" last week. Wasn't it fantastic? I really loved it....such
beautiful relationships on so many different levels. So, the other night I put it on my Nook so I can read it too.

Thanks for sharing your day. Good finds! I love the Lob but the nearest one to me is an hour away so when I go I have to make it count. :) I'm going to see the Help movie this afternoon and can't wait. I haven't been to a movie at a theater in forever.

Thank you for sharing your day with us. I have similar shopping days myself...both with and without hubby.

I love your fabric choices! And I'm looking forward to seeing The Help when it comes out for rental. I loved the book!

I didn't count the stops but what an amazing day! Those are the best trips to town. You do have a way of picking out fabric, can't wait to see the quilt you make. It's going to look awesome. I'm still looking for the right purse, can you believe it. How fussy can a girl be. Good job girl.

Gad, what a FULL day, no doubt you slept well last night.

That was a busy shopping trip, I'm wore out just reading about it. :-)

Wow, Patti. I suddenly feel. tired :) You really made the rounds and made some excellent selective shopping choices. Is that fabric Michael Miller? It looks like an MM knit I have... and made a scarf for fiddler's gf. I ♥ Menards (don't tell PW). Woot! You did great!! -T

Good Lord, no wonder you are so skinny. I love Madison's. My favorite is the burnt sandwich! YUM! Just checking in to say hi.
Take Care!

Wow! How did you manage to do all that in one day?! I wish I had your energy! The fabrics are so pretty.

Well you wore me out : ) Looks like you had fun-and I can't wait to see the movie-the book was great!

I'm definitely worn out. I've had days like that... I looked at that same material at Hobby Lobby last week. I believe the bolts of material I bought from was on the next rack over.

I love JCPenney and Kohl's coupons. I love Menards' rebates. Thanks for the warning about the junk shop!
