not a total waste

If you were with me last summer, you might remember when I made the redneck wine glasses. After making those I sold a ton of them. It's been a while but I got another order for 16 of them but the want 2 of them with handles on them. 
I headed out Saturday morning in search of mason jars with handles and do you know NO ONE has them. I could order them online but won't be able to sell them for the price I quoted them. 
Well heading back home Amanda and I stopped at a yard sale that a woman Amanda works with was having. I got the most amazing deal.  OK so it's Christmas stuff but I don't care.
 Would you care to take a guess at how much I paid for all 4 things in the picture above? Well wait, I also got this basket.


Believe it or not, the lady told me I could have all 4 things in the first picture for $20.00 and she would throw in the basket for free.  When we were looking at the stuff I had said to Amanda that I didn't know if I had enough money on me to get all of them and the lady said "Oh you have enough". They were pricing things to sell.


Duke wanted you to see just how big that basket was. Believe it or not it was actually priced at $1.50

What a deal!!! And to think, Christmas isn't that far away --- what with the way days pass by so quickly. And Duke?----you know we luvya!!

[the google map is cool] and to have a Dollar General so close by, handy for the crafty lady that you are. [pun intended]

Of course that basket is worth $150.00. Just look at the basket's job, holding Duke. What a cute picture. You sure did get a good deal. Have a great week end.

that is SOME DEAL you got there, i was waiting for you to say you found jars with handles.. that boy in the basket is beyond words to describe... triple AAAdorable.

Sandra said...

you could tell the people they can have them for the same price with no handles, but it will cost more to get the handles... i bet they will pay more.

That was some good deal, nice things and the basket looks lovely.

Duni said...

Oh, how adorable! Duke fits right into that basket. And that's an amazing deal :) I love the basket!

I have one of those mason jars with a handle! Love it. Anything with a handle is easier for me to hold. I got it at a yard sale about 10 years ago for a buck.

You got a great deal on those Christmas items and basket. It looks like Mr. Duke heartily approves of the basket, LOL.

You got a good deal indeed. I'm sorry you couldn't find the mason jars though. Bugger.

Have a terrific day. Tell Duke he looks awesome in that basket. :)
