Thrifty NEW Blue Items...GASP!!

Sorry I am posting this so early but, this is the last day of our vistitors being here and I have a feeling that tonight I will be whupped and will forget to post.

Okay, here is going to be some shocking thrifty finds for today are....BRAND SPANKIN' NEW! How insane is that! I went shopping at the Christmas Tree shops a week or so ago and found these two pretties!

As the princess and I were shopping, we were, naturally, checking out the clearance items. When we were looking at the things on one endcap, I saw these two pretty periwinkle blue 8" cake stands. I had seen them before and thought they were pretty and not bad at $3.99 each. Well, they were just sitting on one of the shelves without any clearance stickers on them. I figured that some one probably just dumped them there. but, it never hurts to find out for sure.

I put one in my cart and we headed for the checkout. I told the cashier that this cake stand was on the clearance shelves but not marked. So, if it is regular price I don't want it. So, she checked and a surprised look was on her face. I said, "What?" she told me they were ....are you ready?.....40 cents each!! Woohoo! I told her to ring up two of them and I would run back to get the other one!

So, for .80 cents, these are my pretty thrifty blue finds!

I am joining....

    The Christmas Tree Shops ins one of my favorite stores!!


  16. Wow! Some people sure can find the bargains! Those are just beautiful, Diann. Happy Blue Monday.

  17. They should have just given those to you. In fact at that price, they almost did. The are such a pretty shade of blue.

  18. Wow! If they had ended up at my local SA, they would mark them $8 each, and not mark down until months later when someone had chipped them. Incredible buy. Sometimes new is best.
