|Three Avon Spun Glass Ornaments....$1|
|two Christmas tins...10 cents each|
Tennis balls....50 cents
I was inspired to buy the tennis balls by a tip my sister gave me last week. Instead of taking down-filled duvets to the dry-cleaner, wash them in the washing machine, and add the tennis balls to fluff the duvets while in the dryer.
I also found the same 1980s immersion blender that I had until last year!
I paid $5 for it, but know from experience it is worth it. We bought the same one for my mom in the early 80s, and I took it with me when I moved out. So I know that it can last for 30 years. Plus, it wasn't even the motor that burned out; the wand fell apart. I think its longevity came from the fact that it was made in France, prior to planned obsolescence being common.
Totally unused! Now I can blend soups in the pot again! I love how it is called the 'Robot Marie' I suppose this was a high tech name for the time. Moulinex still sells it under that name. The next time I am in a department store, I am going to check if it is still made in France.
I also couldn't resist these decals for 5 cents.
They are reproductions. I have no idea what to do with them, yet, but something may come to mind soon.
I also took home a huge free box of Christmas stuff. Check back later this week to see what was in it.
