March Bargains

Today I went bargain hunting in two places in Rocky Mount—the Franklin County Library's used book sale and Purrfect Treasures. At the library sale, I bought all these books for a total of $3.50— a pretty good bargain.



After leaving the library, I went up Route 220 to Purrfect Treasures, the fundraising store for Franklin County Humane Society. Purrfect Treasures always has some neat stuff. But would I find anything I would like?

Turns out I did. I found a pot and a pin. The flower pot ($1.50) was kind of heavy. The pin ($1.00) was another "House Pin" by Lucinda. I'd bought one of Lucinda's pins last month at the Westlake Goodwill and knew that the $1 price was a great bargain.


The back of the pot had a number. I don't know what this means. It's hard to see, but the Lucinda tag is on the back of the pin.


My best buy, though a lot more than what I'd intended to spend, was in the downstairs room at Purrfect Treasures. It was a big metal horse head that had been reduced to $30. I really liked it because it reminded me of War Horse, the movie I'd seen last month. The name on the base was Carolyn Kinder.


I had to have it. I have no idea where I'll put it. But it can't sit in this living room chair forever.
