"Show and Tell Friday!"
Welcome to “Show and Tell Friday!” Do you have something special to share with us? It could be a trinket from grade school, a piece of jewelry, or a treasured collection. Look around your home for something to share; dig through those boxes in your closet if you have to! Share photos and the story that goes with your special item.
As you can see, there is a new picture for "Show and Tell Friday"! Please go HERE for the picture code to copy and paste into your post!
We went to the resale store yesterday to look for treasures, here are a few things we found...
I've been needing a new basket for my eggs and found this sturdy metal one. I got it for $1.00.
While taking this picture I noticed the apple design on the basket. That is really going to bug me now! LOL
Next, Grace found these cute ice cream sundae dishes. They were $1.00 each.
As with all new dishes, I recommend trying them out as soon as possible. ;0)
Here was our best find of the day. Grace was on a roll and spotted this doll desk on the side of an aisle. She said it was the American Girl Samantha's desk. I wasn't sure, but it was cute and the price was good.
We looked it up online when we got home and sure enough it is Samantha's desk! It retails for $68.00. We got it for $5.19!! This is something we would have never payed full price for, so it was a nice surprise!
Thank you for looking at my show and tell!
