Weekend thrifty find: Flashy-flowery purse from Hawaii (?)
There was an estate sale in La Crosse over the weekend, and Britta is working on furnishing her unfurnished apartment for next school year, so we zoomed up there to take a look. She found a pretty set of bookshelves for $24. I found a couple of odds and ends, including this little box style handbag. The price tag said "Hawaii". The yellow twine is icky but I love the raffia flowers. It was $3. I also bought a whisk broom for 50 cents. We have one, but when we need it for camping, it's on its hook on the back porch, and when we need it on the back porch, it's packed away somewhere in the camping gear. So now one can be in each place.
Lil Miss A fell madly in love with a NordicTrack exercise machine out in the garage, for sale for $20. I would not let her buy it, not even with her "own money." I do not want a NordicTrack in my house. Too huge. She was pretty upset with me, letting such an obviously awesome deal pass us by.
