Exciting deals!

Jon and I finally got away for a much needed weekend (the first time this summer). We went up to Perham, to my grandmas/our cabin. We just relaxed. We went to a couple of garage sales, I found a couple of really cool things (shown below). But my best find was 3 Lemon Lime Hostas (I am such a hosta geek). I am trying to establish a new shade garden on the north side of the house (I'll get some pictures taken soon). I got them at a garage sale for $2.00 each. The local nursery had them for $12.00! Such a find (thanks to Dad for finding the sale).

Finds: Vintage Halloween paper decorations (cats have flocking), tarnished tinsel garland, grey bobby pins, casserole dish holder, strawberries, chalkware rabbit, plastic pink hair clips, Fire King bowl, small drawer and farm animals (I only keep the cows from these sets).

I also went up to St.Cloud to get some wedding shopping done with Melissa (the bride) I needed to get my shoes and Jon his shirt and tie to coordinate with my dress. Found my shoes at Sears (on sale) and found Jon's shirt and tie at JC Penney. I just HAD TO stop at the local craft store. This place has an AMAZING scrapbooking/stamping section. I have to stop every time I go up there. Poor Melissa, she has NO interest, but tags a long anyhow. I also stopped at a target to get a few things and they had A LOT of their scrapbooking things on clearance. I got some brads, stamps and paper for 50% off.
Here's what I got:

I used a Michaels 50% off coupon to get this great stamp set from Unity. You can only get this set in stores (not available online). The regular price was $44.95, I'm so glad I saved my coupon for it.

They had Smooch on sale for $2.99, I should have gotten more.

Awesome clearance of these great Fancy Pants Design pins! yes, $2.00 each. I got one of each.

These are my great Target finds. All 50% off.

And I ordered this from Addicted to, they had a coupon for 50% off one item.

Those were my fun finds! I hope every one had a wonderful holiday weekend. Off to the State Fair tomorrow-last day :(
