All for a nickel

Well, I didn't want to be rude and question their pricing strategies, so I happily paid my 5 cents for this coin purse full of foreign coins. I could probably spring for a candy bar or a piece of gum in countries all over the world - Canada, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Columbia, Singapore, Mexico . . .

Somehow, I ended up spending over $80 at this particular sale. The rest of it wasn't priced as odd, and I found some nice things; most of which is going to my booths in Corpus Christi. The most expensive piece was a cute little oak dresser with a serpentine front. I plan on showing that to you later. I will be painting it and want to show you a before and after. I just couldn't leave without it.

A nickel! ha! You know it's wrong to paint oak, right? Something in the antique book of commandments or something, thou shalt not paint oak. (but if you do, don't tell Mindy!) haaaaaa! ~Mindy

It's okay, Mindy. It's already been painted but I don't like their color choice. Feel better? LOL

Hi Teresa-
Since I was born in Kingsville, and all of my relatives were from Kingsville- we may know each other!

Thank you for stopping by my blog-
Who knows why things get priced the way they do.

Where do you like to shop in Kingsville?

Wow, you find the neatest stuff. I used to go shopping to fleas markets and sales all the time, but haven't done much of that lately. Every time I see your blog it makes me want to get back into that again. Sounds like so much fun!!!!
