Sister's breakfast Sunday morning at Emily's pancakes house was a surprise for me. I ordered two eggs, pancakes, and bacon, breakfast special # 1 on the menu. When my breakfast order arrived the plate had four eggs over easy looking at me, FOUR EGGS! "I ordered special #1 with two eggs," I explained. Well, here is the scoop, Emily's is owned by a Greek family, and it is their practice to double your egg order for good luck. I was full until dinner time.
While waiting for my breakfast to arrive I called my Illinois niece and congratulated her about her GW find, a George Foreman grill for $3.00. She has a college aged son that will enjoy this. In jest, I asked her if she wanted to shop at the GW with us that morning. My sweet sister missed the kidding tone in my voice so after breakfast off we went to one of our favorite GW's.
I'm having a hard time understanding the price system that Goodwill has, some items are overpriced and some items are extremely reasonable. While shopping the toy section, I found four Melissa & Doug wood handle puzzles marked 99¢ each, while the off brand wooden puzzle was marked $1.99.
Here, are the treasures that I found while thrifting...
This charming little girl captured my heart.
Where is she going with her little companion?
This small 4.5 X 5 inch framed beauty will
find a home in one of my nooks or cranny.
Cost of this precious picture, 49¢.
This Greek girl has an embroidered dress, with Rhodian
deer atop the columns that protect Mandraki harbor
entrance, on the Greek island of Rhodes in the background.
Cost of postcard 99¢
I wonder if the person who bought this postcard forgot
to send it or just a lovely momento from their trip?
Looking forward to see what everyone else found this week.
