Wednesday, 3, 29, 2017- Today I went to a thrift shop with some friends. I found a couple of really sweet posters of places I’ve been. I wanted to get them, but I also wanted a good deal.
I took them to the counter and asked to buy them for 50¢ a piece.
She asked $1.00 each.
I offered 75¢ each.
She straightened her glasses on her nose, clicked her tongue and nodded. “No, I can’t sell them for that. But I’m willing to let you take them both for $1.50.”
So I walked away with the posters for 75¢ a piece.
As I walked out the door I heard a soft voice behind me say, “oh wait…” followed by the patter of a palm slapping a forehead.
By the way, I didn’t just use any old rocks to hold these down. I think I found some geodes. Guess who’s doing some geode smashing later?
