Thrifty Thursday

As noted in Monday's blog, Adriana and I were in the city last Saturday and visited our favorite exclusive French shop "La maison de la Village des Valeurs". Il a été magnifique, mes petits chéris!!
I had a coupon for February which enabled me to receive one free item after I'd purchased 3 at the regular price. So, here's my loot from my wonderful shopping trip.

This gorgeous double breasted ('cause I am, ya know) red
jacket was a whopping $17.99 -- but it was worth it!
It's in brand-new condition and fits me
(as Mama would say) "like a smack in the mouth"!


This beautiful shelf was $9.99.*
I found this Christmas teapot for $6.99
(and Christmas tea taste better in a Christmas pot, you know!).*

And here's my freebee -- a beautiful crystal candy dish (avec couvercle, tu ne sais pas!) Original Price $6.99*


Yup! It's not enough fun to shop; nor is it enough to shop discount or thrift; but shopping and getting something for free ............... now that's good enough!



Please sir!

I want some more!

Free shopping that is!!!
