Instead I went out. I sort of had a bit of a reason, you see there's a Barbie item I've been wanting for weeks now from a local Antique store and due to several issues I've been forced to put off getting it. I actually decided to not get it since money's a bit tight right now and I really didn't need it, I just wanted it. So when asked if I wanted to go out, I originally said no, and explained that I didn't want the item anymore. But then I got pressured into going.... and I cracked, pretty quickly too. Apparently money isn't as tight as I thought, so we could splurge a tiny bit.
That wasn't the only Easter decorations I found. I also found an entire bag full of vintage decorations. I think most of it dates from the 70's, but I think I saw some newer and later things too. Several things ended up on my bookshelf as Easter decorations, but several things did not. You'll get to see the stuff I'm keeping on Easter, but you can see the rest of it now. I offered what I didn't want to one of my Flickr friends. The three fuzzy chicks and the duck with crazy eyes will be eventually headed to Texas. I've already taken that grade school rabbit project down to his parts.
I paid two dollars for all that and more, not a bad shopping trip there at all.
I went to the Goodwill and Salvation Army, but didn't find anything I wanted. I really didn't want to go, at that point I just wanted to go home and deal with my disappointment in private.
*UPDATE* I contacted the owner of the store on their Facebook asking if the accessories had sold. They got back to me, apparently they had not sold, they just weren't on display at that time. The next time I'm planning on going there they said to contact them and they would bring them out for me. So there's still hope I can get what I want. I'll keep you updated.
