DESTASH HAUL

Well... yesterday was a BIG day...
it was one of the biggest destash garage sales of the year. 
The stars must have been in alignment because hubby actualy had the day off too.  LOL  That meant he could come with me and help me find some treasures.  He's a very good scout for me and knows my style and likes pretty well.  Never fails he always seems to find something for himself too - BONUS!  : ) 

WOO HOO!



That's ME doin' the happy dance!

Hubby and I got an early start & left without breakie even just to be there as it was starting @ 10:30 am.  The tables were already buzzing with 'early bird' shoppers scoring deals.  Hubby and I had our duplicate lists in hand and parted to scour the tables and see what we could find. 

Not too shabby... 

Hubby found a couple of items for himself as looked for things for me too. 

I tried to be a 'good girl' and stick to a budget or @ least within reason of our budget.  LOL 

I think my hubby was impressed that my large tote only had 3 little things in it by the time we met @ the half way point of the tables to show each other what we had found so far.  I found... one  House Mouse stamp and a couple of  SU sentiment stamps by then.  Hubby found an air vac for the computer for $1. so he can clear out any crumbs he might be accused of.   LOL 

In the end I found...

 a pack of
GRAPHIC 45 -
ALICE 'HALLOWEEN IN WONDERLAND'
papers that were on my list.  I didn't pay the $8. on the pad.  I did pay $8. for the pad plus two sets of TIM HOLTZ metal feet for the corners of altered boxes.  I was just looking @ a pack of four the day before in a shop for 6.99.  So the $8 for two sets of feet ( 8 feet in total enough to do two altered boxes ) and the paper was definately a  SCORE!  : )


GRAPHIC 45 ALICE IN WONDERLAND PAPER PAD


TIM HOLTZ METAL FEET FOR ALTERED BOXES


GRAPHIC 45 ALICE PAPER + TH METAL FEET =  $8.

 


3 NEW SU INK PADS = $7.


12 X12 PACK OF DESIGNER PAPERS = $4.


12 X 12 SINGLE SHEETS = $1.20




I was really after the tiny Christmas sentiment
 'Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas!' and the teeny tiny camera in the pack of Studio G pack and the Daisy bucket - 'Peace , Joy & Love to You'  The others were included and bundled in the price.

SMALL CLEAR STAMPS = $1. COMBINED




I had to buy the HOUSE MOUSE stamp LOL  $3. and the damask allover large stamp measures about 6" so will be very useful for cards journaling pages & so much more... Love it!
I really like HIEDE SWAPP clear stamps.  Now I'm kicking myself for not buying more - even ones I have already just to pass them on to a friend or use in a prize package.  Most of what I buy is brand new still in the package and never used.  : )


LARGER STAMPS & SENTIMENT STAMPS = $9. COMBINED



TOTAL HAUL = LESS THAN $30. FOR ALL


woot woot !!
