|Left owl = $5.00 Right owl = 50¢|
A while back I found a ceramic owl at Goodwill and spray painted it white. Loved the way it looked after a few coats! I only paid $1.99 for it so I considered it a super deal. I decided I wanted 2 more to place on the shelf in the laundry room. A perfect trio. Today I sealed the deal. My first stop was at the Hospice Thrift Store. I had a couple of bags of clothes to donate so I whipped into the parking lot at the back of the store. While waiting for my receipt, I spied the eyes of an owl on a shelf of items to be priced and placed on the shelves in the store. I asked how much it was and the woman said she needed to run to the front of the store to find out. She quickly returned with the owl and a bright green sticker marked 50¢. Holy cow, what a steal! I poured a couple of quarters in her hand and I was outta there. Next stop, Antique Trove. The reason we were going there was so that Nolan could find an "oldie" (that's what he calls an old die cast car.) I knew there had to be an owl in that huge store somewhere--the only thing was that now we were in an antique store and not a *thrift* store so the prices would be higher. I stumbled across a few, but all above $12.00 and after just paying 50¢, I just couldn't go there. I kept looking and lo and behold I found one for $5.00 (more than I had paid for the other two, but not a bad price.) My owl trio is complete-not sure they'll stay in the laundry room, but that's where they'll perch for now.
