An Upscale Thrift Store

 
I stopped at a new thrift store yesterday while I was out running errands.
It was run by The Ohio Cancer Society and it was quite a surprise.
Everything in the store was very nice and a bit on the pricey side
for a thrift store.  Not the bargain prices you'll find at Goodwill.
I heard a sales woman telling someone it is an upscale thrift store.
That explained a lot. They even had set up a chocolate fondue fountain
and lots of yummy Valentine treats for the customers.
I was about to leave when I found this lovely tulip arrangement.
And the price was right ~ it was only $15.


It was missing a few tulips, like someone had come along and
snippped them off.  But that didn't matter to me ~ I loved
it at first sight.

So I snatched it right up before anyone else could.  The
sales lady said it had just come in that day and I
felt blessed that it was going home with me.
The tulips were in a beautiful pot with ivy at the base. 


 On the way home, I stopped at Michael's and picked up new tulips
to replace the missing ones and the squiggly sticky thing.  I
stuck them in and it was perfect ~ well, maybe a little large
for my small dining room table, but I love the way it commands
attention when you walk through the room.


And I love the way it makes the whole room seem like 
spring has come.
