My find of the day jumped out at me shortly after that. It was actually found at a shop that I normally wouldn't look twice at. It was a 'paint it all turquoise' type of store. Not my bag. But this beautiful little chair was sitting on the sidewalk, just calling my name. The tag read a price that I wasn't ready to pay and that's when I saw the half off mark. This was a good start. Inside I went, offering a little less and to my delight, they accepted my offer! Into the back of my car this guy went and it's been getting so much love ever since. I'm thinking we'll get it recovered in the near future. Time will tell!
I only had one *weird* moment with a vendor trying to swindle and talk down to me. Long story short, I got him down from $30 to $3 on some fabric, schooled him on the power of being a woman, and reminded him that being a creep gets you no fans - all with an audience. Thankyouverymuch
That's it! I'm thrilled with my finds, thrilled with what I spent, and thrilled with making myself go on a solo adventure. I should really do it more often. Ya hear that, self?
