    I saw a "something" in a local thrift-shop, yesterday. It was in a long grubby, sort of molded carry-bag. Couldn't get carry-bag off to see it's condition, with the arm that has 18 stitches, but I could see it was a patio umbrella. The part I could see looked really good. Got it home, sliced the bag off with knife & lo & behold the umbrella was just like new! Very cute with rainbow stripes. A real find at $3.99!.

    A walking bargain magnet, we are still reeling over the plant haul. An umbrella? Wow, great price.

    I am always on the prowl for a bargain! Guess it's because my parents were antique dealers & I learned early to always keep eyes open.... you find deals in the most unlikely places.
