Bargain Finds When You Least Expect It

Last Saturday was my thrift-hunting-day and boy, I was thrilled. I went alone and visited 3 different thrift shops in my area. The sun was mad outside and despite my white shirt and denim shorts outfit, I thought I was gonna faint while walking downtown. Thank goodness the thrift shops I came to were air-conditioned! Whew! At least, I had fun digging for clothes!☺

After my much anticipated retail therapy, I decided to go home BUT much to my disappointment, it is still glaring HOT outside. I was already wearing black sun glasses but I was still squinting. Oh dear! I looked at my left and saw this fun-looking store that was air-conditioned, too. It's actually an everything-100-peso store. But once I got inside, I discovered that they also carried items that are priced at 50 pesos. They had RTWs, sunglasses, slippers, cheap flats, belts, accessories and a lot more. What caught my attention were these babies:

At first glance, I really thought they were the plastic, silver plated type of rings. That was because I saw the 50-peso price tag beside it. :D So I asked one of the saleslady if I could take a look and she pulled out boxes of these assorted rings. I was surprised to discover that they were pretty heavy, definitely made of pure metal. And for only 50 pesos! So I chose the ones I liked and ended up purchasing these 4. :)

While I was paying, the cashier asked me if I wanted it to come in individual boxes. She probably thought I was gonna give it away as gifts because the boxes looked like little Christmas gift boxes. Hahaha. I agreed though. I might be able to use the boxes for actual gifts this holiday. :D

My stubby fingers! LOL 

And hairy, too! Haha!

Hope all is well. :D

Few more days before Christmas! Are you excited. I sure am. ☺☺☺
