This is my first time to participate in Kelli's Show & Tell Friday, although I've enjoyed reading others' posts for a while now. I went shopping at Michaels earlier this week, and I decided to wait till today to show you what I found so I could join in.
I had been in the Michaels closest to me several times, and they had had a sign on the door for a couple of day saying that all fall floral arrangements were 90% off, but I couldn't find any of them. I also had a 50% off coupon that was burning a hole in my pocket, and the thing I wanted to buy wasn't in stock at my store. So I went to the one in the next town over. I not only found the item I'd been looking for, I also found some fall arrangements on sale.
Here's the thing I'd been looking for - a scalloped square punch to use in cardmaking; I used my 50% off coupon on that. I also found some Martha Stewart ribbon on clearance, originally $4.99 each, marked down to $1.49 each. There were also some packs of Thanksgiving stickers at 90% off - they were a whopping 49 cents a pack!
This is my prize, though. This wreath was marked $99.99. It was on clearance at 90% off, so I paid $9.99 for it. The first picture is just to show you how big this wreath is, and the second one shows it hanging over my fireplace. I've always wanted a huge wreath over the fireplace! Praise the Lord for good deals on things that aren't necessities, but are nice to have - and I paid for all of these with money I earned through my Etsy shop. That fireplace mantel looks a little bare - I did fill it in a bit more later!
