A lovely day of shopping

I am so very happy I met Julie and Heather for a fun shopping day today. We started out at Stampington's parking lot sale. It wasn't as fabulous as we hoped, but it was good. Here's my loot.

Then Julie whisked us away for a tour of the area. Our first stop was my favorite because I got to see all the wonderful luggage art in real life. It's truly amazing in person-so much depth in every piece. She took us to Michael's and I have to tell you it was like a dream. All this stuff was on clearance and then 90% off of the clearance price. It was nearly free. I spent more on the toll roads today than I did there. This is only part of what I bought, because I already dropped off mom's loot at her house. Here is the loot I got for $6.18.


And we had a yummy lunch and a stop at the Tall Mouse. Thanks for an amazing day, Julie. The guys came home from their camping trip early and were here when I got home. They think the fish count was around 47 trout. They only kept what they could eat, the rest were released.. Holy cow....they said it was the best camping trip ever. I'm glad they are home and so glad I had the best shopping day ever, too! Great to catch up with you Heather and Julie :)

Super fun day Tami. And, thanks so much for the magazines. My sister and I are studying them. I think that we are going to be subscribing soon.

My niece and sister both loved all their loot. I'm looking at the pictures of your stuff wondering why I didn't get more stuff. LOL.
