What Will A Dollar Buy You These Days ???????

Well usually not much, however.......................

On my last visit to a local antique mall, this is what a dollar bought me.......

Make that a dollar and seven cents if you add the sales tax...

A pretty vintage card box that I found tucked behind some other items on a shelf in the antique mall. The box was empty, but I didn't care. It is so pretty all by itself and with it costing only $1.00, I couldn't resist. Heck, I pay more for a bottle of pop out of the vending machine at work than I did for this lovely little box.

I just love finding little bargains like these don't you?

Have you found any cheap treasures for yourself lately?

In the movie "Animal Crackers", Groucho Marx has a whole conversation about how "a nickel today isn't what it used to be"!

That box is really sweet, and for just a dollar, who in their right mind would pass it up...not me! Great little piece to put in a sweet vignette :)

Warmest hugs, Brenda
