Yeah!!!

This post is in honor of my friend Erin at The Queen of Clearance!
At work on Sunday, one of our dealers came in and mentioned "The Body Shop" was having a warehouse clearance sale at a local warehouse up the road. It was almost closing time so Gail, our weekend worker, told me to run up and check it out as she did not have her car at work, so she could not leave.
Boy am I glad I did!Here is a picture of my loot!
It was the last day of the sale so everything was 50% off!! See this lamp oil set? $25.00 at the store....guess how much I paid for it?
$1.50! (I got 5) See these bath salts and oils? $8 to $15.00 normally!
$.50!!!I got lipsticks, lip glosses, eye liners, shower gels, oils, bubble baths, perfumes, nail polishes, nail files, oil diffusers...too much to mention!!
Look at my receipt! $33.67 for about $400.00 worth of stuff. Tons of presents
(for family that does not read my blog! hahaha!) Tons of goodies to add into giveaways or swaps! I am so excited!
What deals have you found lately??

Don't you just love it when you find a great sale? You made a killing at that sale!!! I had a great day today. I finally stopped and checked out a shop today that I keep driving by and thinking, "I should stop there." (Don't we all do that?) Anyway, I found the most delightful consignment!I only bought one metal basket-y item, but I plan on returning when I have time to poke around!

Wow, I'll say you scored! You found some great bargains. Is this an early start to your Christmas shopping? It sounds like you had a great time, too bad Erin couldn't make it. Maybe you could sneak her some treats!

Wish I'd known about this great sale - you certainly made out like a bandit Jenny!

Did I ever tell you I tried to buy the Raleigh franchise when I heard The Body Shop was coming to the USA?

I completed all the apps. etc. and remember they asked the most peculiar questions, like "How would you like to die?" Weird huh?

Of course I was short a few hundred thousand bucks anyway, so told the fabulous, sadly now departed founder, Anita Roddick, I'd just keep shopping with whoever got the store - it was two former IBM women who must have saved their paychecks for a long time!

Up until they opened here I used to go home and fill an empty suitcase with their products and lug it back across the pond! Of course I was so much younger then, and the airlines so much more generous with the baggage allowance.

Great buys Jenny. Good for you. Thank you for the heads up on the bear buttons. I will keep them safe. I love the pin up girls in your posts. A long time ago i saved a pinup of a girl in a pink outfit from someone's blog and then could not find it again. I am betting now it was here. I am going to have a look around ...
