striking out.

Sometimes the game and craft of seeking out steals and deals has its aches and pains.




Three great gold retro chrome rimmed tables. That’s three people! Any of which would be perfect for entering an aqua kitchen after rounding the corner of my gold living room. As we were junking we stumbled upon each of them within the same hour in the Saint Paul Retro Loop. None of which I went home with. Think recent table drama and that whole trying to spend less bit I am working on – that might equal not getting things now and then. But it might also mean that is when I happen to run into a treasure – (or three!). Suffering sabatash.




Julie isn’t the only one to sympathize with from this day’s adventures. Pink versus Gold. With you my friend.

Three strikes and I’m out.

I prefer to strike gold. Really I do.

    Painful. Waaaah. No fair! I’m with you, sister!!

    I mean seriously. THREE GOLD TABLES in three different stores in ONE DAY? It’s a conspiracy.

    Here’s to a gold rush somewhere in the near future.

    It was actually just mean. Plus the first was proven to be a steel. Ugh. Good job walking away, 3 times!!!
