Slash sale BONANZA!

I heart art materials. I also hoard them. What I can't do is buy them at full price. This past week my local craft store had a clearance sale on old scrapbooking and other such items. I waited a few days, and found the markdown had gone right to my comfort zone: Everything originally over $5 was now $1, and everything originally under that was down to 25 cents. So here's my haul for that day:

I know it's hard to tell from here just how much stuff I got, but it's a lot. That's a big basket in the photo, and the cache covered my dining table. I added up my total if I had bought everything at full price (yeah, like that would've ever happened!): $187.59! Ready for my grand total? $22.00 even! Yeah, baby! Now that's what I call a sale. Nope, that's what I call a windfall! I can't wait to start in on it. Especially the art dolls!

P.S. I don't always hoard for hoarding's sake. Sometime soon I will be cleaning out a bunch of stuff, bagging it up, and sharing with my arty companions...maybe you! Stay tuned!

Great score Sharon! You talk about hoarding craft supplies like it's a bad thing... Seems like a good thing to me! How else are you going to make great stuff?! :-)
