Customer Appreciation Days

Last Thursday at Frenchy's it was ''Bag Day''... all you can stuff in a white plastic grocery bag for $8. We did'nt go because there really isn't anything to go crazy for. Friday it was closed so they could clean up the tables because Saturday and Sunday it's Customer Appreciation Days. This is when they dump goods on the tables every 10 minutes (normally they dump stuff on the tables about once an hour) and it's mostly ''nice'' stuff that they dump every 10 minutes. Hmmmmm, but we did'nt go on these two days either. Why ? Because there are more people then room in the store. There is a line-up outside before the doors open at 8 a.m. Saturday morning.

However, Dave and I dropped in tonight just to see if they left anything ''worthy''. Am I ever happy we stopped. Here is our purchases from tonight : 3 skeins of wool ($1.25 for the three); some kind of table runner (orange on the left) made of linen, a chanting/meditation CD, Dave found two Polo shirts, a fleece hoody, and a black t-shirt...

But the best find for me was a book ''Greeting Cards A to Z and a set DVD/Book on Practical Meditation. And it's not even me that found it... Dave did ! He's the best, always looking out for me.

All for $23.25

joyceann - thanks for leaving a comment. I love receiving comments soooooooo much (almost as much as I love Christmas and everything that goes with it).

I grew up around that old sawmill so every time I go around there I feel like a child again. The river was our swimming hole.

Excellent finds Vickie! I think I am about due for my every-two-months trip to Value Village - they don't seem to have the deals you can get at Frenchy's but it will have to do :)

Kim - you would go crazy at Frenchy's. I love it there so much. I've been to Value Village a couple of times in Halifax. They have nice stuff also.

Great finds Vickie!

I agree with you Kim about Value Village; not as good a deal as Frenchy's.

Hi Vickie , I guess we do have alot in common , the river was were I was taught to swim. My Dad loved boating , camping and fishing. We spent most weekends on the river , lake or at the beach.
Sooo glad I have a pool now , although my Mom still calls it a pond (LOL).

Hello Joyceann - I only swam in a real pool at around 12 years old. Before that, it was the "pond" at the mill. My father was an avid fly fisher and I was with him most of the time he went fishing.
