$6.00 finds

Do you ever have those days when
you come across stuff that you collect
and you barely have any $$ on you?

I had no intentions of buying anything today,
I don't normally carry cash since
I'm a debit card kind of girl.

But when I came across this vintage
suitcase for $5.00...

and this cool heavy, ornate frame
for $1.00...I did what any normal collector girl would do.

I rummaged through the bottom of my purse looking for cash,
(the store does not accept debit or cc), I looked through
EVERY pocket of my purse and wallet, ran out
to the truck to see if any $$ had
appeared within the last 5 minutes.
Luckily the boys weren't with me or I'd
be asking them for $$! LOL

And as luck would have it I found exactly $6.00!!!
A $5.00 bill was neatly tucked away in my wallet and
a $1.00 was in the truck...Yeaaa for me!

I guess I had tucked away the $5.00 for
emergencies like these... haha

What about you?
Have you ever experienced this?

I am linking up to Nifty Thrifty Tuesday
over at Coastal Charm...since I have something to show..

Have a great week,
Sylvia

Too funny. I can see you running out to your truck to check the cushions. I have had that happen before, but never been lucky enough to not have to run to the ATM. Love the suitcase!

Well, I'd say it was meant to be! I just love it when things like that happen! I found a few goodies today too.
Blessings,

These are such great finds. I probably have $6 worth of change weighing down my purse at all times. lol I know what you mean. I'm terrible about carrying cash. So glad these treasures are yours now.
