Man everyone has great customer service...well not Sears but everyone else!

A couple of weeks ago the Delta faucet at my parent's house went kaput. I couldn't return it to Home Depot because I didn't have a receipt or box so I shipped it back to Delta. 

Check out this brand new faucet they sent back! Its the upgrade to the previous faucet with plastic components where the metal ones had rusted out in the old one.

I admit $150 is a lot for a faucet - especially since it went kaput within five years of installation but with this type of customer service who cares!?

Now Sears could take a page from their book - they've been jerking my husband around with a simple $20 return for weeks.

Vases were a Dime so....

Mugs and vases .10 each

This pretty little one is a Lefty's mug so I'm going to give it to my friend who enjoys warm beverages.

.50 EACH!

They're Numis from CB2 and I know I posted a picture of a bunch of them in front of a grey wall about 5-6 years ago but now I can't find it. I probably love clear glass and candle holders more than I should.

.10 each Pier 1 Candle holders
I have a third one of these upstairs so maybe I can list them all together

 .50 Christmas magnets so my nieces can decorate the fridge

and some stuff for the outdoors
I am donating our old boxes of Christmas cards because 20 is more than we need and everyone we like already received those cards. I'll use a couple from here and donate them back again.

I am happily linked up to Vintage Charm:

What it Sold for: Prepping for the Rush

On-line sales generally take an upswing during this time of year so I am trying to pin daily and list more. Story of an e-Bayer - right?

Sold for $15
I originally bought these to keep but it turns out I don't make pie

Sold for $10 after upgrading to the blue depression ones last year. I think they were originally $2 5-6 years ago

Sold for $9 in about a week

Sold for $15 after many months
These old vintage kitchen things take forever to sell

Paid .25, sold for $6

Paid .75, sold for $10

Was this .50 or .75? Either way it sold for $20 cause owls are still cool

Paid $1, sold for $8 because everyone else has theirs on eBay too. Apparently no one is having Safari themed dinner parties anymore.

How did you do? Are you listing more than me?

Happy Halloween!

I probably love Halloween more than I should. This year I went as Elsa, our nieces as Elsa and Anna and my husband was Olaf:

Hysterically enough Taylor Swift wore the same thing:

He claims he always knew he and TS would wear the same outfit one day.

Here a Dime, there a Dime

The little thrift store is so overcrowded we are running a monthlong decluttering sale. Candles, books, mugs, nonsense, nonsense, nonsense for a dime!

Wall hook - $2
Candle holders - $2
Books - .10 each

I always think this stuff is a good idea. Now I just need somewhere to hang our hooks...

I gifted the lawnscaping book to my husband and even left it on his night stand. He claims its not his but possession is 9/10s of the law, says rhetoric.

Don't you love this?

Someone started to cut out one doll extremely poorly. Those are sub-kindergarten skills right there.

I used to play with paper dolls as a kid but  they were never this fashionable.
