On to the Goodwill finds! First, I found these cloths for my niece and the Little Monkey. At $2 each, they are not the best deal ever, but still a good deal. All are either Gap or Old Navy. Not bad, definitely better than full price! Oh, and this picture, I know, I know, Sis is thinking "oh no, that looks like it belongs in Grandma's house!" Not to worry, I bought it for the frame. I'm thinking I might use it in my master bath, but not sure, it will go somewhere, it will be repainted, and it will look awesome! After all, it was only a buck!
Next, my second favorite find of the day! This is a 2 quart ice cream maker!
I have been looking for one all summer, seriously, all summer. We love home made ice cream, but our White Mountain churn makes nearly 5 quarts, which is great when you have company, not so great when there are just 3 of us. Also, Little Monkey has some issues with lactose, so we like to use lactose free milk to make ice cream. That makes an already expensive treat even more expensive! This way, it won't be as expensive. It takes less ingredients, only about one ice box full of ice so I don't have to buy ice, and I can do it when ever I want! I paid $3.95 for this gem! They retail for about $25 when you can find them. This particular brand does not require that you put the container in the freezer ahead of time, which is nice, cause I don't have room! I found a bunch of these on ebay, they were all used and selling for $25 plus $15 shipping!! Crazy!
Here is the peach ice cream we made with the new machine last night. Yummy!
Note to self, next time don't let Little Monkey have home made ice cream unsupervised! After she ate all she wanted, she proceeded to dip her hands in the melted stuff and then spread it all over her arms and hands and face like it was lotion. After I got past the initial irritation (cause I knew this would require a bath to clean up, and this would be #2 today) I got the giggles. Hubby just laughed and said it was probably good for her skin (she has excema). She got to play in it for a bit, then got a bath.
Now, for the best buy of the day!! I got this antique hat box, with an antique velvet hat still inside for.......wait for it......$1.95!!!!!
