One: Remember last week when I told you the pillow/cushion sale was that weekend only? Well, the powers that be decided to extend the sale another weekend. So, if you were out of town last weekend and despaired you'd missed out - despair no more! Throw pillows are $10 (normally $15) and cushions are $8 (normally $10). These are high end product from the outdoor furniture showrooms at the Merchandise Mart. Most (all?) are designed to be water resistance (and even if get wet will dry out over time).
Two: Windsor Park Manor - a retirement community just a short distance west of our building (on North Ave. west of Schmale Road) is holding their first ever, open to the general public, furniture, home decor and kitchenware sale on Friday and Saturday (July 21 and 22) from 10 am to 3 pm. I'm assuming there'll be signs to direct you to the "store" but it's in unit A114 in the main building. I'd probably bring cash or a check (not sure if they'd be set up to handle credit or debit card payment - though I could be wrong). 100% of the proceeds will go to their benevolent fund which helps defray the cost of living there for residents who outlive their resources. Tell Lois and Judy I said, "Hi!".
Three: A number of pieces towards the back of the store caught my eye as I was walking through to turn the lights on last night so I made the bold (ha!) decision to start in the back and work forward (I normally do the opposite). So, fasten your seat-belts and let's get this show on the road!
Thanks for stopping by, dear reader! I hope you're staying cool and dry! See you next week!
