After a fashion, that is! Our local garden centre has a stunning Christmas display every year, and alongside all the Seasonal stuff, there are usually some lovely household bits and pieces. We go along to see the display (takes about an hour to get around and see everything), and inevitably buy one or two small bits for Christmas; this year's wasa lovely little red plant pot with Happy Christmas written on it, and a wee bird on the rim; at 3.00 it didn't break the bank, and will be put away carefully for future use.
However, what is even better is that after Christmas, all things in teh display are half price :) Big grin..............So, the first outing is part recce to see what I would like when it's reduced in price; mind, you have to get there quite smartish, as lots of folk have now cottoned on to this!! I managed to get the things I had my eye on - the lovely vintage style French magnetic calendar; the antique flower print coasters; the pink floral coaster; the antique style mirror compact - all half price and very very beautiful.
Buying any non-essential is a treat, which is as it should be , but when you get it at half price, the satisfaction is multipiled many times!
