Bargain Days

What's there to do when you can't work in the garden? Let's go shopping!

Seriously, some of my best bargains came about when I least expected them. This past week I was lucky to come across a whole slew of bargains.

While wandering through the Broadway Mall in Hicksville (home of Billy Joel), I passed a store named 'Tuesday Morning'. I had never heard of this store and was quickly stopped in my tracks when I saw the amount of gardening related items they carried.

Tuesday Morning is not a gardening store, it seems to be an odd-lot type of place with a little of this and a little of that. Obviously their buyer found a lot of gardening containers. Above you can see two iron containers I brought home with me. I can't wait to pack them with some moss, potting soil and then some luscious sempervivum (hens & chicks).

Another great bargain came my way when my package of garden clogs came from

I highly recommend this company, their price for these adorable ladybug clogs was by far the cheapest to be found. With the handling charge, I was able to purchase two pairs of clogs for only $2 more than one single pair costs at the local nursery. Hooray for valley vet!

Oh, now I must make a trip to Tuesday Morning! We have two that I know of in Indy.

First time visit, you have an interesting blog! We used to have a Tuesday Mornings shop around here, but I think they have closed or moved. They always had interesting garden related items. I love those iron containers. They'll look great with some moss in them!

Hi Robin and Carol, thanks for the comments!

We've got lots of rain in the forecast for the next week. Maybe I'll need another trip to Tuesday Morning to keep my spirits up :-)

I got my clogs at Valley Vet, too! I got some navy ones and a pair of green ones with little daisies on them.

Love your ironworks you got at Tuesday Morning! There's one near our daughter's apartment. I'll have to go back there and see what gardening things they have.
