I have been so busy with cakes, yard work, and spring cleaning that my Goodwill trips have been less frequent. Although I have been trying to hit yard sales on Saturday when I am out.
I did pop into Value Village last week and found these great urns! They are heavy ceramic urns that have a really neat aged look!
The larger one was priced $2.02.
The smaller one was priced $1.51. BUT it had a chip out of it (which I knew I could just make be in the back of wherever I displayed it). So I found an employee and asked could they adjust the price because of the crack. (I have never tried this at Goodwill, they would probably say “NO”! But I figured I would give it a try here.)
She came back out and said, “Do you want it for 40¢?”
“Ummm.. yes, I will take it! :)”
So I paid $2.42 for both!
So, it just pays to ask if the price can be adjusted (at least at Value Village!) Have you ever gotten anything price adjusted at a thrift store because it was defective?
I already knew what I planned to do with them so stay tuned for I did!
Nifty! There are two Value Villages in either direction of us, but one is about 25 minutes and the other is in a bad area. Wish I could take advantage of their deals. :)ReplyDelete

You should post about your thrifty finds on your blog ;)
