Now there was a time when there were a lot of things you could not get in Canada, such as M&M's and Lays sour cream and onion chips! Can you believe it? Now we have a lot more selection here (including ketchup chips and dill pickle chips, which I believe are exclusively Canadian), but still, the selection is never as plentiful as that of our neighbours to the south, so it's always a fun day and certainly a nice change from the routine.
So on this latest spree, I dragged my family to Hobby Lobby (they were very patient, I must admit.) We have a Michael's near us, but Hobby Lobby has totally different stuff.
Like these fabrics for example.
Could you just die? Eiffel Towers, crowns, stamps, French writing and toile.
This one's my favourite!
They were all about $8.99 a yard, already a pretty good price, but with our 40% coupons, these were a steal! These will be great for pillows and to recover chairs.
I bought a few wood appliques:
And then, look at all these knobs!
Just my luck, they were all on sale at 50% off!!! I went a little crazy, I must admit, but I'm sure I will use them all eventually.
Beautiful , sparkling glass!
I really, really love these!!
We carried on to Walden Galleria where a lot of clothes was half-price. Again, great selection and we barely even had time to look at everything, there was so much. (We'll just have to go back soon!)
And the last thrill of the day? Having the customs officer wave us through without having to pay taxes or duties, even though we declared everything. (It's usually the luck of the draw.) Woohoo, thank you officer!
Have a great week-end!
