Bad Buyer

 I do porch pickup for selling on marketplace. I leave the item on the porch and the buyer leaves the cash where I instructed them to. I have never had an issue until Friday.  

Buyer takes a $10 item and leaves $5. Ok so honest mistake, right? I message her and say what happened.  She apologizes and says she will bring the $5 after work. I did tell her she could return the item and get her money back or bring me the 5.

Anyways, she never shows. She messages me and asks if she can bring the money in the morning.  Fine, she can. That was yesterday and she never came over.  Now I'm really mad and believe she did it on purpose. Guess it's my fault for trusting people.

If she brings me the money, I will delete this post.

Can This Be Saved?

 I saw this fiberglass chair at the thrift store I volunteer at. The manager said I could have it as they couldn't sell it in such disrepair. I'm wondering can it be saved? If so, how? Otherwise I might see about getting a chair cover.

Is it? Nope

 When you find something cool at the Goodwill and think it's vintage...

And you buy it, only to discover at home, the Made in China sticker on the back that you previously missed.

(My living room has big windows and a mural so there is no wall space. That's why it's so low to the floor. I'm thinking of getting something to put above the mirror to balance it out.)

Cosco Chair/Step Stool

 I found this Cosco folding chair this morning at the Dime and Dollar. I don't really know how to upholster furniture but I thought it couldn't be too hard.

There are tabs under the seat you pull out and the seat comes off. I found this fun fabric at AbleLight thrift store and put it over the vinyl fabric. I'm sure this fabric would not stand up to every day use but since I won't be using it all the time, it should do for now.

Chicken Purse

 I found a chicken purse Tuesday at Goodwill.  I named her Chickaletta. My husband wasn't amused.

Winner, Winner Chicken Dinner

 During the month of January,  Goodwill hosted a drawing where you could win a gift card. Every time you made a purchase during the month, you could enter the drawing. The winner would be announced at the end of the month.

I go to Goodwill a lot so my chances of winning were pretty good. I was surprised though when I got the call saying my name was actually drawn. It was funny because I was in the parking lot when the store manager called me so I was able to claim my prize right away. This was Wednesday.

Today, I went and got these two items. I still have over 8 dollars left.

I had bought the orb previously and today found the gnome camping set. There was another piece, like a cooking pot but I didn't like it.

The other item I got was this bench with cubbies. It is all metal.

Mystery Toy Box

 I saw this storage bin at Goodwill and decided to buy it. I don't normally pay this much but after seeing what is inside, I think it was worth it

What do you think? Is it worth it?
