A bargain ain't a bargain unless it's something you need.

PLACE:  Living room
SUBJECT:  Thrifted JAPAN ornament

I like to collect vintage “Japan” ornaments.  I NEED them (yeah, right).  One of the little things that makes me happy, is discovering one of these ornaments in a thrift shop.  What makes it even better is only paying $0.20 for said ornament.  I know, I know, I live a sad and pathetic little life.  I admit it.  I found this little guy on Wednesday.  I had a small window of opportunity (under 30 minutes) to visit one of my favorite thrift shops after work and before I had to pick up StellaDella from school (DramaQueen & MonkeyBoy had an after school function).  I whizzed through the store, and found this guy and another similar gal hanging on the shop Christmas tree right before my time ran out.  Forty cents for both?  Yeah, I think that’s in my budget.  Score!
