In my Amazon wish list sits a sweet little Victrola stereo. Old timey with modern touches such as a CD player and Bluetooth capability. It even has a turntable for the few LP vinyl records I kept from my teen years and of course a radio. No remote, you actually have to get up to change the volume, turn the dial for different radio stations and power it off.
I love to listen to music and thought this stereo would be perfect in my future home. It has been sitting there for quite some time now, well over a year easily. Well, not anymore. As a friend told me last night "patience once again has paid off".
At Amazon the lowest I've seen this stereo was $99.99, which I thought was pretty good. Last week I got the big ShopKo ad in the mail and after letting it sit around the house for several days I finally took a look at it. Sure g.lad I did.
The same little stereo was on sale for $79.88! So the youngest and I headed over there on Sunday only to discover they were sold out. Figures. I was bummed, but they said they were getting more and the sale is good until the 16th so I had time.
I grabbed a couple bath towels on sale for $3.48 each to add to the stash I have for the new home and headed to the register. After paying for the two towels a coupon spit out for $10 OFF on a $50 purchase! Holy cow!
Tuesday, right after work, I headed over to ShopKo with my coupon and picked up my new Victrola for a whopping $69.99! I was thrilled! Once I got it home the youngest quickly had it out of the box so we could check it out. It's adorable!
We got the Bluetooth set up to my Kindle and I've been playing Glenn Miller on it ever since. Seems fitting don't you think? I've been absolutely giddy, like a little kid at Christmastime. I will thoroughly enjoy this little stereo for many, many years to come.
