That's right! I bought a truck. A vintage and rather rusty one at that. But it came with a load of pumpkins in the back so how on earth could I pass it up?! What do you think?
How freaking cute is this?! When my oldest and I entered JC Penney to cut through and go to Bath & Body Works (I had coupons to use) this was sitting there to greet me. I have a real affection for old vintage trucks so this one grabbed me the moment I saw it.
The fact that it was on sale for 50% OFF wasn't helping matters as I could imagine exactly where I was going to put it and all the possibilities for decorating it throughout the year. Loads of ideas were swimming through my head. And then the clerk came over and she said she was thinking the same thing! I walked away. It was best.
We went to Bath & Body Works and picked up our treasures and as we were heading out I told my daughter I really wanted that truck. It was originally priced at $70 and at half price was now $35. I don't buy stuff like this and I certainly don't buy holiday decor at that price. I hit the dollar store and the clearance shelves after the fact. But his was soooooooo cute and it had my heart big time.
So we went back and I got it. The clerk told me she knew I'd be back for it. And she was right!
When she rang it up she also asked me if I was going to use my store credit card so she could give me an additional 20% OFF the sale price. Okay! I had just paid that thing off the day before (no interest) from taking my youngest underwear shopping last month so it was free and clear.
I ended up paying $28.00 for this truck and I still think that was a lot for what pretty much amounts to a frivolous toy, but I've had not one ounce of buyer's remorse over it and I absolutely love it. I'm excited to take out the pumpkins after Thanksgiving and decorate it for Christmas. It looks so dang cute sitting there in my living room. Yaaaaaaay! So dang cute!!!
