Pretty Paper and a Goodwill Find ~

I don't know if I have ever shared this before , but I ADORE beautiful paper...notecards, greeting cards, etc. I pick it up whenever I find some that is a good price whether it is vintage or new. I love purchasing notecards at Home Goods and TJ Maxx...they have very high quality *PRETTY* paper items and very good prices.

I found this little card rack at a Goodwill store last week. (one I have never been to before) In one part of the store nothing has a price on it. You just take what you want to the register and they give you a price. Usually I am very hesitant about that because I figure they will want a lot of money if there is no price. So I thought okay...I will see what they say....whispering to myself, "if they want $10 for this thing then they can keep it"....LOL...I asked "how much" and she said $1.00 !! I was thrilled! So now I have a card display for some of my pretty notecards. It spins around and has 12 different places for cards. I want to add a finial to the top along with some ribbon or something to *pretty* it up.
Blessings~

Hi Sandi..

You sure found a great little piece at the Goodwill store. What a sweet little card rack for you to use to display your collection of cards and note cards. I'm just like you. I love pretty stationary and find myself buying more than I need, but it's so hard to pass it up.
