Clearance Aisle Haul

My boss is an enabler, he knows me well and uses that to his advantage...
My first task at work yesterday was to reduce the clearance aisle to 90% off and garden aisle to 80% off. Miss Barbara who is our floral dept lady and me armed with pricing guns went to work. After about an hour our boss walks by and says "ya'll shopping?" to which we reply "of course, we can work and shop at the same time!" He explains how he knew it wouldn't be a hardship for the two of us to do this particular job for him unlike the others who would only complain, plus it gave us an opportunity to shop a little on the clock! Don't you just love him?
My haul... Everything was minus 15% employee discount, I spent just under $25. In the back you can't really see the set of black wicker chargers in a basket and black wicker place mats.
The stretcher frames, there's a big square one in the back which I have plans to make into a square moss covered wreath maybe, those were free! Our frame shop guy, David, saves the customer cast offs for me.

You are killing me Miss Kitty... I couldnt get the picture to come up to see all of your goods but I can only imagine.... I tell you what ... we can meet in the middle somewhere... I can bring tassels and you can bring all that cool stuff from Hobby Lobby I can only dream about getting... Hey, better idea... We could meet in the middle and have a roadside store... Now were talking. I will bring you some of those rubber shoes like I have too!..... Susie H~
