Look Out, Another Before Shot!

Back to some old tricks...

My husband and I wondered into the lighting department of a store that sells almost everything a family may need. Food, flowers, pharmacy, toys, shoes, clothes,sporting goods, fish, pet supplies, small household appliances... well, most likely you have all been to some version of these stores. This is what my husband found.

Guess how much! Nope, wrong, try again!
Five dollars! $5.00 plus tax!!! We actually needed a light for a powder room. My husband leaves no stone unturned! And he always has good results, even if he pays full price. He is an excellent researcher.

My Mom is here visiting! :) So I will not be posting much at all this week. My next post will show the results of the light.
Have a good week! We will! : )

Wowee! Like a wal-mart store? We don't have one here, but I reckon even if we DID they wouldn't sell such fixtures for 5 dollars. Cool!
Have a great week visiting!
