I go to garage sales every Saturday morning.
This nice lady had garage sale for three straight weekends. She kept bringing out new items, so I kept going to her house. And I got to know her a little. Of course, she quickly learned that I was a Costco shopper. "The only thing I buy from Costco is olive oil", she said. Then she told me I can pick any one item from her garage sale if I would bring her a bottle of olive oil from Costco.
So, I picked this vase. "You have a good taste" she said with a smile. This vase is about 35 years old. It was her wedding gift from a rich friend of hers, she explained. She was selling it for $15.00. I love this vase. I can't wait to use it for my flowers. This vase will be cherished for ever. It has a good sentimental value that money can't buy.
PS. Costco sells about 4 different kinds of olive oils. I bought the best one for her.
