some of you know that I have raved about my perching stool since the OT persuaded me to have it (I wasn't keen but you all said I'd never regret getting one!!!
MY only problem has been that it is most used in the kitchen, but i need it upstairs if I am to wash my hair .... so have to wait for hubby to come home and lug it up stairs, and then wait for him to remember to lug it down again :roll: both of us are fed up with that
so ..... my chain that holds my rings broke last night
& on the way to get it fixed this lunchtime I walked past the local hospice shop.
There .... sitting adorned by loads of handbags (they do make a good hanger for loads of things don't they
) was an almost brand new perching stool & a really good make ..... and they wanted £15 for it. I never knew I could move that quickly
raced to bank and back, and snapped it up. It is wonderful, and a quick look on the net suggests that I would have paid around £65 for a brand new one of same make etc. :shock:
I am happy, and the charity shop are happy, so I feel really lucky to have been going past just at the right time.
Oh well .... there's no excuse for not washing my hair now!
just a thought if you are looking for stuff, that charity shops are often given stuff when people no longer need them.
I have to say it has been an expensive trip though, as the new clasp for the gold chain my rings are on cost nearly £30 :roll: :roll:
