Yesterday, I set out for Whole Foods but since it is in the same strip mall as the Dollar Store and K-Mart (an odd combination of demographics, don'tcha think?) I got sidetracked. If I ever manage to print enough scarves for my open studios, there will be a mirror for people to admire themselves in, which I found at the Dollar Store.
Then I wandered into K-Mart, a store which I roundly despise because their customer service is so horrid. Nonetheless, they have these wonderful cotton knit pants that are lighther than sweat pants and are soooo comfortable. I had purchased a few pair in August and liked them so much that I went back for more. Found only 2 in my size, not in my favorite colors but I bought them anyway, to the tune of $7.98 each.
Then I found an as-yet unloaded rack of long-sleeved cotton t-shirts for $5.98 each (NOT made in China - although they were not made in the U.S., either). Bought 5 white and 2 black (although 1 black was a v-neck by mistake and has to go back). Washed'em and sort-of shibori'd them, although I did this at home and most of my clamps are in the studio. I was thinking I would sell them at open studios but honestly, they are such heavy cotton and are so cozy and fit so well now that they have shrunk in the wash, that I decided to keep them for myself. Perfect for winter and if I find more at another K-mart, I'll buy a truckload. The only downside is polyester thread but most people don't care and even I don't care -- not for THAT price!
This was supposed to be purple and you know how I feel about pink. Will have to overdye.
So that was yesterday's shopping adventure. Today's was taking Marty to Lord & Taylor to buy a sport jacket and pair of slacks that fit so he can show up at his grandson's bar mitzvah not looking like a homeless person. Mission accomplished! Reward - pastrami sandwiches/cole slaw/russian dressing for dinner. The only trouble with that wonderful deli food is that it makes you very thirsty. Ah, well, you can't have everything.
