What a Deal!

A few weeks ago when I visited my parents, we went to my favorite thrift store and this shell was among the things I picked up. When I saw it, I didn't hesitate for a second. I commented to my mom who was with me that shells that size are so expensive. The price tag on this? $1.

Today, I went to Michaels and as I was passing the shell aisle, I decided to take a peek to see what a shell like this might be retail. Wouldn't you know I found the EXACT same shell ... for $13!!

Needless to say, I'm pretty happy with my $1 purchase.

  2. Love it. I have one just like it that has a cameo engraved on the top. A favorite treasure and I found it at a thrift store too. Hugs, Marty

  3. Marty,
    I was racking my brain trying to remember what this shell was called. Its actually called a cameo shell! I'd love to see the one you have with an engraved cameo. So interesting!
