Shopping the Maxx... Thrifty Thursday...

I took a little side trip to TJ Maxx today at lunch... I was looking for a pair of hot pink gloves...

Inside "the Maxx"... I didn't find my gloves... but I did find these... a set of 26...oops... sorry about the glare! I love the name of these sweet treasures...Porcelain Alphabet Orbs...I'll find just the right little wire basket to put them in, then display my Alphabet Orbs on the living room coffee table... The best part was... the price! Only $14.99 for the set of 26 Orbs...

Porcelain Alphabet Orbs... they're a good thing...Down here in French Lique...

Now go visit Leigh in Bloggeritaville for Thrifty Thursday... She's baaaacccckkkk!

You go girl...Maxx and I are bestest friends...I'd be lost without him! Check out the price on those orbs at places like Ballards...you got a great deal...like you didn't know that!
If you are a magpie...so am I. I love shiny things. Let's just hope that number didn't go with a striped jumpsuit!

Those are neat! I think that's a better price than some I saw at another shop. Good going, Dixie! Those are really cool!

My DIL loves going to TJ Maxx, she is always showing me such cute and unique things she finds there...wish we had one near us...sigh, non-perks of living in a very small town...no nice stores to shop in.
I love those orbs, can't wait to see how you display them, down there in French Lique...love that name.
Have a beautiful day..and stay warm
Molly

Glad to hear you didn't leave empty handed or should that be gloved!
Hope your little fingers stay warm until that perfect pink pair crosses your path.
...is it the 21st yet!

Well, let me grab the shovel, get through these 7 inches and then, I'm off- to TJ Maxx. I've seen these orbs in shops for $2-3 EACH- so you got a deal, baby! One shop had them in a clear tall vase- but I just knew my kids would not be able to keep their hands outta there to try to spell things, and then the glass would be all fingerprinty or worse, so I think your idea of a wire basket is wise...

Because we all know you NEEDED them, LOL LOL
Can't wait to see them in their new abode :)
Love & Heaven's Blessings,

Hi Dixie!

I LOVE TJMaxx! I think write a post about a bargain I have found there every other week! LOL

Jan @ bobbypinsboardwalk said...

If you can't find a place for them, let me know -- I could come up with something (haha). Really - those are fabulous and I'm going to go to TJ Maxx tomorrow, keeping my fingers crossed.

Jane said...

Those alphabet orbs are great! I've seen them at other stores for a lot more so you got a fabulous deal. They'll look great in a wire basket.

You have been a busy blogger. I've missed a lot. These are so great. Wish I could get to a TJM to see if I could find some - you've had a lot of shopping luck lately! I wanna go shopping with you. laurie
