My Dream Sale

Today I went to a National Geographic Warehouse sale at the Convention Center in Seattle. It was a bit weird at first, as downtown Seattle was not that busy, and as I walked towards the Convention Center, people all but disappeared. When I got there, I thought it was actually closed -- it was deserted and empty! The food stores were all closed, one guy was slowly sweeping an immobile escalator. But then I finally found the huge room with the sale in it, and it was a Bonanza!

Huge coffee table books were $10 each, small books for $5 and even $1, videos for $1. Most of these things I can't share with you since they're presents for people, but I did score a few things for myself. I got a $95 paisley embroidered rayon skirt for $25, and two packages of silver and gold Indian embroidered ornaments for $10 each down from $35 each.

I'm not much of a shopper, but this was awesome for me. I got about $500 worth of stuff for just over $100. If any of you Seattle people read this in time, I recommend you go for the last day on Sunday! They had piles of stuff.

I hope you all had a Happy Thanksgiving! Michael and I had a wonderful day at his sister Stephanie's. I was honored to have 2 year old Riley tell me I had "Glasses! Cool!"

Hi Juliapequlia,

I can't wait to see what I get for Christmas from this sale; a National Geographic sale no less, what could be more perfect? Too bad I'm living in another continent....
