I do believe in buying quality goods, just on a budget. I recently noticed that each bathroom has had a shortage our hand towels (and noting that several were in the mending basket), there just wasn't enough. I made a mental note to look for neutral colored towels the next time that I was at a second hand shop.
I went to three today, striking out at #1, a hit or miss situation and at #2, I was stunned to see that the store is being emptied out. Salvation Army, a long time fixture of Main Street in this city, is closing. More surprising as within the past few years, a major upgrade with some structural repairs was done to the building. Always found plenty of clients whenever I stopped in. This is one of 4 SA thrift stores that will permenantly close as of the end of business tomorrow. There was little left, I found nothing so I moved on to my third destination: Savers.
2 Laura Ashley towels. One is more of a light beige while the other is more golden for the Powder room, which has a golden beige wall paint.
I paid $1.99 each and they are all in excellent, like new condition. $12 and change with tax-less than one regularly priced towel.
