Scored big at the rummage sales!

Despite feeling a little "off", I agreed to go with T to the city-wide rummage sale.  I'm glad I did! We found two very nice, reclining hard plastic lawn chairs for $7, 5 really nice, comfy lawn chair cushions for $2, a deep fryer that works on propane for $7, a cute pair of shoes I think will fit Riley for $1, and a nice tin I can use for Christmas cookies (I was really low on Chrismas themed tins). And also a little bottle of some oil T wanted and a thing for my seat belt that changes the connection point so the shoulder belt doesn't go across my neck, lol! I think that was $1.

Tom already has fried up some potatoes. They were really, really good, too! He'll probably use it when camping more than here, but I can imagine him getting the urge for french fries sometime and firing it up, lol. He was asking me how to make onion rings and I had to admit, I'm so clueless about deep frying, I don't even know what kind of coating or batter to put on the stuff, or how to make it stay on! The only thing my mom ever deep fried was her donuts. (oooh, now I'm thinking of those donuts! They were to die for! I haven't had them in, probably .... 20 or 30 years!)

Tom had to give the deep fryer a try. He did up a big batch of fries and chips and they were fantastic! Greasy and salty and so bad for us, we know, but oooh, so good!

Yummy!  Sounds great.   :smileyhappy:

That's a nice price on chair cushions too!   And the propane deep fryer, my dh would love that.  He loves his little propane campstove.   Of course the Riley shoes are a good deal, rummage sales are so good for all things baby.

Yes, they are sort of like Adirondack chairs. They have high backs and the backs recline. Very nice, and they fold up, so we can take them camping!
That's the kind of book sale I'd liike to find!

Great buys!   Are they like plastic Adirondack chairs?  Those are so comfortable.

I went to the library book sale this morning.  They had a special.  Hundreds of books for 2 for 10 cents!  I bought many plus some 25 cent ones.  All their vhs were 10 cents also.  I bought an "8 minute arms" video (now I have to remember to do it, right?).   These prices were this sale only, they had overflow of donations.
