Look what I found today...

Today I stopped in to Craft Mart. I used to have a booth there so sometimes I stop in to look around and chat with the owner... a very nice lady. I found some goodies and only spent $2.44! Bargains, bargains, bargains!!
I've been wanting an apothecary jar and I found one for .50 cents!! Yes, .50 cents! It was marked $6.99. I had to ask the owner, "Is this really . 50 cents?"
One problem... it has painted flowers on it and I don't want painted flowers on my new, fabulous apothecary jar. I tried to scratch the paint with my fingernail, but it's not budging. The paint is very thin, so it may be some type of sticker. ??
Any advice on how to remove?
I also got two antique bottles. One was .75 cents... YES, .75 cents! The other was $1.00!
My lucky day!!

Can't wait to decorate/alter/reconstruct/recycle *bLinG* them out!

I'm just so excited about my apothecary jar. Those things are EXPENSIVE! I hit the jackpot today. Now if I can only get that dang paint off.

This picture of me has nothing to do with my great bargains today! I just thought it was funny, so I'm posting it. Have a happy day~

Congrats on the deal! I love bargain hunting, especially for old books.
