Magic of Marshalls


I met my teen-neighbor, the teenager, over at Marshalls for her maiden voyage. Anyone who goes with me to Marshalls for the first time has a magical experience. By magical I mean the thing you have been looking for, longing for, appears on a rack right in front of your very eyes.

Case and point: Took Mother in Law there for the first time. She is a bargainer like me so it was right up her alley. She was in the middle of a huge remodel of her house and been looking for copper finish bath accessories. She had been able to find some, but they were PRICEY. On her maiden voyage there it was, a plethora of copper finish toothbrush holders, soap dispensers, trash cans, towel bars etc for 1/10 the price she had seen. Magic.

Well, teen-neighbor had not gotten there on time, and I had some things to get (cut to me, cart FULL). When she got there we were pressed for time (not the way to shop there). So her maiden voyage was a mess. Fun, but a mess.

On a magical note, I got a pink and green comforter, pink polka dot sheets, and two large lime green pillows to fix up Coco's daybed/one day big girl bed. It was as if they had seen her pink cabana and said "You know Mrs., this would look fabulous in Coco's Cabana." They were right. I will post pics tomorrow.

In other news Mimi (my mom, and this is her grandma name) is coming today! She is flying in for Halloween and once she sees these two cuties she may never want to leave!!!

I am also Marshall's obsessed. Not QUITE as obsessed as I am with Home Goods. That store is unbelievable. I swear 90% of my home came from there!
Happy shopping!

I think I need to go with you, my trips to these kinds of stores are too often a miss! But you seem to have found some great treasures! Have a great visit with your mother!!

I can think of anything better than a Marshalls shopping extravaganza with One Fabulous Mom. Maybe I'll make to Southern California one day!

So I need you to come to the east coast and take me on a magical Marshalls shopping trip! Every time I compliment someone on something they are wearing or something in their house, it seems they all say the same thing...Marshalls. I haven't had that luck! Maybe some of your luck will rub off!! :)

Too funny! I never find anything at my Marshall's!! Can't wait to see your pics.

I'm another one of those Marshall failures - one time I found a bottle of Ralph Lauren's Blue cologne - but that was it - you need to come to the East Coast and take some of us shopping!!!!!
