Oh yes Kellie, I love Big LOTS!!
Talk about bargains! People come to my house and say oh it's so cute! I
tell them it is decorated in Big Lots and junk stores and they flip! My
girlfriend says I am the only person she knows who buys stuff at Big Lots and
makes it look like it came from Lazarus!
Oh yes and a little dumpster diving now and then if I see something that
looks like it might be good or I can use! I found a great wicker set in a
dumpster, one leg was a bit worn so i cut the others off to match! Now it is
on my front porch and looking good! Just last week found a perfect weight
bench and weights sitting by the road for the garbage man. It was a bit
heavy so the hubby had to help pick that one up but he didn't mind.
Our shelter is out where 3M and Bullard are. Just past the railroad tracks
and the armory. It is pretty nice for a shelter and usually the dogs don't
look so bad but this week they did and it just made me feel terrible. The
shelter in Georgetown is pretty nice too. Ever been to that one?
I haven't been to the one in Lex.
