This week I hit the motherload of copper kitchen accessories. Also in my haul I even picked up a piece of history (salt box). I am still waiting for a shipment of copper saute pans and soup pan that I won on Ebay for a steal! I am in the process of redecorating my kitchen which will have (you guessed it) a pot rack displaying all of my copper pieces that I have collected over the years. Speaking of copper, if you are lucky to find a few pieces at a reasonable price, my advice is to grab them up as quickly as possible. Copper prices have soared recently due to the demand for scrap copper. I did not make it to any garage sales this weekend. Actually, they are starting to thin out as the summer winds down. Did you know that all Goodwill stores have a rewards program? For every $25.00 spent, you will receive five percent off of your purchase and they also will load $5.00 on your GoodWill rewards card for being a frequent shopper. Sweet!
