Last week I heard that Mrs. Grossman's Sticker factory was going to be having a huge sale (70 -90% off) so I wanted to check it out. I have always loved their stickers. When I was a child one of my mother's friends gave me a large amount of the Mrs. Grossman's stickers. So many stickers in fact that I still have some of them today. So when I heard about the factory sale I thought it would be a lot of fun for my children (and me). Sounded like a good idea, right?
I figured it would be busy but I never anticipated how busy. When we got to the factory there was already a large line wrapping around the building. I thought no big deal, I'll just have my husband stand in line while we shop, problem solved. . .
I spent two hours pushing that tub of stickers in line, inching my way to a total of three registers. Actually they weren't even registers. They were manual credit card imprinters.
So what did I get after standing in line for two hours you ask? Pretty much what you see here. I got the kids some stickers but they have managed to use them already. I also bought a couple other things that I might use as gifts so I'm not showing them. I'm not really sure why I didn't get more stickers since I went through all that trouble. In my defense I was really sick but that also makes the whole thing sound even more crazy. Oh and I'm pretty sure everyone there thought I was crazy for taking pictures. Because really, there was nothing to take pictures of.
My son summed it up best when he told his dad this (when I wasn't around), "This is mom's second worst idea ever!". Hmm, wonder what my worst idea was?
Hope you all had a more peaceful weekend.
