Plus nobody was pushing me around or fighting for carts.
For under $10, I found a real-deal pashmina scarf in my favourite colour; a pottery soup mug; and a copy of Surprised by Laughter: The Comic World of C.S. Lewis. Yes, in spite of what Roald Dahl's Matilda said, Lewis was "sustained by joy and humour," to quote the dust jacket.
These other two items were bought earlier in the week. The sewing book (with unused patterns!) is for me.
And the plastic Tardis cookie jar, with lights and sound effects, is an early present for Mr. Fixit.
