In our small little town there is a wonderful little Salvation Army. The kids and I love to go and scout through the shelves for treasures. I have a rule though - we are not to enter the shop UNLESS there is something we are needing or looking for. We rarely come out with the thing we went initially in for, but we come out with some amazing things and fabulous deals.
While wandering our beloved little shop last week, I came across this little gem. $2.99 the sticker said. I admit that at first I had no idea what it was....but the little silver tube off the side gave me a hint. A stovetop espresso/cappuccino maker!!!!!! It is the most amazing thing.
And while I have only taken up the habit of coffee drinking in the last eight months or so of my 34 years, I am delighted and excited to be able to make myself gourmet coffee on the woodstove! (If you know me, you know how much I LOVE low-tech).
So I've decided that each time I find some fabulous score at the local Sally Ann, I'm going to tell you about it.....And that alone gives me a reason to return to the halls of heavenly second-handing! ;)
