Wallack's Warehouse *happy-happy* Sale!!! Haul-Report.

HUGE Thank-You to Stephanie Guimond for posting in the Creative Ottawa Facebook Group about the Wallacks' Warehouse Sale over at City Center yesterday. 
So hope we can get there earlier next year because it was FAB-u-LOUS!

Sale was on from 9 AM -6 PM... Greg had to work 8:30 AM -4:30 PM.
His last route ended downtown and the car was parked waaaaay out at the east end St. Laurent Depot (he drives for OCTranspo, our local City Bus). 
Though his route ran late by 10 minutes... He managed to get to the car, drive someone that needed dropping at Baseline Station there and get home here (Pinecrest/Baseline) by 5:35.
Then we fleeeeeeeew to City Center. Made it there and in the door by 5:50 PM. 
He DESERVES a Big ol'Medal!
Then we rush-shopped in tandem for the 10 minutes that was left. 
Greg knows what I like/need so I trust him completely to grab and go for my tastes. 
He's awesome.

Hoping some of this helps heal my ailing Muse.

Pretty fricken' Happy with THAT 10 minutes of shopping, I must say! 
Now if I can just get my body feeling better so all the new goodies can go to good use...
Have dreeeeamed of Caran D'Ache but being the poor artist who re-uses junk and others leftovers, ner'thought I'd own any all of mine own.
Would need to guess on some of the retail prices that weren't marked...
That was over $500 (Greg said about $530-540-ish) in Retail for $139.52. 
Whoo hoo!
