This is my first Craigslist experience. I responded to a posting under the Free category, a lady giving away some plastic hannukah tablecloths. I was expecting very thin plastic throwaway table covers...but look what awaited me in the box she left on her porch!
Ten never-used fabric-backed wipe-clean table covers, all different sizes (some round, some rectangles, differing lengths), 4 heavy felt embroidered placemats, and a set of unopened cookie cutters...
SCORE!!! Wow, how fun is this? I'm not a heavy decorator type, even for the holidays, unless the mood strikes, and I can count on one hand the times I've relied on buying party decorations for celebrations...we usually make our own. The funny part is that of all the days we celebrate a year, Hanukkah is the least "important" on our radar...but with this fun stuff, it looks like a party in a box. Cookies will have to be on the list...no excuses this year :) Oh well, and while I'm at it, the traditional latkes...and jelly donuts??
Phew, no food talk yet...we're recovering from last week :)
Yay for serendipity...and craigslist!!
