" Hunting For Treasure At Hudson's "

We started out by eating lunch at Garfield's...........







We had Chicken Tortilla Soup and a Turkey Bacon Melt..

Then we converged on Hudson's.................


Racks and racks of clothes...............


This is one of the four pale green Wicker Chairs I got....





At 40 % off..........................




These are $ 250.00 men's jeans for $ 3.99






The girl looked at every rack in the store.........







I got one book and three audio books at 80% off........





Drug Store items were 40 % off..............





There were a few books shelves still full, now at 80% off..



Anti- age and cleansing stuff I got at 40% off.......







Men's jogging pants for $ 1.99 ..............


After we left Hudson's we hit the Mall to Birthday shop for
Melanie's little girl, Molly, who will be 7 on April 29 th.
I was, as the saying goes: "too pooped to pop" afterwards!

I thought about you yesterday converging on Hudson's - looks like you both had a wonderful time. I've been getting caught up on your blog and I love your statue of St. Francis. I saw one at Lowe's I want to buy for my garden. Thanks for putting the prayer upt, it's so beautiful.

Looks like a great place to hunt for bargains.
Reminds me of T.J. Maxx and a few Ross stores.
Your chairs are beautiful, that was worth the trip alone !
Have fun, and enjoy your time.

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

This is my kind of store! I would have been so tempted at the book racks.

The pale green chair is fabulous!

A Thousand Clapping Hands said...

That Hudson's is just too much fun! Wish I had one here.
Catherine

TheWritersPorch said...

Pat....the thing about the book racks is there are so many tempting books by authors you don't know....I probably looked past some great books!

Catherine...I don't know why he doesn't expand to all the Southern states, it has been in Mississippi for forty years!

Sydney said...

I love the green chairs. My question is, how long did you last? We went over the weekend to the annual Houston Library sale -- so inexpensive. There was room the size of a baseball field (well, about half of one) with books on table after table -- I wanted to stay all day but after 3 hours my eyes could not process anything anymore. Literally my brains were scrambled!

GLad you took pix for us!

Why don't I live there and save some money???

Shrinky said...

I want a Hudson's near me - waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!

Maybe if I explain to hubby how much money I can save, he'll stamp up my airfare over? C'mon, it's got to be worth a try don't you think? (Wink)
