One of our favourite shops in town is the Heritage Thrift Shoppe. People donate their unwanted items which the store sells and the money raised goes to our local hospital; a win, win for everyone.

When in town we usually pop in for a minute or two looking for cheap novels, Canadian books, or whatever else catches our eye.

Today this box came home with us. Mary spotted the lady putting the pots and pans out on display and asked about the price. She then took a picture with her cell phone and sent it off to our daughter to see if she could use the set.

It was all there still packed in the original plastic bags, never used.

The pots look great sitting on our counter, but that's not where they will stay. Next time Leanne visits they will be going home with her.

The set included this bonus knife, a retail value of $169.00  at our local Canadian Tire.

This pot and pan set happens to be on sale at Canadian Tire this week for $399.99 without the bonus knife.

The Heritage Store sold the box set including the knife for ........... $85.00

That's a better price than you will find at those discount malls in the U. S.

Now, if we could just find a car with that type of discount we would be buying.

Safe travels everyone and thanks for stopping by.
