I know it’s not Christmas, but it sure felt like it yesterday when Papi came home from a Goodwill Outlet trip in Indianapolis (our favorite picking place). He stayed for one more round of tables and this beautiful Kirkland Nativity was brought out on the table RIGHT in front of him.
If you have not been to a Goodwill Outlet, let me explain. It least this is the way it’s done in the 3 in Indy. On the odd hours all tables are removed and new ones brought in for your picking pleasure. This is done in groups of 6-8 tables and no one is allowed to touch anything until all of that group of tables is in place. People line-up around the table and “go for it” when the word is given. Sometimes it’s a mad scramble!! I always hang back and let the wild ones get their pick then I like to calmly go through and look at what they left behind. Of course, I miss some goodies, but at least I’m still standing on my own two feet, most of the time.
I’m sorry some of the pictures are not very clear, but I was having problems with the camera for some reason. To give a perspective of size, the creche is 18” tall and Joseph is 13 1/4”. This is a VERY detailed set. Now the good part…the charge $4.99. We have no real idea what the original cost might have been, it was from Costco, do yoe have any guesses? Now you know why it is the GW find of the year.
Have a God Filled Day
