Texas Shopping = polish pottery

At the beginning of this week I had to travel out of town for work. I was in Houston for three days and got back late last night.
Everyone was asleep so I could not prowl through the house looking for dirty dishes that needed to be put away, clothes piles and etc… I just got in bed and slept. This tripped was packed with work activities and a bit of shopping. I have discovered that within 3 minutes of the hotel in Houston is a Tuesday Morning and a Marshalls. Both of which have always produced great finds. I have also discovered that perhaps Texans do not enjoy Polish pottery as much as I do. Monday I went to Marshalls making one small purchase of a two small bowls. I mentally noted the other 5 pieces they had on the shelf. Tuesday I popped into about 15 minutes before closing time and picked up three more pieces, they also brought out a beautiful mixing bowl that I did not have room for in my luggage. On the way to the airport I made a quick stop into the Tuesday Morning. This store is about double the size of the one I am used to. They had so much stuff, it was hard to stay focused and stick to my time schedule. I grabbed a few clearance small stuffed animals for the daughter’s mission trip and three photo albums. It is my goal to get organized! They also had a few nice pieces of pottery, so I grabbed a pitcher and baking dish. I bought 7 pieces of pottery while in Houston, my carry on was very heavy… But, everything made it home safely. I hope to travel to Poland some day purchase it from the factory, that trip is for another time. Until then I just keep up the hunt here. That is half the fun!

Don't you just love clearance finds? You should post pics of what you bought...If you can ever find one on a trip, HomeGoods is the best (its a TJ Maxx store)!
