Dover Haul

I have promised a number of friends to accompany them to Dover after the Holidays to shop using the gift cards I strategically requested for Christmas.

Unfortunately I truly do not need anything at the moment as I went a little off the rails during my last trip. List in hand- two gift cards, baby pads (for an embroidery project), and a trunk cover (not expecting to find this but didn't want to shell out for the barn cover and needed some sort of cover for rainy season).

I got my gifts, baby pads, and cover (a lovey navy with gray and burgundy trim for a cool $84 awesomeness that played fort to Linus in the below shot).

Oh! Navy Eskadron Boots! Sometimes I just want to Velcro! And Ogilvy baby pad...I've been eyeing those for a while now! Tack Sponges- who can have enough? A total impulse grab Navy Vest on the way to the register.

Dover learning: Best practice just to buy items as you desire them- otherwise you end up standing at the register telling the clerk "perhaps don't tell me the total."

  1. I go with my husband and he stops me from buying all the things. I did manage to get a new crop and ear bonnet though.

  3. Unless I'm prepared to drop the extra money I avoid tack stores like the plague. There's always something extra that I need or a good deal to find. Struggle!
