So, we're into Saturday of the Memorial Day weekend. I work. Only 5 hours this afternoon. Most of our business is done in the morning to early afternoon. Things should be heading into the slow down period as I pull into the parking lot. That's fine with me.
If you're looking for an appliance, this is a good time to buy. Or paint, we usually have a paint sale over the holiday weekend. While I can't say for certain, since I only occasionally work in that department, I'm betting there's going to be a rebate coupon. I can remember a time when there was an actual 'sale,' but then some smart guy from corporate realized that not everybody gets around to turning in their rebate coupons. Translation: If you don't apply for the rebate, you bought the paint a full price and they make more money.
Here's a blast from the past. A picture of what my dining room ceiling used to look like. Don't you just love the raspberry trim on the staircase and the grapevine border?
