I called and you offered me my money back. I had already put it together, so I brought it just as it was. After I got my money back, I spied this in the back of the store that would be PERFECT for the girls room. I was cautious this time, but I knew it was a $120.00 shelf, so the $34.99 was a steal of a deal. Right?
Except that it had no HARDWARE! I said, "Ok- I can deal with this. I will just call the manufacturer and tell them it didn't have hardware, and they will send it free of charge. :)" Well, come to find out, Target doesn't stand behind the furniture they produce and so I was stuck. And don't worry! I haven't totally forgiven Target yet either...
So after a LONG shopping trip to Lowe's, spending more money on hardware than I spent on the shelf, a lot of work from a patient and long-suffering Dad, and a lot of "jimmy rigging", we finally had our shelf.The shelf didn't bring me as much happiness anymore, because it had turned out to be such a pain. Now every time I look at that shelf, I remember how much money I did NOT save. Grr...
Today I decided you give you another chance. With Halloween right around the corner, I needed to gather some inspiration.
HAPPY DAY!! I came away with some amazing vintage fabrics I just can't wait to sink my sewing machine into.
Plus I was able to get this pack pack for Miss J (that she so DESPERATELY wanted)
And even a good start on Saroya's Halloween costume
All for only $8.50. So I say to you Goodwill Industries, we are square. But please, don't try to mess with me any more. I will take you down... :P

P.S. I really wanted this too, but it was $4.99 and I just wasn't sure. It seems a little crazy I know,
but the more I look at the possibilities, the more I like it. Not for a dress, but can you see the options this fabric has??? (Thanks to Miss J for taking the picture!) I may be back tomorrow.
