We couldn't agree more and last week we received these from a very unexpected place — a small local thrift store, Lucky Dog.
Like others, we've donated and shopped here and also contributed paper goods (toilet tissue, paper towels) cleaning supplies and financial support. In a small shop, those "necessary" items are most appreciated.
Lucky Dog is within walking distance of our apartment. We visit often and showed photos of our "snowmen" display; seen here. Our "gift" included selected "snowman" items: drink stirrers, gift boxes, figurines, candle holders, and a card. We're thankful for all and some snowmen displayed the past two years will be donated.
BIG hint: never let folks know about a themed display or you too may be "gifted" with more of the same. Last year, neighbors and friends also gifted us with snowmen.
We might change the theme next year and not share with anyone.
