What A Deal!

I have been wanting to get a magnifier for my Ott light. My eyes are just not what they used to be. I would love to get back to my cross stitch. There are so many new patterns out that I would love to stitch. We do not have a Joanns where I live. We do have a Michaels and the cost for the magnifier there was $125.00. I was going to purchase it with the next 50% off coupon I received.
Last week I went to Glens Falls shopping with not one but two ailing friends. I will save that for next time!!! Anyway, one of our stops was Joanns. I wanted to see if they had the magnifier. Sure enough they did.

On closer inspection I noticed a clearance sticker ( 2 of them) on the box. When I saw the price I took the box apart to make sure that all parts were there and not broken. Everything was good. I couldn't believe the deal I was getting. I had my 40% off coupon but knew I couldn't use it as the item was on sale. At the checkout, I gave the coupon to the clerk to use on my order.



To my surprise, she used my coupon on the magnifier. Which made the grand total of the magnifier $7.99. What a deal!!!
