Seek and ye shall find!
A few months ago, I found this gumball machine at my favorite second hand shop. I paid $10.00 for it.
I try to go to this shop as many days as I can. It takes me only a few minutes to walk down the huge isles where all the little treasures are to be found. Most of the time I come out empty handed because there's nothing there that I would want to buy. On another one of my trips there, I found this other gumball machine. I couldn't believe my luck and RAN towards it 'cause I saw this lady eyeing it. I took a deep breath and grabbed it, almost brushing her nose with it. Oh well, I girl must do what she must sometimes! This one cost me $15.00; I suppose because it's an original Jelly Belly!
This Friday, a girlfriend of mine and I went out for lunch at my favorite Chinese Buffet. Then Lolly suggested we go to the second hand store. I told her I was tired and didn't really feel like it. She insisted and we did.
When I got to the 2nd had store and we started making our usual rounds, for buried treasures, Lolly grabbed a little gumball machine. I stared at it and wished with all my heart that she would put it back. I started praying, “Please God, make her put it back on the shelve!” She did. I grabbed! It was only $2.99!!!
Lookie! Now I have Papa, Mama and BABY gumball machine! All the gumballs you see, I bought at the dollar store. I believe I've spent about $10.00 on them.
I am such a terrible person! None of my friends are permitted to come into my house unless they are willing to get a gumball by placing a quarter in the machine. Papa Gumball Machine is PACKED with quarters already and Mama Gumball has quiet a few quarters already.
My next step will be to copy Hugh Hefner. I'm going to start hunting for a PAY PHONE and start charging friends to make phone calls!
Yay! Maybe I'll someday be rich like he was!
