Time - a winged bandit

Morning everyone, I have had two amazingly wonderful days back to back this week, I am feeling inspired and so very thankful.  This digi page is about my Wednesday.  For 15 years I have passed by a resale store fixture warehouse that is open to the public, each time I say to myself, I am going to go in there and just look around one of these days.  Well not only is necessity the mother of invention but also the spur to take you were you need to go.  I inherited a peg board stand that I have transformed into my paper punch storage, my nemesis has been finding the hooks that would work, as I deleted the primary hardware stores from my resource list, this place came to mind.  I was telling my friend and neighbor about it and she said, oh I have always wanted to go there too, so we made a date.  Early Wednesday morning we set out, now the funny part is that I chose the day they were in the final day of their move to a new facility, thanks goodness I phoned ahead.  We got there and it was a chaos of boxes and bins and in a state of confusion, 1/2 the personnel were at the old facility, so we were left to our own devices, we spent the better part of 3 hours roaming, calling out to each other as a treasure was found.  To our delight there were mannequins everywhere, some dressed, some not, in bins and cubby holes, even some in cages, ROFL.  I took so many photos I ran out of room and had to use my friends camera and still not everything was captured.  We will definitely be going back.  I did end up with some wonderful hooks that work for my peg board storage.  I especially love the legs hanging out of this bin and as I started to play with it this morning, this digi page happened, it makes me giggle and hope you get a chuckle from it too.  Happy Friday, hugs
