That's Hats

I've been lamenting not being able to find many nice items for this year's Operation Christmas Child party.  Today I got a tip from an Operation Christmas Child project leader in my area about hats on sale at Children's Place in our local mall.

I then checked online and found a 25% off printable coupon from Children's Place and tucked it into my pocket when my husband and I went to walk at the mall tonight.

Well, along with a little exercise we also got some upper body workout when we carried home the three bags containing 118 of these cute hats.  They were marked with retail prices of up to $12.95 each (there are quite a few different varieties) and are selling for .99 each.  With the extra 25% off coupon they were only .74 each and I got an extra 5% off for using my Children's Place credit card.

Even better was the wonderful conversation I had with the cashier who was excited to hear about Operation Christmas Child.  She openly shared about her stay at a faith-based rehab facility and we praised God together for her 8 months of being clean from a heroin addiction.

Hats off to a great night!
