Remember the buckets I showed you in Friday's post HERE? Well, all the way there I was trying to decide how many holey metal buckets I wanted to buy.
Hmm, two would be perfect because I could put them on both sides of my front door at Christmas and fill them with pinecones and greenery. Or maybe place a little pine tree in each of them with a little bit of burlap poking out the top of the buckets. If there was only one left (gasp), then I would put it beside my fireplace with some white paper birch logs in it. Oh, the possibilities that were floating through my naive little mind.
At the farm, I spotted the bucket vendor and it looked like they were ALL there. Eeek! I could hardly contain my excitement, but I didn't want to look like a metal bucket geek, so I casually strolled on over to the display. And then my heart fell into my mud covered boots.
Uh, my holey metal buckets were $65.00 a piece!
I don't want to question the dealer's pricing strategy, because of course she has to make a profit and who knows how much she paid for these things in the first place. But I was just imagining them to be priced at somewhere between $5 and $10 a piece.
So, Pam has no holey metal buckets with handles. I'm thinking that I will run across them again one day at a less impressive price, so my bucket dreams will just have to wait.
