I went out early Saturday morning for Costco shopping. I didn’t go to Costco last night because I was entertaining a lady friend.
I bought gas first when it was still early in the morning. Then I proceeded to shop. I took my time looking at everything. When you take your time, that’s when you find good stuff. I was hoping to find something.
I bought 4 more T-Shirts. Bought some seasoned sea-weeds, a book about local history, etc..
Today’s highlight was 14 Inch bamboo bowls by Island Bamboo. These bowls are beautiful. There were different colors such as red and green. I personally liked natural bamboo color. I thought $24.99 was a crazy low price. So, I got one. This bowl will occasionally come in handy.
Right after Costco shopping, I went to a local farmers market. I found a bamboo bowl there. With my naked eyes that bowl looked identical to what I just bought from Costco, no kidding…identical to my eyes. He wanted $75.00 for just a bowl (no utensils included). Yikes…
As soon as I got home I went online and looked up 14" Island Bamboo bowl. I found the exact same bowls at Amazon for $46.00. They didn’t even include utensils.
And, finally, I went to eBay and found somebody selling this exact same product for $54.99 (free shipping). I often think about buying stuff at Costco and selling them at eBay. I guess a lot of people are doing just that.
Costco is the best, I tells ya.
Early morning shopping was fun. This was the second straight weekend I went to Costco early morning. Could this be my new weekly routine? We’ll see…
Have a nice weekend everyone.
