we happened upon the grand opening
of a Habitat for Humanity ReStore.
We only had a few minutes to spare,
but figured we ought to run in and take a look.
They mostly had junk.
we found a new
guaranteed-not-to-chip-crack-or-burn top mount cast iron sink or $150.
We did a quick search online to see what they go for in the store.
since a savings of $86 didn't seem all that great,
compared to the $65 price they had on stainless steel sinks
that sell at Lowe's for $168.00
He promptly told us he sells them cast iron sinks for that price
because he can.
Said he might consider coming down on something
that had been in the store a few weeks,
but the cast iron sinks are never there that long.
We were debating...
I mean, on the one hand it was a good price, but not spectacular.
On the other, we will need a kitchen sink.
So it could be prudent to go ahead and get it.
Then the guy told us that (duh!) we didn't have to pay sales tax
since it was a charity store.
So we bought it.

We may not have the house plans figured out yet,
but by golly,
we've got the kitchen sink!
