Last weekend, while we were shopping at a Ross store, I found the cutest cat cactus mug. I bought it, but when I got home and was unloading it from the car, the bag fell and the mug broke. I was bummed. It broke into too many pieces to even try re-gluing and using for something else.
Not only was it the last mug they had, but at a store like Ross, they likely won't get any more in stock.
I took a photo before I put the pieces in the trash. I sent a photo to a friend of mine who shops at random stores, because, why not?
Imagine my surprise when I got a text just a few days later from this friend. He had stopped at an antique mall to look at kitchen items. On a shelf was the same mug!
He delivered it the next day. What a great surprise! I enjoyed coffee from it this morning.
