Know what I scored over the weekend? This:
The Hoover FloorMate, wet AND dry pickup features. Dude. I’ve been wanting this forever.
$162.39 at Target.
Know what I got it for?
Yup. Sitting on a sidewalk in Oakland. We were walking back to La’s house after coffee, and went to investigate (it had already been spotted on our way out). We had no way of knowing whether or not it worked, but decided we might as well try it, and then a nice lil lady popped out and said, "Hey! It works! My girlfriend and I bought something better, that’s the only reason we’re throwing it out. Do you need hardwood floor cleaner? Hang on!"
It was rad. Now I have to figger out how to work the sucker. Can you believe I haven’t yet? That’s only because I started on the Mamluke Socks from Folk Socks, and I’ve been working on the stranding (and sizing issues — I’ve restarted it three times — I think it’s going to be happy on size 0s).
I have a HOOVER! The one I wanted! I need to go buy a lottery ticket. (Also, I have to say I adore a girl who investigates sidewalk goodies with me — we found her an antique upholstered (gold brocade) chair the other day….)
