Glorious Goodwill.....And A Sneak Peek
Lately, I've been frequenting our local Goodwill. It started out because I was looking for a few inexpensive tea cups for my daughter's birthday party and since then I find myself going more and more. I think it's partly because of Mr. Goodwill Hunting's blog. Have you read it? You must! Go read it now and then come back! You can find it here:
It's amazing isn't it! I have to say I've found some pretty amazing stuff at ours so this may have to turn into a weekly post for me. My first great find were two really large apothecary jars.
LOVE. THEM! The ginormous one was $4.99 and the large one was $1.99!
We used them on the food table at my daughter's party.
Then, just last week I came across this.....
Well, hello pretty runner with the $89.99 tag still on it from Target!
I paid $2.99!
In the same trip I scored a campaign dresser, I had been looking for one to use as a buffet in my dining room. It's this style:
Not sure what color I'll paint it, but I can't wait to show you the before and after!
The best part......
I paid $6.99!
Last but, not least I found a couple of cute additions for the little Mister's room I've been working on.
Cute 'lil airplane lamp $2.99
Handsome ship perfectly fit for a vintage travel room.....$1.99
Really I have lots more to post about but I think I hear the baby girl.
Happy treasure hunting!
