Hello everyone! I thought I'd take you to Goodwill with me. I gotta say I got quite a few strange looks while taking my pictures but no one asked me why? I'd ask! Anyway, isn't that a pretty window treatment. Wish I had someplace to put it!
My favorite Goodwill is just a few minutes from me across the street from the grocery store I go to most. So I usually stop by at least once a week.
Pretty mirror with matching sconces!
These looked new to me!
A table to go with those chairs! $35 and it looked new too.
Look at all those unfinished candlesticks just waiting for someone to paint them up! Not me I have more than enough candlesticks!
I almost bought this. It's a zen garden of animal print votives and black stones. It was really long and it would look fabulous as centerpiece on a table or fireplace mantel.
This I just thought was a cute accent piece. The top (handle) comes off. It would be a cute planter!
Again, I almost got this. It's a pretty big mirror and really quite wonderful. If I had a study or office that was darker I'd have gotten it.
Look! Some Blue Willow!
What did I buy? Well nothing that I've shown above! I did buy this big bag of fabric for $3!! I bought it because I saw that it had two pieces of toile in it. Most of the fabric is not something I'd use so I'm going to resell it at my garage sale.
As you can see, one piece has some dirt or mildew on it. The other piece is just fine. I washed the yellow and red toile and it still has stains. Oh well, 1/2 yard is just fine. Anyone have any ideas - I don't know what the stain is.
Not all the fabric was to my liking! These I liked and would use.
These I wouldn't have any use for. Actually that frog fabric is a lined homemade curtain! I'm going to take the lining off because that I can use.
Mostly that Goodwill is really great. I think they get quite a few donations from local stores such as TJMaxx, Ross, and HomeGoods. A lot of times things are brand new! I took these pictures last week, this week I went twice and nothing there caught my eye. But that's the fun of going. I hope you enjoyed coming to Goodwill with me!
Be sure to stop by on Saturday for Part 2 of Lyn's guest post - Investing In Your Family. Have a great weekend!
