Here are a few recent finds finds from Goodwill and a recent community yard sale.
We are linking up to Thrift Store Thursday at Homebody
and Thrifty Thursday at Tales from Bloggeritaville this week.
Make sure to go and check out all the fun bargains.
A fantastic sweater for my daughter. It appears to be vintage, but who knows.
We had just been shopping for me and Chloe commented on a beautiful sweater display. It was beautiful with camel and pumpkin colored sweaters layered with gorgeous scarfs with golden threads weaving though each one. She and I love a good display--we are both such visual people. She particularly commented on a beautiful camel sweater with large buttons. Not an hour later we were working our way through the racks at GW and found this almost identical sweater. The price in the store was $48.00 or $58.00 and we picked it up for $4.96.
Her old navy top($4.96 w/tags) and khaki belt ($2.96) came from Goodwill. We found the same belt in a local store the same day for $16.00. I won't comment on her non-thrifty jeans or shoes, except to say that she can only wear about two brands of jeans (Levis or Gap) out there and they are not thrifty. Where is the best price for Levis? These are the ones from department stores, not Target. They are juniors, low rise and petite. Madness!
A rattan lamp base.
It vaguely reminded me of the rattan jars (pictured below) in the Ballard Designs catalog. Honestly, no idea what I will do with it, but I picked it up for $1.00.
The stool that the lamp base is sitting on is a project that is not quite finished. I need more staples for my staple gun to finish it off (story of my life). This is a cast iron stool that I bought for $5.00. The lady was holding strong at $7.50. A couple of hours later she took $5.00.
I am covering the top with a piece from a coffee bag that Victoria and I found at a garage sale. The guy was asking $5.00 for it but let us have it for $3.00. Chloe and I separated the back and the front and my sis-in-law is going to take the front half for a project.
Four science books for less than a dollar since I had a big hand full of books and she gave them all to me for $1.00. The others are already on a shelf somewhere. : )
I also picked up a beautifully illustrated Romeo and Juliet in this stack. Fabulous deal for $1.00.
Have a happy Thursday. The weekend is right around the corner. I have two newborn photo sessions----very exciting.
