My go to Goodwill store has undergone a makeover. To most, the makeover was probably appreciated. The aisles were widened. More shelves were added. Things became organized.
I have determined part of my thrifting success could be attributed to my desire to dig or hunt for what could be buried in piles. With organized shelves, no digging is required. All the fabulous finds are right there for all to see.
I had considered simply showing you my 'flea market find'...a vintage porcelain vase (?), made in England (and we all now, anything made in England has to be fabulous, right?). It was missing a lid but when filled with flowers, that doesn't really matter, does it? The tag said $7 but at flea markets you rarely pay what is on the tag. We paid $6 for this sweet vase.
Close to giving up on Goodwill altogether, this past Friday night, I dragged my handsome husband over there. Within 5 minutes, I spent more at Goodwill than I have all year.
I came across this bunny deviled egg platter for $3.99. I remember seeing it being sold at Target just before Easter for $17.99. I saw it shortly after Easter, on clearance for $9.99 and still left it sitting on the shelves. Well, when this bunny platter followed me to Goodwill with a $3.99 price tag, I could no longer play hard to get.
Moments later, I spied this green glass footed bowl for $2.99. It has a vintage vibe to it, though, I am not sure if it is actually vintage or not.
For $1.99, this vintage floral platter made it's way into my hands. Sweet yellow flowers go around the border of this platter. (Curious why I am collecting so many dishes? I have another party to plan!).
The real reason I dragged my husband to Goodwill was because I had spotted this vintage desk through the window. It was $39.99 so I hemmed and hawed about whether we should or shouldn't buy it.
We walked around the store for a few minutes while I thought about the beautiful details like the dovetailed drawers, the curves and the beautiful wood detail.
Before we decided to buy it (which we did eventually do)...
We came across a headboard for a twin bed. Grace is still in a toddler bed, which she is QUICKLY outgrowing. Though this headboard wasn't quite what we had in mind for her, it had potential $14.99
So, for $14.99 we decided to add this solid wood headboard to our cart as well.
