Goodwill Hunting Roundup

It's that time of month where I show off my Goodwill finds.  Ready to see what I have found?

First up, I came across this Kids Kraft kitchen for $3.99.  The only flaw, it was missing a knob on the back splash.


There was also the matching refrigerator for $2.99.  Which was in perfect shape.


The only problem, Grace has nearly this exact fridge and stove, which we paid full retail for her 3rd birthday.

Since I didn't want to feel the guilt I experienced last month, buying a dollhouse


When we already have a dollhouse...


I called a friend, who came over and bought the kitchen set herself...for $7!

So, instead of buying the kitchen, and justifying having 2 kitchens, I bought this little bunny for .99 cents.  If you haven't already guessed after Grace's bunny themed birthday party, we have a thing for bunnies.


This bunny sits atop a basket which opens.  Inside, another bunny.


And that little bunny, goes perfectly with the newest addition to Grace's dollhouse.


With temps tipping up to 100 degrees (!), it seems the perfect time to shop for ice skates.  I picked up this pair, on half off anything with a pink ticket day, paying only $2! 


And, thanks to Bliss Ranch, I am already thinking about Christmas (in July!).  I might break my never having made a wreath streak and make Bliss Ranch's Ice Skating Wreath.  I just need to find some red laces now.

I also bought a glass jar, with a cork stopper, for $1.99 and a complete Scrabble game $1.99.  I added the Scrabble tiles to the jar for instant home decor.


And lastly, not a Goodwill find, but rather a Home Goods purchase, I found the perfect sheets for Grace's new big girl bedroom.


Princess - Ballerina Toile.  A twin bed set for $19.99.

Until next month, happy thrifting!

  2. LOVE the sheet set! And can not get over the fridge and kitchen set-how cheap!!!!!
    My last stop to Goodwill was not that great. 2 red (plastic, perfect for little boys)ice cream bowls and one white plate(I collect white plates). Less than $2.
    I did find a great little side chest/table, but with limited space for now I had to pass it up.

  9. I have to echo what everyone else said about the kitchen... what a find! I'm so glad you found someone to buy it. I don't think I could have left it there myself ;)

    1. Thanks Janiene. I almost bought the kitchen set myself, I showed great restraint :)

  13. Seriously, if there was a thrifting competition you would so win; or maybe I just think that because as usual I would have taken home all your finds myself too!

    and the itty bitty rabbit hutch and it's occupants, awwwwwwww, SO cute!

  14. As always, you find the best stuff! I love those scrabble tiles in the corked jar. That rabbit hutch is also very cool. That will be a fun thing to decorate with at Easter!

  18. love the kitchen set! I am getting better in not getting too much stuff, or to get rid of something in exchange to a new "toy".

    ReplyDelete
  19. Looks like you found some great deals!!! I think if I started thrifting, the husband might object because I'd be bringing home all sorts of things with the intent to SOMEDAY use them.

  20. What awesome finds, especially that kitchen set. I wish our thrift stores had good stuff like that. I keep checking but haven't found anything amazing.
