Goodwill is the perfect place to find vases (and baskets).
I found this silver vase for $1.99. The shape off the vase has a loving cup feel.
I also found this glass vase for .99 cents which I customized and turned into a faux perfume bottle vase.
I found a shabby chic pink Threshold candle for .99. The lowest Target price was $2.98.
No trip to Goodwill is complete, for me, without looking through their coats.
I found this vintage trench for $4.99. I loved the label (and it was made in Chicago). I wasn't sure the style was completely me, especially for $4.99. I scoured this coat to see if there were any flaws, wear and or tear. Under the arm, I discovered the seam had come out under one of the arms. *If ever you find a missing button or a tear ask the manager if they will knock something off the price.
I brought the coat to a manager, who looked at the ripped seam and offered to take half off the coat.
For $2.50, I think this coat is definitely my style.
I get a lot of comments about how 'my' Goodwill has great prices. In reality, though, I only show my thrifted purchases AND I only make a thrifted purchase if it's a great price.
Last month, I stumbled across a Kids Kraft pink play kitchen in BEAUTIFUL shape for $7. This month, I stumbled across this Barbie house for $49.99. *I did not buy this Barbie house. I found it interesting, in comparison to the kitchen set I found, this was priced over $40 more.
I also came across this metal Rainbow Brite stove, which I also did NOT buy. It was fun to look at. The cost was $35.99.
Now it's your turn. What thrifted finds have you splurged on this past month? Or what thrifted finds did you pass up?
Until next time, happy thrifting.
