Goodwill Hunting Roundup

It's that time of month where I share my Goodwill finds.  I have continued to show restraint in my Goodwill purchases but I'll let you decide that for yourself after you take a look at my purchases from the past month.

My favorite find from this past month, a ceiling medallion for $1.99.  Ok, so it's made of plastic but that means it's light and will be easy to hang.  I might have to introduce this medallion to Annie Sloan, though.   


I amassed a collection of glass bottles.  Each was .49 cents.  For $2.50 I have a milk bottle and a few mason jars.  On my to do list, to make a mason jar sewing kit or a mason jar wedding kit.


This lamp is one of those things that made it into my cart and I debated buying or not.  For $3.99 I ended up deciding to buy it for Grace's room.  My hesitation was that it was made out of plastic and not glass.  Ironic since the vintage faceted glass lamp I bought in February was made of real glass and was a dollar cheaper.  Nonetheless, for a child's room, I think that this $4 plastic lamp will be perfect.


In addition to having a soft spot for glass lamps (and plastic ones), I am also drawn to vintage tins.  This large tin was .99 cents.  I love the spring feeling it has AND, I think it might be a perfect addition to Grace's birthday party (yes, I am planning her party already!).


In hopes of tempting Spring to bring us more warm days, I bought a new to me summer dress for $3.99.  I am ready to put my jeans away for the year and pull out my flip flops and summer dresses.


Finally, though not a Goodwill find, I collected 13 dainty, flowery handkerchiefs  from a local flea market.  Along with Spring, flea market season has also started.  What, might you ask, do I plan on doing with 13 vintage hankies?  You'll have to wait and see!


What great deals have you gotten this past month?

Until next month, happy thrifting!

  14. Love the hankies, I'm intrigued as to what you might be using them for. I have tried every where to get a ceiling medallion so I'm jealous even if it is plastic, Annie will do her work. Great finds.

  18. Your Goodwill finds are always so amazing! That dress is super cute, and a milk bottle!?!? Oh, the potential. I think that a plastic lamp for Grace's room make sense - if she knocks it over, it won't have to be "Caution-taped" off while you look for every small tiny shard of glass.

    What will you do with the tin? I'm dying to know!

  19. Looks like you had a great month at Goodwill! :) I love it all. I got some vintage hankies at the flea market, recently, too... they look a lot like your's. I'm using them in my daughter's party decor (and her birthday is in October, so don't feel badly for planning early! haha!)... I can't wait to see all of the finished products! :)

  20. I hope you are making a valance out of those hankies. I saw one and loved it. But of course if you use it to blow your nose I'd probably still think it was cute.
