Recent Goodwill and Thrift Finds~

Don't you just love a goodwill or thrift store hunt? I fear it is in my blood to stay.
I found both of these new pillows at the Goodwill.
The green one has a down pillow form inside.
I intended to iron the bow on the
ivory linen pillow, but didn't get that done yet.
love them~
The ivory linen pillow has a flap and then ties...
too sweet~ I found this brown transferware bowl recently at a thrift store. The buttons inside came from an antique store and were very inexpensive I might add~ I also love linen skirts. This one will be a favorite ~
A large fleur- de- lis metal cone ~
I have been looking for some of these old spools to wind
lace on and found them Monday at the grand opening.
{sorry for the camera glare}

Oh my goodness!! No carts in site
when I got there so I carried a basket around
that got rather heavy. I went up to the front
periodically to check on a cart and never did
get one. The lines were soooooo long !
I didn't bother to look at the clothes that day
because it was just too busy!
I stopped yesterday after visiting my mom
and found the linen pillow and skirt.
Yay!! What have you found recently at the Goodwill
or thrift store?

What nice treasures! Good for you. There's nothing like picking through a bunch of "stuff" to find some goodies just ready to take home. ; )

All your finds are fantastic! The pillows look so great together. And the wooden spools, buttons and brown transferware -- wonderful stuff! We have a Friday souk around here where you can find used items -- but nothing like the consignment and thrift stores in the States. Blessings to you, :) Tammy

Love your pillows, Sandi. I also like the transfer ware bowl. I'm going to have to check out our local stores (we have more than a few around here!)

Deanna Joy said...

Lovely finds, Sandi! I finally made it to our new Goodwill store yesterday...right while they were unloading a truck...woo hoo! LOL I scored a cool round coffee table that swivels, a white chippy (turquoise and green showing through) wash stand (I think..LOL) with some cute detail and trim work, seven Staffordshire Bouquet (by Johnson Bros.) pattern bowls, four cream soup plates (exactly like some Mom had) and four gold crushed velvet cloth napkins. I LOVE thrift stores!!!
