1 Goodwill bargains

So, I have been a goodwill/thrift store shopper since I was very young.  Now that we're close to purchasing a home, I may turn this into an addiction.

In our area, we have designated days for 50% off certain tags. So I bought a few things...
First up is some holiday stuff, which will probably go straight to storage containers once we move in.

This charming Christmas cup.
 Originally $0.99 sale $0.50

A light-up pumpkin, already black.
Originally $1.99 sale $0.99

Here's a cute candle holder, I saw a few more (a few days before) but the others seemed to have sold.
Originally $0.49 sale $0.25

Two dazzling heart dishes, which will probably be used for Valentine's Day.
 Originally $0.99 sale $0.50 each

Next are some house items. Two medium bowls.
Originally $0.99 sale $0.50 each

A white candlestick. I was thinking of using it underneath a plate to make a lovely cake plate.
Originally $0.49 Sale $0.25

A cute brown polka-dot hot chocolate cup (my husband and I both don't drink coffee).
 Originally $0.49 sale $0.25

A pink block vase.  I'm not generally a huge pink fan, but I'm sure it will serve as a cute pop of color.
Originally $1.99 sale $0.99

My favorite item of the day- a stunning candle holder. I want to paint the silver parts black.  I think it would play off the 'marble' base quite well.  I may add some embellishments like white beads.
Originally $3.99 Sale $1.99

My second favorite item of the day was this adorable, dainty flower dish. To give an idea of the size, it would probably fit in the center of a saucer plate.  It was the only item not on sale.
Price $0.49

Finally, the clothing items, I couldn't resist.

A red sweater. A cherry skirt.  When picking these two out, I didn't realize they would coordinate so well.  I was planning to use the skirt for over my swimsuit in the summer. I had them model on the mannequin (which I'll describe someday soon).
Sweater- originally $2.99 sale $1.50
Skirt- originally $3.99 sale $1.99

Originally $3.99 sale $1.99

I can't wait to clean the items up and get my hands dirty.  Now only find the time...

The grand total:
Fifteen items for $15.35, not too bad huh?

  1. If your abilities to take things at the thrift store and make them into cool things is anything close to how you saw your house before you remodeled it, you're going to be totally set.

    You and your boyfriend seem to have a lot of vision. That's the coolest!

    I wish I had that talent!
