Weekend Thrifting in Sultry June
Ohhhh it was a lovely tropical day and especially nice to be out after several days of rain.
My local Goodwill had, of course, raised their prices. I think it's because of the massive amount of shopping I have done there over the last year. They must feel like if I will pay $0.78 for something, surely I wouldn't object to paying $1.06.
The $1.06 price tag was on throw away bud vases, grocery store plastic storage, individual teaspoons, knives, forks etc. I'm simply stunned as I walk through and see the prices. I don't think there was anything lower than $1.06
But there were bargains to be had.
My favorite item to buy is a pottery mug and this one was especially nice...the aqua and brown is gorgeous, the handle is large, the rim TIPS OUT...and the line drawing takes me to someplace interesting.
I loved having my coffee in it this morning,
Tie Dye Coasters!
Not just any coasters, but the coasters that actually absorb all liquid but doesn't get the table wet. $1.06 for all four. They look brand new.
Inspirational Garden Stones
They were $1.06 each but are deeply etched and a nice size. They won't be hard to read, scattered about in the front garden bed.
A rusty tin angel
I plan to brush it with a bit of turquoise paint to highlight the pattern.
$.50 no..not Goodwill. Yard Sale!
That isn't all I brought home but just a sample.
