I had wanted to post the pics of my little goodwill shopping excursion on the same day I posted about going originally, but that didnt happen, sorry. For some reason my camera is not wanting to download pics onto the computer, at least I can't figure it out but whatever, lol. I finally decided to take the pics with my cell phone, so you will have to bear with the not so perfectly clear pics. I want to start off by saying that the line to get into GW on 1/2 price Saturday was not bad, I was #6, and what a friendly bunch of people, very talkative and pleasant. And NO the picture in my last post of GW was NOT my GW, for sure, that one must be in a really nice neighborhood, definitely not mine,HA.
I was able to nab a few wooden candlesticks to add to my very small but just beginning collection. The large brown stick was 1.25, but the three small ones were $1 a piece, seemed kind of high, but I liked the colors and thought they would add a summery look to my kitchen, I just need to get some candles.
I then got excited when I spotted some pretty all white bowls with a fruit pattern. A good friend of mine had given me some very large pretty plates that looked very very similiar to these bowls. I was excited to add the bowls and for only .50 a piece I grabbed them. Next I found some cute little I am going to call them individual souffle bowls. I have a french onion soup recipe and a dessert recipe that calls for bowls like these, the were only .50 each too, so in the cart they went.
I then found a cute little heart shaped basket with a red and white check fabric. I had a luncheon for all my girlfriends this past Valentines day and did a red and white check theme, so for .50 I was not going to pass up his basket, I will use it for next year's Friend Appreciation Day! The other basket just looked lonely sitting on the shelf after I nabbed the heart shaped one, so I took it too, although I have absolutely NO idea what to do with it?!?! But it was just $1.
I rounded out my shopping trip with a nice cookie sheet for .25, a cheese grater for for $1 and a perfect red dust ruffle that will look great in one of our guest rooms, it was only $1.50 with the 1/2 price sale. So all and all I think I had a pretty good GW experience and got ALOT of stuff for $15.00 Some prices seemed kind of high while others seemed really good, I guess it is all in whole holds the pricing marker! I will definitely go back and would like to try some other good will and thrift stores in other areas of town. Question?? Does anyone know if Good Will takes what they get from one drop off spot and only puts it in 1 GW location or do they have a central location and then disperse the items?????
What have you gotten at your Goodwill, thrift store, or garage sale???
Thanks for stopping by! Sue
