Goodwill Finds Continued

This post will continue my previous post on my amazing finds at Goodwill this past weekend.  Okay, so remember, no hating and all prices I’m listing were an additional 50% off.

This great Paris lingerie plaque.  It was originally $39.99 at Bed, Bath & Beyond.  Then there was a sticker with $25.00 handwritten on it; maybe for a garage sale.  Goodwill marked it at $6.99, but, as you know, I paid less than that.

Also found this Paris sign plaque!  Brand new ~ look at the back {$2.99}.

Love it!  It’s already hanging in my powder room.

This heavy garden plaque {$3.99}, which I put right outside on my baker’s rack.

This little tray {$.99} which will also be getting a coat of paint and a new paper base.

This charging station {$5.99}, with the original Target tag still on it.

Finally, the piece de resistance ~ this huge key in a frame {$22.99}!  I heard angels singing and a spot of light hit it.  I had to look around to make sure someone didn’t put it there by accident.   This is really big and really heavy!

Luckily I was the first customer of the day and the only one in there at the time, so shoving, pushing and hair pulling wasn’t necessary {I was ready though}.  You know this would be, at the least, $49.99 at Home Goods.  At Goodwill it was marked $22.99 plus it was 50% off day!!   Can I get a fist bump!?!

I think I did really well this weekend and was so happy to find some things I had on my mental list.  Getting everything on 50% off day was a bonus!  The only thing they didn’t have was tiered baskets, so I’ll be keeping the Home Goods one I posted about a couple of posts ago.

Linking up with the following linky parties:

Glad there was no rough housing or hair pulling involved.
This past week I was stalking another GW shopper hoping she would put down a treasure. (She didn't.)
