Goodwill Finds

Finally!  My fourth trip to the Goodwill here in Ohio seemed to be the charm.  I finally found some things in their home section. I was starting to give up on this place!  Here’s a group photo ~ taken cloudy day and all.

I went with my daughter as she was looking for some sweaters to make a “pixie coat” and I had stuff to donate anyway.  Not thinking I’d find anything, I first came across this sweet little white creamer.

No sugar bowl, but that’s okay by me.  For $2.49, I grabbed it up.  Then I saw this cute little ceramic urn with a plastic Christmas tree.  It’s no bottle brush tree, but I thought I’d spray it with some adhesive and let the glitter fly.  It’s gotta wind up looking better than it does now.  For $1.99 I figured it was worth trying.

A small stand for $2.59.  Not sure what this might have been for originally, but I thought one of my cloches might fit on top of it.  I think this needs a quick spray paint and it will be good to go.

This great decorative box.  I thought this might work on either the top of my kitchen cabinets or my daughter’s so I picked it up.  A good buy, I thought, at $3.99.

I was really happy to see that they had some  stuff this time.  This Goodwill seems to be 75-80% clothes, where the one I used to visit on Long Island was about 50-50 for clothes/home stuff.  I told my daughter they should have more home stuff now ~ I’ve only dropped off donations three times already!

Hi Kathy,
Great finds that I know you will make even greater. I gave up on our GW here. It's just not worth the trip. Mostly clothes and pure junk.
I find more at our local Habitat.

Have a nice Thanksgiving.

hugs

Kathleen said...

Happy Thanksgiving in your new home! It was a gorgeous day here on Long island. I love your finds, ESP the little pitcher. The unknown thing looks like a candle holder for a fat candle.
Ok, out with the Cmas decos! :)
