Thrift Store Thursday



Holly over at Homebody hosts Thrift Store Thursdays. This is my first week participating but it is definitely right up my ally! So here is what I found this week.

On Tuesday I went to the Goodwill right down the road from my house. I had not been feeling well for a couple days and really felt getting out of the house would do me some good. Was glad I did!
Found:
1. A beautiful blue pot - $1.99
2. 5 - white un-used taper candles - $1.99 (I had been looking for some!! - I will show you why in a later post)
3. A bag of styrofoam eggs - $0.99 (used this for the button project below)
4. 2 - cream colored bowls - $0.99 each
5. A cream dish of some sorts - $0.59 (I used this to put our change in!)

Very successful day indeed :) You can see all the colors I use in my home in this picture I think :)





On Wednesday I was feeling better. I went with my cousin to run errands. Went by my favorite goodwill of all. No wonderful finds. I literally was pulling everything like the diaper bag and purses out of the cart thinking I must have gotten something else.. but there was nothing. Only two things on this trip - Only one pictured.

1. Magnetic "spice" holder - $3.99 (I think I will use this in my office for those little office things)
2. An elmo drum for my cousins daughter - $1.99 (Not pictured because it went right home with her :)
3. My cousin also bought a record (Actually two inside) - $0.99 (I am going to try to make into a frame for her...anyone know how to cut out the center???)
Hope everyone had a successful week of saving money at the thrift stores!

Hi Stefanie,
Yay! I can leave a comment! :)
You made some great choices. I'm overdue for a trip to my fave Goodwill, will have to stop by this weekend.
Have a great one!

that's a great blue pot. I always search the housewares section first. My favorite.

Sometimes I really find great stuff and sometimes (like this past week) I didn't find too much. I need to figure out when people bring in the most stuff and go after that. Good finds!

I am totally jealous of your spice holder! And you're the second person this week that I've seen has found one second-hand. Those little containers aren't usually cheap...I think one costs as much as you paid for the whole set.
Thanks for joining the party!

I'm a first time vistor, but I'll be coming back. I LOVE goodwill. I have an idea about your record. If you know anyone with a Cricut Expressions, there is a button on it that says multi-cut. It should cut it. And you can pick your size and where you want to cut it. Hope this helps.

Ooooooh. I love the spice holder. Lots of potential there!
