Today's Goodwill Treasures 7/27

Everyone, you must go over to Rhoda's place to see what everyone has found. Her blog is at Thanks Rhoda for hosting this. We love to show our bargains! Look what I found below!!

First I'll show you these two little apple dishes, salad size, I got at Hobby Lobby in their 90% off aisle! I wish there had been four of them.

Yep, that's right $.60!!! A pretty good buy! I can see these fitting in with fall tablescapes too.

Here is my "haul" from Goodwill. (I had NO luck with garage sales today!) Below I show each item.

The little tea pot is the first thing I spotted today. It just holds one cup. Then I found those two dishes that almost matched perfectly! I love when that happens!

I thought these old dishes were pretty. They are like salad size. Lots of different choices for colored chargers under them. I got 4 of them at $1.00 each.

These are white plaster doves for the wall. I don't know . . . they "spoke" to me : )) (They were $1.50)

I like this little wire bird cage. I think it will look good with a fat candle in it. However, maybe I should paint it white . . . . (It was $1.50)

Yep, I like it painted white!

I was watching this lady in Goodwill. She drew my attention because she was on the phone the whole time talking. She'd pick up a few things, put them in her basket then change her mind and put them all back. Then she get some other things and do the same thing. Well, I saw she picked up this shabby chic tin basket I had missed!!!! so I just kept my eye on her and sure enough she put it back. That's when I pounced. Success!!!!! (It was $2.00)

I had to get the Thomas The Tank book for my granddaughter. He's her favorite at the moment. The clear jar I am going to put cornmeal in. I've been collecting them for my baking items and pastas. (The jar was $1.00 and Thomas was $.50)

Well, here is my big buck item from GW. It was marked $25. but with 35% off it was about $16. It's begging to be sprayed white I think. The mirror is beveled and I hope that smokiness I see is just dirt. I know just where I want to put it. I liked the shape of it.

Well, I hope you had fun looking for treasures too. Now, I'll go look at yours.
Happy Monday.
