This week's thrifty goodies

This going to be a loooong post! Heather and I went to Goodwill yesterday. I bought all of the following goodies, plus: 2 pair of capris and 2 sleeveless shirts for my FL trip. All of their clothes were $1.00

I was kind of disgusted with the prices on some of the stuff there. So many things were WAY overpriced. A candle holder for $7.00, a small(5X7) plaque for $5.00. A few other things I would've bought, if they weren't priced so high. Next saturday is 1/2 off day, I may go back and see if things I want are still there. They were packed yesterday, or I was going to take some pictures!!

These three were 50 cents each. I thought the striped one looked vinage and I always buy gold dishcloths, for some reason. The embroidered homespun piece is going on the kitchen counter.

I have always loved these wooden hearts. I have had many over the years. These will get a paint job and will probably hang on the outside door knob.

This little rooster decoration was 50 cents. Not sure where it's going!

THis little door handle was 60 cents. I am going to hang it from the handle on the fridge.

Love this rooster picture frame. It was $1.00 and I am going to put it in my hutch in the dining room.

I am going to put this outside right next to the door. It was $4.00.

Since I have many neck issues I use these roll pillows behind my neck. I have one in the bed and this on the back of the loveseat, where I always sit. It is brand new and was $2.00.

This cute, new potholder was 50 cents.

Aren't these cute! They're salt and pepper shakers. I bought them at Cracker Barrel for 99 cents each. The chick is yellow and the egg a pale green. I am going to go back and buy another egg to maybe use in one of the two items below.

this cute little basket was just unfinished tin. It was 50 cents. I painted it black before I thought to take a picture. I will use it for a candle or for the little salt and pepper shakers, from the above post.

I love this. It was $1.50. It is metal and the nest is wicker. I am going to paint the bird either red or black and the branches a darker green. I am going to put a tealight candle in the nest. The little egg salt and peppers would look cute in the nest, too! Hmmmmmmmm! LOL

Nice finds at GW! I love the little tin basket especially! I agree that sometimes things are just priced ridiculously high and then sometimes you find the best deals!

Have a great weekend!

Looks like a good day at the TS. Ours TS is getting very high priced these days too and the place is always packed to the gills with people. I think people are shopping there out of necessity and not hobby. I Goodwill is the worst for high prices and everyone is always commenting and raley do I find anything there. Usually I leave empty handed. The Salvation Army store is huge and great, I find most of my stuff there.

Woo hoo for the 72. It was so beautiful here this weekend also. I hauled in flat rock all weekend and I am beefing up my edging abit where it has sunk down into the ground over winter. Colder tom though boo hoo on that one.

Hope you have a good week,

Just be careful when putting a candle in that wicker nest. Wouldn't want that to go up into flames! I just loved all of your finds. Great prices to. Everything you got was so cute. I've been to a goodwill stores in my area to and I'm not really impressed with there prices but you found some good prices I see. I've seen some used sweaters for $15. I'm not going to pay that much for a used sweater. For a brand new one, maybe. Have fun painting your new treasures! ☺

Our GW is getting high too probably because of the economy and everyone shopping there now:)
