I hit the mother lode at GW today!!

Justin and Jaiden were helping Richard with some stuff in the yard this morning, Heather was at work and Kylah was with her dad so Kamrie and I decided to go to get groceries. Of course, we had to go to Goodwill on the way. Today was 1/2 off day and I had a $5.00 off coupon that expires on the 30th. I got everything pictured here for only $20.00! I know, B A R G A I N!

This is my favorite purchase of the day. 3 black, wood framed mirrors with black chains to hang them by in graduating sizes! I want to do a wall in my living room with black items. Such as these, some black picture frames, the plaque below, etc. Only $2.00 for the set!

I love this plaque. I am going to put it in the living room when I redo it in the next few weeks. I am thinking about painting it. Maybe black.

My favorite Carol Burke scent "apple jack and peel". Brand new set. $1.50.

This is a candle in a log! I am going to put it on the deck.

I have always wanted one of these "Fanciful Flights" angels by Silvestri, but they are rather pricey. This one was only 50 cents! I know, I couldn't believe it either! It is titled "Zebra Shopper".

Large, like new beach towel. 50cents.

4 gorgeous napkins. $1.50 for all.

6 really nice cream napkins. $1.50 for all.

I really like these cute (Debbie Mumm?) halloween placemets. 50cents.

For some reason(maybe because I love bacon!!) I have always wanted one of these bacon presses. I am going to use it as a door stop. It is HEAVY.

This is going outside with something in it. I don't know what, yet.

This was kind of hard to photograph so you could tell what it is. It is a good sized wire rabbit with a raffia bow! $1.00.

Isn't this the cutest thing? It's a candle. It's Called "Aunt Sadie's beach in a can" premium scented candle. It smells like good suntan lotion! Kind of coconutty! I love the pictures on the can. $1.00

These marbles are going in the pond or in Mr. Crabs' bowl.

Love this piggy pillow! I think it's going on the deck.

Kamrie's purchase of the day! 25cents each.

Fabric for napkins. Click the picture to see the cute little sunflowers. 50cents.


This is metal with a mirror behind the scroll work. I think this is going in the bedroom when it gets redcorated in about 2 weeks. $2.00

I found this in the new section. Still in the original wrapper. I love this stuff! $1.50

This plaque is so retro! I am going to hang it on the grandkid's swingset. 50cents.

I think I am going to use this pillow somewhere outside, as well. $1.50

Did I lie? Nope, I hit the mother lode, for sure!!

Wow! You really mopped up! I stopped at GW, myself, this morning, but didn't do no where near as well! Love the fabric! It will make great napkins! And love the Aunt Sadie candle...very vintage looking! Kamrie did well, herself! LOL! Enjoy all your new finds! ~~Annie
