Wednesday’s Goodwill Finds/ Thrifty Thursday

I’m linking to these Thrifty posts.  Go on over and find out what other thrifty shoppers are finding.



Yesterday was Goodwill’s $2 skirt day, so after I drove to Broussard to unlock Andrew’s car ( he locked himself out at work) I stopped at the Goodwill there and found a few goodies.  I found 5 skirts for the girls.  Really cute skirts mostly spring  and summer skirts but a couple they can wear now.

Here’s my haul a couple of  jack o lanterns, 4 gold glasses, 2 diamond shaped dishes, white architectural piece, silver tray, fake grapes, 2 brass sconces, christmas apron and a gold decorative key.

Cute glasses and I now have 4 of these pretty little dishes.  I know someone who just bought a couple of these.  She should sell them to me then I would have six in my collection.

I’m going to put this on the patio wall.

Apron on headless model.  I love it!  Brand new tags still on it.

These are going to get a makeover and will probably end up in the master bedroom.

Tray after polishing.  It says Happy 40th Willliam and Millie.  You can’t tell from the picture but it’s footed. 


  1. Someone actually has three of them, they might be gifted to someone actually. Know anything about them? Great finds all the way around, that headless model looks fabulous in the apron!

  2. Awwwwwwww...Millie would be so happy to know that her tray is in good hands and will be used with love!! neat. And I figured that 'someone' was someone we know and love....just go to her house and sneak 'em out!!!
    Good Stuff.....soon as I can drive my car to my lakehouse, I'm gonna pack that pitcher up for ya...yeah, we're STILL flooded. No fun.

  3. That's quite a haul! You found some great stuff. I love all the cute aprons everybody's getting these days!
    Thanks for adding your link to my post; sorry you missed the cut-off; I added it for you.

  4. Nice haul! I especially like the silver tray, amazing what a little polishing will do to a piece of silver, isn't it?

  5. You got some wonderful deals!! My favorites are the piece for your patio wall and the apron. Precious! Thanks for linking up to Thrifty Thursday!
