Goodwill Treasures

I was shopping at Big Lots the other day for Christmas decor and Goodwill is right next door...just had to drop in...sooooo glad I did...found these little goodies! I will post later about the cute Christmas trees that I found at Big Lots...they are soooo precious! I will be attending the "Thrift Store Thursday" party with Holly@Homebody...please come by to see every ones thrifty finds.



Love "milk glass"...this vase was only .99 cents...my kind of price!


Only .69 cents for this "H" letter...my daughter Haley is using scrapbook paper and mod podge to cover it...I'm sure it will be so cute in her new room!

You got two great deals! And thanks for the tip about the Painter's tape at Sherwin Williams. I will look for it and give it a try! Thanks!

I love milk glass and if I had a place to put it, I would collect it. Your piece is so pretty!!

My daughter just starting doing the scrapbooking letters. It is fun and easy. So many types of paper to choose from!

Thank you for the award!! I will include it in my next post.

Big Lots next door to Goodwill, aren't you lucky! I look for milkglass too; love the H, I'm sure it will look even cuter when she's done. Wow, you got out of there for under $2, nice work!
Thanks for joining TST :)

You picked up some good things. I would love to find one of those big letters for my family room. I'm holding off thrifting until my daughter and sil come up over Thanksgiving.

Hi Linda, I LOVE your blog! Anything about decorating facinates me (because I can't do it) and I absolutely love vintage and antique pieces. I've enjoyed reading through all your posts and look forward to seeing more.

All the best,
Anne

Hi Linda, so good to hear from you. Same here, nothing much at Big Lots or Goodwill, But I DO love to dig thru junk at any ole flea market. I'm looking forward to your "Coastal Christmas". Be sure and let us see how you are decorating for the Holidays!
hugs,
Debra

Deb said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog, Ms. Linda. Hope you have a blessed Sunday, too!

Alicia said...

Great deals! Don't you love it when they put Big Lots and Goodwills next to each other? Perfection...lol. I'm waiting for my mom to get home, she went to have breakfast with my sister then I'm going to try to convince her that we need to go thrifting.

Happy Sunday and by all means, get some flannel sheets, you will love them!

ooh, im a bit jealous of the H - i am attempting to do the entire alphabet in my twin girls room -- i have about 6 letters to pick up yet -- trying to do it all from garage sales, thrift stores, story books and home goods for some reason has them really cheap from different companies - can't wait to get it finished!
