Thrifty Treasures

A new GoodWill store opened in our county last week.  It's the first one close by, and on the opening day, it was jam packed.  There was even a wait for a shopping cart.  It was very hard to get around to shop, and the check out line went all the way around the store!  The store was filled with gorgeous items, and I managed to get my hands on a few bargains!!  For around $ 28.00, this is what I came home with.

This turquoise flower pot,

 this colorful bowl, just right for the season,


 this picture with fall colors (excuse the glare),

another white candlestick to add to my collection,

 this long red and white table runner,

 a sweet acorn dish, and 

this cover for my lap top.  It was new with tags for just over $2.00.

So, now I have this huge GW about 4 miles from my home!!  I can't keep bringing things home until I get rid of some of my old stuff.

I have plans to clean out my closets, cabinets, and decorations bins!  I seriously need to get rid of some STUFF, and I am going to try to do that in the next few weeks.  Wish me luck!  I want to try to downsize my 'stash' to one bin for each holiday/season!  I probably have 10 bins with Christmas alone.  I'm going to let my family and friends go through and get what they want, then donate the remainder.
