Thrifty Treasures from Good Will

You all know how thrift stores and Good Will sometimes have great items, and often, not so much!  I was in Good Will shortly after Christmas, and ran up on a wonderful bargain.  Are you familiar with Thirty One brand bags?  They are rather expensive, and in fact, that's why I have never bought them. That day, I started my search on the miscellaneous aisle where you find all kinds of items, and on the bottom shelf sat this wonderful big bag that looked like brand new.  There was glitter in the bottom, so I think someone might have donated Christmas decor, and probably did not mean for the bag to be donated.

 My Christmas dishes fit in perfectly.
$2.52  (retails on their website from $50. - $60.)

In addition to that, I found 2 candle holders that match my Christmas dishes.  They were a total of $2.42.  They sell at Replacements for $21.99 each.  The photo below is from Replacements.  My candle holders are already packed away until next Christmas.

So all this for $4.94, plus tax, with a retail value of around $100.00!  I call these great finds!
