Goodwill - Garage Sale Treasures



Thursday and Friday were great bargain hunting days. I found all kinds of treasures.

This is my favorite find. Thursday was $1 day on anything with week 30 tag at GW. I found this wonderful vase. Orange, how great is that.


This bag of rooster napkin rings in terracotta clay was also $1.


Add to that 9 books and I made out really good. I bought them for the color. I wanted some orange/red and yellow for the bookcases.


Friday morning I went to a couple of garage sales that looked interesting, and found quite a few things. Four blue and yellow placemats with cute little pockets sewed on and the matching napkins all for $2.


Four of these beige and pink Oriental napkins for $2. They are really large and made of such gorgeous fabric.


Four more blue and lime plaid napkins for $1.


Two huge dark blue Hydrangea long stems with the original price of $5.95 ea. for $2.


Three bright yellow candles for 10c each.


I found this frame for 15c and I had the little bunny print, so it worked out perfect.


Great fun to find new treasures without breaking the bank.

Thanks so much for stopping by, I always look forward to your visits.

  4. I can't imagine breathing and not getting excited over such bargains, can you? I really feel like I "beat the system" when I get a $10 item for $1 or less, don't you?

    Anyone can pay retail or charge it but the fun is in hunting and finding the bargain.

    Thanks for sharing and letting us all know it is available.

  5. Good Morning
    I love your great finds. I was just looking in the newspaper for estate sales today, but it is yard work day. Late summer clean up.
    Hope I can do some shopping next weekend.

  8. Hi Marty Sweetie...
    Looks like you hit the jackpot, at Goodwill and garage sales. Love the idea of the red and orange books for the bookcase to give color. Can't wait to see that.

    Sure did love the vase, such a great color with Fall coming and all. Love it.

    Napkins and placemats, so pretty, I actually need a cabinet just for my textiles I have accumulated so many.

    Beautiful share from a beautiful friend. Have a great weekend sweetie. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

  17. Love those books, Marty! The colors are great for decorating but I might read them, too. Martha Grimes is one of my favorite authors! Love your bunny print and it fits perfectly in the frame you found. The Asian napkins are gorgeous ~ I bet they'd make really pretty pillows.

  34. Marty...

    I just don't think our GW can compare to yours. I NEVVAH find things like you found on this trip. My big sis who lives outside of Nashville also finds amazing treasures at her GW. I'm no longer stunned when I come away empty handed on my shopping trips....

    I love your orange vase...and those Rooster Napkin Rings are just soo sweet.

    SCORE!

    Thanks for sharing with us~

    Blessings for a lovely Sunday~

  38. As soon as I saw that vase (not knowing the actual size of it of course) I immediately saw it as a water feature table fountain that would sort of match your home's region.

  41. One garage sale in our little town and it was a dud!

    I do love those bird napkins-what beautiful linens!!

    I'll be making jams hopefully tomorrow. We have choke cherries and elderberries that I picked Saturday and will be trying my hand at these new berries (for me)- hope my efforts will pay off in wonderfully delicious jams!
