Goodwill Comes Thru Again

Seems like Goodwill and grocery shopping go hand in hand for me.  I always have to stop by and see what's new, and especially when it is 25% off Senior day.

On my last trip I found quite a few treasures.  Still finding gorgeous trays and for $3.99 less the 25%, I had to have this one.

See how pretty it is all cleaned up.  Big enough to hold a vignette also.


I am still trying to buy one Christmas gift a month so when the holiday rolls around I will be way ahead of the game.


This beautiful shell orb is perfect for someone on my gift list.  So pretty.


I love it when I see the perfect treasure to fill the voids in my silver collection.  I didin't have a candelabra, and this one is nice and big, and really heavy.  Also I can always use another silver wine glass.  They are such fun to decorate with.  The wine stem was only $1.99, and it gleams with just a little polish.

Look at the price on the candelabra, and with 25% off, can't beat that.


In yesterday's post I showed you my wine coaster with bottle stopper holder that I found on this same trip.  Love it when I find an unusual piece.

So fun to play with new treasures.  Now I need to create something new with the rest of my finds.  Come back for Table Top Tuesday, I have big plans for some more of my silver.

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

  5. What a great idea to start Christmas shopping now and doing it at Goodwill. I really have to take time to go there and the Salvation Army too more often. We have both here.

  8. I have the same way of thinking ~ Grocery shop and Goodwill shop; though I haven't been to ours in about 2 weeks, hopefully I'll get a chance to stop this week, as I know there will be some special treasure waiting to come home with me :)

    Warmest hugs, Brenda

  31. Marty,

    You have the best luck at Good Will. I went today at lunch, but did not buy anything. They had a little bowl I liked and a couple of cook books, but I talked myself out of them and came out empty handed.

    Blessings,
    Kathy

  35. OMG, Marty, you must be walking on air right now! All that silver for so cheap? It is all lovely. I think I had better hit our St. Vinnies a bit more often. We have a GW in Bend, but I never go there because it is really expensive. I used to love the ones in Eugene and Springfield though.

    Take care,

    Kathy

  39. Wow! Your finds are really beautiful! I love the platter and the wine coaster. I love the silverplated footed platter that I found this week at the SA. I am going to be going more regularly to both GW and SA

  40. Marty! You have a knack for hunting down treasures. I love the coaster with the tine stopper holder. I've never seen anything like that...so cool!

  43. Great finds and good prices! My
    GW(s)don't have prices that reasonable!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Great find Marty! Silver and shells are right up my alley. I have 2 of the shell balls and I love them. I have one in a silver compote.

    ReplyDelete
  45. That tray is amazing. I haven't had as much luck recently with silver at the thrift here. :)

    ReplyDelete
  46. I am sure GW knows when you are coming (without a friend) and runs and puts all their prettiest silver on the shelves so you will pick it up and give it a good home!

  50. Wonderful finds Marty! Is it just me or does your heart just soar when you get a tarnish platter like your first one and then clean and polish it up and it instantly becomes this stunning sparkling beauty!Love it!

  51. Oh Marty, what beautiful silver finds! I need to make a trip to Good Will. Can't wait to see the vignette you create with your new finds.

  52. I was there yesterday and I saw a tray with handles and I hesitated and then walked out without it....hmmm. After seeing your pretty set up on your tray I should go back and see if it is still there!

    ReplyDelete
  53. You are so lucky! Your Goodwill store is fabulous. Ours is not so hot. Would you do some silver shopping for me?
    One thing I do is stocking stuffer shop throughout the year. I look for 4 stuffers and 2 elf presents each month. It sure saves on the hustle bustle of the holidays. Keep your resolve of a present each month!

  54. you know I have some MAJOR Silver Envy right now!!!!!!!!!!

  55. Boy Marty you sure did hit it right this week. I was at SA yesterday and all I got was two napkins. I'm bummed, I need to come junkin with you.

  59. I love silver trays. In fact, I seem to be starting a collection of my very own =) Have a great day Marty!

    ReplyDelete
  60. Marty, you're going to bring silver back so big we'll all be scrambling to find it. I love the tray with the ruffled edge. Do you think silver could possibly increase in value and go the way of gold? I wouldn't doubt it.
    I'm going to order my Tarn-X off Amazon.

    ReplyDelete
  61. That's a complete bargain for the candlabra. I can hardly believe my eyes!

    Well done you!
