New Treasures


Of course I stopped in at GW again on my way to grocery shop, and I found a couple of fun treasures.

 I love pretty planters, and I thought this one was so pretty.  Loved the colors. and the shape.  It was $3.49, so I called it mine.

The colors are perfect for my house and the detail is so pretty.  I also love the crackling on this piece.


A little dress form is always fun.  I may add some stain or paint to this one, but it will be fun to work in a vignette for the bathroom.  For $1.99 I just had to have it.

I just can't seem to pass up a white pitcher.  This one is quite large, about the size of the old Koolaid pitchers.  It was $2.99.

Salad plates are always great to mix with other pattern dishes and these are the neatest shade of an orangy-rust. 

See that price, and they were half off of that.  35c isn't bad.


I am linking to the following parties:

Thrifty Thursday @ Tales From Bloggeritaville
Junkin' Finds Friday @ A La Carte
Frugalicious Friday @ Finding Fabulous
Flaunt It Friday @ Chic On A Shoestring Decorating

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

  2. Hi Marty, You always find the best things at GW! Everything is wonderful but I especially love the pitcher. I can't believe your goodwill sells things for 69 cents. The cheapest price on anything at our local stores is $3.49...even stuff marked from Dollar Tree! Great shopping.
    Hugs,

  8. Marty,
    "Mr. Ed" and I went bargain hunting at our local Good Will on Monday. I found a few items, but I think I now know why you are such a lucky lady!Frequency! I need to go more often. As we were going OUT. . .more treasures were coming IN the door! I'll let you know if I'm on the road to better bargain finds, soon!
    Fondly,
    Pat
    P.S. The white pitcher just needs that darling little grin draw on the side! Kool~aid for sure!

  16. Gorgeous find Marty, specially that planter bowl... I love it very much, colour pattern, design, shape all are so perfect and sync with each other... In my opinion it is #1 find, than the pitcher... love the serene whiteness of it, it is simply the elegance...

  24. Great finds Marty, much better than I did yesterday at Goodwill. All I got was a doggie poop bag holder.

  25. Great finds! The planter is beautiful. I have that exact little dress form. I think I got it at Michaels years ago. It has traveled around my house over the years, and right now it is sitting on a shelf in my closet holding my most often used necklaces. Love that white pitcher. CAS

  26. I know I've said it before, but you have the best Goodwill. I love everything you found.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Wow! Your Goodwill is amazing. Ours always seems so overpriced. I love all that you got. That big white pitcher has so many uses - filled with an arrangement or filled with a beverage.
