Goodwill Christmas Decorating

I live near two Goodwills and one of them is really not very good.  However, I was nearby when I was running errands, so I popped in.  So Happy I did.  I found some real treasures.


All three pieces.  The Carolers and the lighted tree.  Perfect for my desk area.



 These two will reside in the kitchen when I get the rest of the decor down.  Mrs. Santa has a battery and she moves her head and swings her candle.  Cute, cute, cute.
  

I just had to have this fun little mouse.  She is just adorable and her dress is so poufy, with a cute little apron and bonnet with lots of packages, holly and candy canes and stockings on them.


 Isn't her tail the cutest. (Can you see DH in the background.  He's reading a book and staying out of the way. lol)


My last treasure is the brother to the reindeer I found at the other Goodwill.


 Now Ta-Da, look at the total.  $25.94 for all six pieces.  They are all really great statement pieces and I think the price is unreal..


If I keep this up, I won't even have to get all the stuff out of the attic.  Just kidding, I think I need all that stuff too.  lol    (Well DH got the ladder out and climbed up and brought all the boxes down, so now I really have to get my act in gear.)

  3. Oh my goodness, you have once again found the coolest things at GW. Those carolers are just the cutest -- I love the sweet faces! You know, I have the sister to your cute little mouse. Mine isn't dressed for Christmas, but wears a fluffy little red polka dot dress & lacy collar. She's been with me for 25+ years. I refer to her as my "mouse-maid," but she doesn't really do too much to help me with the cleaning. Her role is to just look cute!

  4. Marty, those are the cutest carolers and little mouse I've ever seen! I love Goodwill, too! In fact, I have a lot of clothes to drop off at one today, so I think I better take a look around inside the store while I'm there! :)

  5. How cute, Marty! I love those carolers! I always stop and look at carolers wherever I am. In fact, I think Christmas Tree Shop had a nice selection. I may have to go back and check the price on those. My Goodwill will have a lot of Christmas stuff come January. I plan on purging those things I haven't used in the last few years and donating them.

  7. I am always amazed at the things you find at your GW!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I LOOOOVE all these pieces! The carolers are adorable! I have a set of hand made knitted) mice that I bought from a girl at bowling about 100 years ago. They are Joe's favorite Christmas decoration. He gets them out every year and this year he has them downstairs in the family room. Have a great weekend, decorating:)XO, Pinky

  9. Right up my alley lady! Love a good bargain ;) I was out thrifting yesterday and ours had pre-lite assembled trees for $15.00 and some of them were really, really nice! It took all I had not to buy one (that I don't need) LOL! Everything is already looking so festive. I guess if the hubby got the stuff down, you have to crack into right?

  35. Marty,
    DH is a Wise Man to stay in his chair while you are decorating, dear friend!!! I'm reading this post to "Mr. Ed"!!!
    Your Goodwill Managers could come to Kansas and lend our stores a helping hand!
    I'm thrilled at all your thrifty finds and agree they need to come live with you in your home decor @ A STroll Thru Life! Thanks for sharing!!!
    Fondly,
    Pat
