Got it at Goodwill!

I've been hoping for a mirror just like this! $5.99


So cute! I don't know if it works or not, but I love the face and the rugged wood. $2.99

This lantern has room for candles inside! I'm still working on cleaning it up. I cleaned the gunk off of all the glass panes, and polished the  outside until it glows, but inside along the bottom it's caked with a black grime that is really hard to get off. $2.99


This fabric had a purple tab, so it was 50% off. I think it used to be a curtain valance. It has a lovely sheen! I'm not sure what I'll use it for yet. $1.50


Off to the side there you can see the mystery object from yesterday. It's a really cute little planter! It has butterflies on it, so I had to get it :) $4.99

My favorite find :) I can't wait to find a plant to put in the basket! I'm going to put this by the fireplace. I just love it! It looks great with the clock and lantern too! $5.99 

Speaking of the fireplace...we stumbled across this slightly used set of cast iron fireplace tools! $9.99

I've already begun finding homes for my finds, but I'm running into a dilemma- the brown and gold versa the black and silver. I'm hoping to buy some spray paint, but I'm not sure I can bear to paint over the pretty wood and metal things. 

Have you found anything unexpected at your local thrift store? What's your favorite thrifty find?

  1. That bike planter is a great deal! I'm not sure exactly what my sister-in-law paid for the one we have in our house, but it was at least $20 (hers wasn't new either...). Great find! Seriously...I've GOT to go there with you!

  2. I think I need you to come with me to help me have a vision for all the treasures I am overlooking!

  3. Wow! Nice finds! Our Goodwill never has anything nice like this - I can usually find a few nice sweaters, but that's about it.

    Re: selling my August Break photos - the resolution on the images isn't really high, so I've been thinking of selling the images as notecards. Am looking into it as we speak!
