As I said in a previous post, we've just moved to this area recently and with painting, moving, painting, home school, painting, new pastor responsibilities, and painting I just went to the local Goodwill this past week. It is AHMAZING! And I do mean awesome. It's one of the biggest, cleanest, and most organized Goodwills I've ever been in.
That said, I must proclaim that I was somewhat "Shocked", yes, shocked with a capital S, at the prices. I went there to find the makings for a cloche. Seems that all DIY/design blogs have featured these and it's almost a requirement to make one if you are a DIY blogger. Luckily, I did find what I needed so that will be the topic of a future post.
However, as I was trying to find some things for another project I came across the perfect 2 piece bowl and lid set...think candy dish...It was a whopping $14.99 for the set! Hello?!?! Did you catch that? $14.99!!! This was at Goodwill! I admit it was a nice set with no cracks or scratches but I was not paying FOURTEEN NINETY-NINE!!! for it.
Also, I was looking for something to make a tray from for a centerpiece for my coffee table and came across a picture of Jesus praying in Gethsemane, the one that seemed to be on every living room wall in America in the 80's, in a white plastic frame. We're talking muy el cheapo. But it was the perfect size and depth for what I had in mind. $3.99!!!! Really?!?! Ok, so maybe I'm a cheapskate (I prefer frugal) but this was not worth $1.00 let alone $3.99. I really should've taken pics but I was so flabbergasted I forgot.
On the bright side, I did score a particularly fantastic chair for $9.99
What I'm perceiving it will be IS fantastic!!!
More to come on that later.
