I often lament the fact that I hardly ever find anything at the Goodwill. Maybe every 20th trip or so I'll find something that's worth buying. I can't complain too much, though, because space in my house is limited and I have definite hoarder tendencies anyway, so I'm probably better off with things the way they are.
So what changed this weekend? I found several things at a couple of different Goodwills, something that never happens. Sorry for the varying quality of pictures; sometimes my phone takes really good pictures, other times not so much.
Shiny Brites! Can you believe it? First sighting in a GW ever. There's a nice purple one in the group (Hubby's fave color) so I think I'm going to keep these rather than resell 'em. Not sure how I feel about the netting, but I think it'll be okay. $3.00
Kromex! This little covered bowl fits the middle of a lazy susan I already have (also thrifted) that I actually use for entertaining, so I'm keeping it. $3.00
Pyrex! Made two huge mistakes with these suckers. First, I went out to the car to get my $5.00 coupon and while doing that, some old guy beat me to the biggest container of the set. Lesson learned: grab first. Later, I looked at a Pyrex book and the author said (and this is almost a direct quote) "Nobody collects this pattern because nobody likes it." Yikes. Well, I guess I'll eventually throw 'em up on ebay unless I hear from someone who wants them. Kind of a shame really. Though they're really not my style, wouldn't they have looked great in Betty Draper's knotty pine kitchen? $2.00 each for the small ones, $3.00 for the big one.
Hoping I can talk the hub into going thrifting again this weekend, as we have a couple new places to try. There's a Savers opening up in the area (the first one) and it's right on our regular thrifting route. Also, while we were doing the marketing, our favorite checker at Weis told us about a mission thrift store that I never knew about, so we're going to hit that one, too.
