Goodwill Goodies

So, I haven't been to any garage sales since it's winter and I don't get to go to the thrift store as much as I use to because I don't like to get the baby out in this cold. But last night I had to go to the Goodwill to try and find things that my daughter could wear in her school play as a costume. I thought I would share some of the gems that I seen.


First I will start with something that I thought was adorable.


I love creative ice cream sundae bowls/glassware. I don't know why, as I really don't eat alot of ice cream. These were by Oneida and selling for $1.99 a piece. The plates next to them looked like dessert plates that went with these also by Oneida selling for $2.99 a piece. This Goodwill is expensive and no sales or half off days.




Next Up...



I don't know why I took a picture of this. I think it's because whenever I see items like this, I wonder who bought it? Why did they buy it? I wish I could know the stories behind the items.


 This duck looks so sad



I had to take a picture of this because it still had the garage sale sticker on it for .10 cents but the Goodwill was selling it for $1.49. I guess if you snooze you lose.



This made me laugh. I think it's one of those plastic bag holders lol.

  2. funny - The Goodwills near me are also kind of expensive for a thrift store! Like you said they never have sales, etc. I tend to only shop at the more local thrift stores now. You can truly find steals & deals at them! :)

  4. I think the duck is smiling!

    I agree, I think if GW is going to put a higher price on things they need to at least remove the garage sale tags and the Dollar Store stickers!

  5. Oooo! I would totally buy that Texas Short Beer mug, and here's why. 1. I am from Texas. 2. It would hold lots of beer. 3. I would be the hit of the party! Nuff said :)

  7. Like your comment about the .10 cent pail. My local thrift stores will mark up a Forever 21 blouse and leave the designer labels at the normal going rate. Go figure!
