I ♥ Goodwill 4.28.11

goodwill4.28
I’ve hit a Goodwill dry spell. This is pretty normal. I will find lots of goodies one week and then not find anything for the next. With all of the Pottery Barn finds I had a couple of weeks ago it was bound to happen. 

Sooo, I’ve decided to share with you some of the other things around my house that I have found at Goodwill in the past. I was surprised myself at my Goodwill inventory. It makes me smile though because I think of all of the moola I’ve saved!

I found this mini Radio Flyer wagon a while back for my little guy’s room. Think it was like 3 or 4 bucks. (Monkey sold separately.)

This little traffic light lights up and changes colors. It was $3.99.

I saw this little car pillow at Target a few years ago…think it was around $10, so this was a steal at Goodwill for only 99¢.

This copper tin is going to get a fresh coat of white paint. I’m thinking about putting it in our Master Bathroom with some hydrangeas in it. It was also 99¢.

This piece of coral I got for $2.99 is actually a tea light candle holder from Party Lite.

I love the color of this basket I found for $1.99. I’m using in our bathroom as a magazine holder.

This basket was $3.99. Right now it sits in our pantry and holds all of our excess shopping bags.  (I’m always forgetting my reusable bags.)

We found these Target beanbags at two different Goodwill stores but they were both new and each were $7.99. (I think they are about $20 at Target.)

Hopefully my luck turns around soon…but that’s part of the fun. You never know what you’re going to find and when it’s going to be a good day.
Happy Goodwill hunting! :)

  2. It must be the season. I haven't found any good deals at GW for the past couple of weeks. I love the pics of your little ones in their beanbag chairs. I especially love those bare feet. :)

  6. Those are some good finds - I know what you mean about a dry spell though! I went yesterday and got a cute clock that I want to hang as part of a gallery wall, a picnic basket for $3.00 (for some reason, I've been wanting an old-fashioned picnic basket lately...why? I don't know? I don't go on picnics?), and a white ceramic decorative piece. Love Goodwill!

  10. Wow-you've scored some great deals! I've got my wish list ready and will be hitting a few Goodwills this weekend! Hope I get lucky too!! Enjoy your vacation!! So jealous-smile!

  11. Well, I'm awfully jealous of your finds. Your blog inspired me to go to Goodwill today and all I found was a lot of broken and/or overpriced crap. My daughter fell in love with a keyboard missing a key for $6 which I showed them the broken part and they took $1 off. And my son got an old soccer ball for $2.99. I feel ripped off actually. I'll stick to Craigslist and the roadside for my bargains.

  12. I've noticed at my local Goodwill always has some brand new Target-brand Circo things with the price tags still on them. I believe Target donates their clearance items that they can't sell in-store to Goodwill. That's fine with me!
