Goodwill Goodies

I've gotten some goodies at Goodwill lately. Yesterday at the Rocky Mount Goodwill, I bought a long black coat that's made of pure silk. Original price tag was still on it—$159, then reduced to $79, then to $59. Goodwill had it for $20 but had just reduced it to $15. I figured, what the heck!

Cat hair won't show on it!

Now, where I will wear something designed to be worn over evening wear, I don't know. But I will look darn elegant doing barn chores in it.

A week ago, I bought some stoneware for $10.99 at the Westlake Goodwill. The 7 plates, 6 bowls, and 7 salad plates were all taped together, so I couldn't see who made it until I got it home.

Turns out it's the Heritage pattern by Brick Oven. One plate on one of the replacement China sites goes for $5.99. Guess I got a good deal. Plus the colors match my kitchen floor.

I'm happy with both my finds and I've done my part for recycling.

I have been to both Goodwills and found great deals too. At the Westlake Goodwill, the entire store heard my son yell out from the back corner, "Look at this HUGE CD!" I turned and aisle to find him holding - you guessed it - a record!!

I think I laughed with a perfect stranger for at least five minutes.

I didn't know you had these other blogs! I also didn't know you like to shop good will and yard sales - both are just too much fun! We've found some real treasure there too!

I've got to get there. Could be trouble.
