Thursday Shopper #9

Good morning Dahlings!

There’s a BUZZ of excitement today
a NEW GOODWILL is opening!!
Be still my heart!
YOU know, better than anyone, that TS 
LOVES the thrift store!
Where else would she have found that lovely retro sheath 
and those long gloves she loves?

Back soon with the results!!!

Psssst….Miss Flibbertigibbet was recently featured at

Hello Dahlings!
TS is back and soaking her (perfectly manicured)
toes in a much deserved  tub!
 The new Goodwill was QUITE busy
as you can see by the line we were in….

About 15 people in front of me feeding to three registers. 
It moved pretty well since there were almost as many Goodwill employees as customers. 
I love that part of the new openings….
there’s always someone to carry furniture and find prices!

Here is what I found today…

a very tarnished silverplate tray with handles
this will make another lovely Elegant Magnet Board
for the shop

I cleaned it up just a bit so you could see the potential

Beautifully ornate edges

Another Redmon Picnic hamper…I sold one of these last month
they’re very collectible

A nice plaque

And finally…the absolute best thing I’ve found in awhile….

The color is soft aqua…you know I love THAT

 It’s metal with a sweet pierced edge

And a sweet little knob and painted pink rose

What could it be?

That squealing sound is me……
Is this too cute?
A vintage metal medicine cabinet

It’s in such great condition too!

And that little handpainted design

What is that sticky residue?
Oh, yes…the price tag….
So, you want to know how much I paid for it?








that would be eight dollars and twenty five cents
eight hundred and twenty five pennies

Oh yes….this was  GOOD day at GOODWILL

Your post made me remember that a month ago I saw a sign for a brand new Goodwill a couple of towns over. It’s probably open now … I’ve gotta go check it out! I’m following you via Linky Followers.
