She opened her car door and asked when I was setting up....I let her know that it was postponed until next weekend. Then she asked about the pole lamp I listed on the ad...so if figured what the hay! I let her come in real quick and take a peek. With in minutes it was sold! Sweet a sale without even trying. LOL That put me in a better mood, although now all I could think of was the missed chance to clear the house of some stuff so I got a little cranky especially since it was dry dry outside(turns out it didn't rain today). But alas I tried to forget about it and Mr. Honey and myself decide to do the normal early Saturday thrifting.
The first stop was at the Goodwill by the pound store...I had only been there one other time, and this time was no different. If you have never been to a by the pound store...there is a bit of a frenzied atmosphere.... especially when new stuff comes out. Basically every couple of days Goodwill take all of the merchandise that hasn't moved and box it, then truck it to the Goodwill by the pound store for its area. So everything is packed haphazardly into big crates, and the crates are put on shelves and you pretty much dig what you want out. A LOT of stuff gets broken in the process and people are not gentle in the least when digging...so you hear a lot of clanking and breaking in the background....which is kind of sad because you can see some great stuff but it is chipped or cracked. This store I can only stay in for a limited time...I usually check the crates and checkout. (Tip: If you go...bring some moist towelette for after...you will want to wash your hands) So here is what we found there today:
All of this (plus a wooden salt and pepper shaker set not in photo) was 3.30. Not bad!
The next stop was at my favorite thrift store....and I almost didn't stop since I found out that there is no new stuff put out on Saturday...and I went at lunch on Friday...but Mr. Honey wanted to stop...so we did and boy am I glad! I found three Dansk white Kobenstyle pots....I couldn't believe it. I ran to them when I saw them. I know I had that look of "They are mine! ALL MINE! MUuaahhhhh!"
These match a smaller one I already have! All three for 35.00.
I got this wire bookshelf too.
We stopped at several other places, here are the rest of our finds:
Cool Christmas table cloth, belt, and Vaseline glass plates
Teal rimmed Pyrex plates (yes "I" I got them for you)
I LOVE this metal bull. He was a whole 2.50! Does anyone know the maker???
I had to have this cookie cutter, it looks like Domo to me. I'm thinking gingerbread cookies iced like Domo. Oh yeah.
Can you see it?
I hope everyone had a Saturday as fruitful as mine!
