Goodwill Finds


I am soooo excited!!!
For many, many weeks I have been lurking at all of the wonderful garage sale and thrift store finds that all of you have found and have felt sad that I have been too busy doing other projects and having  a couple of garage sales myself, to even set foot in a Goodwill or go to other garage sales that my neighbors have held. (run on sentence - I know)

But .... I FINALLY took some time to go to a nearby Goodwill.
I really don't need much, except a few things to put on my narrow shelves since I took all of my family photos down because we have our house up for sale. I took a quick look through, but didn't find anything. :(

Then I noticed a Goodwill person bringing out a rack of things and noticed something really nice on it. The GW person had them on her arm & I went over to the rack she was going to put them on.
Here's what she had

two cut lace napkins...
Wouldn't they make a nice pillow? or look nice in a bowl?


a small runner ....
a table topper


and a large table cloth!
The total for all of these was $5.98 with tax! And, they smelled clean and fresh & were pressed, as if I had just picked them up from the cleaners!
I can't wait to set my table with these!

  3. Huge score! Can't you just imagine where they came from? Some little old lady might have lovingly washed and pressed them for the next person to enjoy. So glad you are that person!

  5. Oh my goodness! You got a bargain-and-a-half for a lovely set of table linens. They look 1930's to me for some reason. Somebody up there likes you ;)

  6. I NEVER find anything like that at the local Goodwills. I don't believ the good stuff ever makes it to the sales floor. They are beautiful. Linens are my personal downfall--I love-em.
