Got it at Goodwill!

I’ve been hoping for a mirror just like this! $5.99
So cute! I don’t know if it works or not, but I love the face and the rugged wood. $2.99
This lantern has room for candles inside! I’m still working on cleaning it up. I cleaned the gunk off of all the glass panes, and polished the  outside until it glows, but inside along the bottom it’s caked with a black grime that is really hard to get off. $2.99

This fabric had a purple tab, so it was 50% off. I think it used to be a curtain valance. It has a lovely sheen! I’m not sure what I’ll use it for yet. $1.50
Off to the side there you can see the mystery object from yesterday. It’s a really cute little planter! It has butterflies on it, so I had to get it 🙂 $4.99
My favorite find 🙂 I can’t wait to find a plant to put in the basket! I’m going to put this by the fireplace. I just love it! It looks great with the clock and lantern too! $5.99 
Speaking of the fireplace…we stumbled across this slightly used set of cast iron fireplace tools! $9.99
I’ve already begun finding homes for my finds, but I’m running into a dilemma- the brown and gold versa the black and silver. I’m hoping to buy some spray paint, but I’m not sure I can bear to paint over the pretty wood and metal things. 
Have you found anything unexpected at your local thrift store? What’s your favorite thrifty find? 
  • That bike planter is a great deal! I'm not sure exactly what my sister-in-law paid for the one we have in our house, but it was at least $20 (hers wasn't new either…). Great find! Seriously…I've GOT to go there with you!

  • I think I need you to come with me to help me have a vision for all the treasures I am overlooking!

  • Wow! Nice finds! Our Goodwill never has anything nice like this – I can usually find a few nice sweaters, but that's about it.

    Re: selling my August Break photos – the resolution on the images isn't really high, so I've been thinking of selling the images as notecards. Am looking into it as we speak!
