~Thrifty Thursday~

I hit the jackpot again this week. I’m pleased!

Lets have a look at this weeks Goodwill treasures.


A beautiful bird. Love it. I paid more for this than I usually would. $3.99. But I really liked it and it will serve through Spring, Summer and Fall decorating. Smile


A delish Banana Bread candle in a great prim container. $1.00 Can’t beat that!


A great little pewter Bowl. $.50. Going to the
pewter shelf in the dining room.



Even though I collect Pfaltzgraff Village… this is for my bestie, Tammy, who also collects it. She gets first dibs on all found Village. Smile  $3.99


A beautiful perfect gathering basket. $4.00. Seriously annoyed at the price but I did it anyway. It’s so cute. Thinking tulips!




THE most adorable little yoyo flower pillow! So frickin cute!


And I found some great textiles this week!


Four Donavan house napkins.


Two Park Designs Napkins.


Two checked Green valances. LOVE.


And one burnt orange runner.


Ebby approves of them all!


A BEAUTIFUL quilted runner. Love this! It’s perfect!


Further proof that no matter where I move this penny rug it’s the chosen spot! The Primcats thank you Michelle. LOL!


Any way this great runner is hand stitched. Beautiful piece. $7.00. Again… they are becoming ridiculous with their prices but I like this!


Kitchen wares… two great metal sets of measuring cups. $.50 per set. DEAL!


It was a good week this week!

Until next time…
Carmen and the Primcats

Wow Carmen you made out like a bandit for sure, but my favorite piece is the birdie. I must go shopping with you sometime...but we would probably be rolling on the floor holding on for dear life to get something that we both wanted....LOL

I think you did great Carmen! I agree, they seem to be jacking prices up, that's why I now only go on sale days at my places! I love them all, but my favs are the quilted runner and the basket!
The babies have to be cozy! LOL!
Have a great week!

Brenda said...

You really scored and got some great stuff. I would like to pick a favorite but cannot make up my mind! :)

rachel said...

Man Carmen - I love your finds!! I agree with you on the prices being a little high these days but your couple higher ones evened out with your cheaper goodies! :) I LOVE your basket & the table runner! Have a great day!

Great finds. I stopped at my local Goodwill the other day and walked out in disgust. Their prices were ridiculous! $3.00 for a wood bowl, that was part of a 6 piece set, so that would be $18 for the set. Probably could have bought it brand new for less than that! I will wait for the flea's warming up here and they should start real soon.

Back to your the basket and the quilted runner.

Great finds Carmen, my favorite is the basket. We don't have "Goodwill" stores here in the UK, am thinking our closest to them will be what we call "Charity Shops", where people donate unwanted items and the proceeds from the sales go to various charities. The prices in some of these shops can be very expensive and there are nowhere near such lovely items as you find.

terrific basket and I love the checked dinner napkins. prices are going crazy. I can remember when they would bundle these 4 napkins together and sell the bundle for 88 cents. and that beautiful runner would have been 2.38. it's tough to get a good deal anymore......
