Another great shopping trip at Goodwill

For those of you that don't know, in Arizona at least, every other Saturday, Goodwill has 50% off everything in the store except for food and beverages.  This Saturday was no exception.  I went to 2 different stores and got all these goodies for less than $30.  I went to the Goodwill in Mesa located on Main Street just east of Recker.  Was not too impressed with my trip here.  By the way, they are closing this store in the next couple of weeks and opening a bigger store right across the street by JoAnn's.  I then went to the store on Power and Ray in Gilbert.  This was the 1st time I was at this store.  A much smaller and congested store, but most of my treasures were found here that day.

I am putting together a wall of mirrors so I have started collecting them in any shape and size.

I have also been collecting jars to put my ribbon stash and buttons in to display and for easy viewing.

I also have been needing a table lamp in my living room and will get rid of the lamp shade and paint this one.

Got this lamp stand for my daughter and am on the hunt for a lamp shade for it.  Will paint this too of course.

That wooden thing in the back will make a good holder for my earrings once it gets a new coat of color as well.

What treasures have you found recently?

  1. I LOOOOVE everything you found. You got some good stuff. Can't wait to see what you do with it all. Also, I wanted to thank you for checking out my blog so often - you're awesome. :) I think you, me and Kelli need to do lunch some time.

  2. What a score! I love that white tray and the star too!
    I have been to that Goodwill on Main St and I am hoping the new one will be better. My in-laws live out in East Mesa so we spend a lot of time out there on weekends. Have you ever eaten at El Metate? It's the little Mexican restaurant in the parking lot of Joanns. Delicious! Inexpensive food and it is really yummy. We get food from there EVERYTIME we are in the area.


I love hearing your comments of honesty. Please feel free to leave me tips and ideas as well. Thanks for your words of wisdom. I appreciate you! Consider following my blog for more crafty information.
