It’s almost getting too hot for yard sales here in south – we have had temperatures reaching almost to 100 degrees and heat index way above 100! It’s hot! So this week after I dropped my nieces and nephew off at Vacation Bible School I was glad to pop in a nice Goodwill I don’t get to go to often and enjoy their air conditioner while I searched for treasures. This Goodwill didn’t disappoint either! If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you probably saw sneak peek at some of my fun finds.
I have had lamp shades on my list for a while. I have found several thrift store or Goodwill lamps but needed shades to go with them. I love drum shades but they are so expensive in the store – usually $20 or more – and I have a lot of other things on my list I would rather spend my $40 on. I will be honest the lamp shade selection at Goodwill is usually quite sad with outdated, ugly, and torn up shades. So I was excited to find these gray drum shades in perfect condition for $2.92 each.
I also found a pair of new brown dress shoes 1/2 off for $2.50, a game for $1.51.
And I seriously had to laugh a little when I saw this purse because it was SOOO perfect!
This is a Thirty One crossbody purse and I love Thirty One products. And to top it all of it was mongrommed with a “C” (my name is Christina ) and done in GRAY thread – could not have been more perfect if I ordered it myself. It was $4.94 (Goodwill’s standard price for purses) which isn’t an amazingly cheap price but for a Thirty One purse that is a GREAT deal.
There are many times that I stop in Goodwill and don’t find anything or only find 1 thing – so times like this are fun!
What have you found recently? Too hot for yard sales or perfect weather?
