This past week I had been lucky at Goodwill. I just thought I’d share some of the things I came across. You know I don’t need a blankety blank thang, but I’m actually addicted to the thrill of the hunt.. ( I need therapy – seriously) – someone please introduce me to Will Power… chuckles.
Well here we go with what I saw… This dusty little cooler bag was the perfect size for my son to take with him out fishing. Judging by the dust on the outside, I knew it was going to be dirty inside…
But I was totally surprised – how wrong I was! (and btw.. it was $2.75)
Then I came across these office chairs.. Yes they were a bit outdated, but nothing that some new fabric and spray paint can’t fix – the wheels work perfect (I scooted around for a test drive). They were $2.75 each (what a steal)
Up next – these chairs… I really dig the modern shape and yes, they were comfortable and sturdy. The wood was in perfect condition. Just update the fabric and they’d be a great pair of vintage inspired sitting chairs. The best part – their bargain price $5.75 each
This slipper chair was just $4.87 (let’s ditch the outdated orange velvet fabric – blah- with some new up-to date fabric and you’ll have fantastic slipper chair. This also was a comfortable chair..the springs were in tact
I really wanted this two-seater sofa, but someone plucked the tag (beat me to the punch). I just imagined a nice metallic paint and new fabric would make this a fabulous piece. The price?? a mere $42.75
Lucked up with another macrame plant holder for $1.75 (I couldn’t leave this behind)
So you see why I enjoy the thrill of the hunt. So I guess you’re wondering what I came home with..well..truth is… none of them (except the plant holder). Will Power almost came to the rescure, but as I was walking out the door, I glanced over at the shoe section.. (WHY??? I’ll never know – I never-ever look at their shoes.. and I mean never) but for some reason the shoes didn’t look “beat up”. I spotted these sandals – never worn in mint condition. I tried them on – perfect fit! Hmmm… I really like them for my jeans.. so home they came…. and guess what.. they were $2.87 – LOL!!! I had to smh and say “Kim (my alter ego) GO HOME”
So … you feel where I’m coming from…. I love the thrill of the hunt. What about you?? Someone please tell me I’m not alone..LOL!
