Not a great picture. Hard to get everything in. Go ahead and click on it for a better view of everything.
I got a whole pile of clothes, (not pictured) the bingo cards, little wood box with flowers, and the three band instrument cases at the Goodwill Outlet. I have only been to one of these stores maybe two times and I am always a little squeemish about the whole digging thing. I love to treaure hunt, but I'm not always good with the digging. Anyway, after walking around the place for about 10 minutes, I started to get into digging through the bins. Now I can't wait to go back! I don't know why I haven't gone more often cuz I got a big pile of stuff for next to nothing. I asked the cashier if any fights ever break out and she said, "Oh yeah, all the time." I hope she was kidding.
The cute little metal shelf was folded and taped up, but after I got it home and unfolded it I realized that the middle shelf was missing. Oh well, it was cheap and it still looks cute and is functional. This cute cross stitch rose picture is so sweet. Unfortunately is has a water stain on the bottom right corner. Of course, this did not deter a true shabby chic girl like me.
I am particularly excited about the two brass sconces. I found those at another goodwill on the way home. Oh and I also stopped at the Salvation Army thrift store, got two new Banana Republic tops and at Value Village I got a bag of vintage seam binding and trim.
I did go to Isabel's to check out some of her recent finds. She really needs to do a blog as she finds some of the most amazing things. I added a link to her Ebay auctions on my side bar so you can check those out if you want. I added one for me too, hopefully this will motivate me to do some listings. I really want to do more, but never seem to get my act together to do it. Maybe this weekend I will list some items. Anyway, Isabel just happened to have a couple lampshade frames and said I could have one. I brought it home and put it on my new thrift store lamp from my last post. It was cute on it's own, but I thought I wanted to fancy it up a little bit. Well, I have a bag of vintage curtain, valance panels so I found one I thought might work, sewed the ends together, pulled it over the frame and pinned on one of my millinery flowers I got at Expo recently and voila! What do you think? This project couldn't have been easier.
Gotta run! Isabel and I are going over to Monticello together tomorrow and to check out our friend Randy's new shop, Madison Park, in Sellwood. I will definitely take along the camera so I can show you what it looks like. Knowing Randy, I'm sure it will be fabulous.
ADDITIONAL NOTE ADDED: I had a very lovely lunch with my husband. We went to Chevy's and I had some yummy crab and shrimp enchiladas. I just got so excited about all the shopping I forgot to mention lunch. ha ha
