Next stop was Value Village where they were having a Veteran's Day Sale. 50% off everything! It was packed, but I was tickled to find several good things. Here's what I scored yesterday.The shelf, ceramic turkey (on the shelf) and hand painted lamp all came from Goodwill. The down ticking pillows, basket, picket tray, hand painted trivet, and two prints came from Value Village.
Last week when I was at the Salvation Army buying the mini dress form, I asked if they ever get any full sized ones in and the gal there said they do sometimes and they could call me if they ever get any in. So I left my name and number. On Monday afternoon I got a call from SA saying they had just gotten a dress form in and wanted to let me know. She described it to me and told me the price, but it didn't sound like something I really wanted.
Anyway, since I was right by SA yesterday (it is literally right around the corner from Value Village) I stopped in to check it out. Well, long story short, here is my new friend.
I just love her. I don't think I have ever seen one with this great cranberry colored fabric and the base is a neat cast iron. At first I thought I would buy her to resell, but, don't you think she looks great tucked in the corner in my living room? She goes perfectly with my curtains.
So, now I need to give her a name. Any suggestions?
Heading over to Monticello today for some drop off and fluffing. Hope you are having a great week!
