A few Goodwill Finds

I can not pass up a good find at a thrift store. It's an urge that I can't escape. I try to stay away in fear I will end up being one of those ladies with lots of nick nacks and well, junk all over the house. I like a clean, open space. But I also like cute stuff at cheap prices. So I've been studying on how to arrange like items together in groupings so they don't just look like junk. I will show you what I come up with soon. I have been inspired by many lovely blogs.

A few things I keep my eye out for: white dishes, mercury glass, birds, picture frames, glass ware and I love the Target items that Goodwill gets.

Here are a couple of ducks and mercury glass candle holders from target for a steal. Also a cute little clock I knew I could find a place for.

This is my favorite find in a while. One of those old fashioned looking phones. For $15 it's more than I usually spend on one item but I couldn't resist. I tested it and yes it works! Only problem is I don't have a phone jack anywhere I would like to put it. I will figure something out but for now it's just sitting pretty. :)



  1. I love the Mercury Glass Candleholders! I never find stuff like this at my local Goodwill.

  2. What great things you found. Love the phone.

  3. When I'm going thru G/W, I always wonder, "Who would give this away?" Ha! Ha! Their loss is my gain!

  4. Love the phone Jen, I've actually been wanting one just like it for a while now.
