Great Goodies from Goodwill!

Lately, my Goodwill has had a lot of neat things. If I had a lot of money I would probably be bringing home a bunch of  goodies, but since we are on a pretty tight budget I have to choose a few special items. Here are some of my latest finds:

This lovely Japanese teapot was only $1!

I think the blue and brown Herons match nicely with the rest of my kitchen. :o)

This cute cork sculpture was only $1! There is a small missing piece of glass in the back, but I don’t mind.

I love all the detail in cork sculptures! I have a couple of small ones, but could never bring myself to spend the money on a larger one.

See how pretty it looks on the shelf over one of my windows in the kitchen?

This heavy wooden tray was a real bargain at $2.50!

And I knew I had to have this vase when I saw it! The glass is blueish and I love the woven bamboo around it! Someone hid this behind a bunch of junk. I saw it peeking out and pulled it out to get a better look. I would’ve paid full price for this ($4.99 at World Market), I only paid $2.

And it’s “Made in Vietnam” just like my husband! 😉

They make a nice addition to my living room decor, don’t you think?

And Robyn, I did think of you when I dropped by Goodwill this week! 😉 For those of you who do not know, Robyn is a lovely lady with a sweet blog called Forest Hills Road. She has a really positive and uplifting outlook on life. I hope that you will stop by and visit her! :o)
Forest Hills Road  has had a “blog not found” message for the last few days. I’m not really sure what has happened to my friend and I hope that you will all keep her in your prayers!

Thanks for visiting! :o)

I’m linking to these fun parties:

  1. Michelle…I'm blushing!!! Thank you so much for mentioning me in your blog…you are the sweetest! You also are a woman after my own heart…you love the GW! Great finds girlie…I'm looking forward to seeing how many of your bloggy friends visit me…Much love to you! ~Robyn

  2. Michelle, thanks so much for linking up. Girl you scored on that teapot for a dollar! I love the World Market find too, one of my favorite stores. Thanks so much for linking up Michelle, I look forward to seeing you.

  3. Great finds! I went to two Goodwill stores yesterday and walked out with nothing! Gonna try again Thursday when I go for my weigh-in. Where in NC are you located? I am from York, SC.

  4. Thanks Charlotte! I live close to Charlotte, NC where there are a lot of Goodwill Stores. I've also found some great deals shopping the Goodwill stores in smaller nearby towns. Sometimes I walk out empty handed too…I think the key is to check back frequently. Or else I've just been hitting it real lucky lately. 😉

  5. Michelle, I just know this is totally God working today. I have tried twice to email Robyn and her blog is shut down. I'm so worried about her and how she's doing. I didn't have a thing to link to this party but I wanted to look at the great stuff and what do I see, but a mention of Robyn. Have you heard from her in the past few days?Any friend of Robyns is a friend of mine 🙂

  6. What great finds! I love cork sculptures, but could never afford one. What a great deal you got. The Goodwill in my little town is terrible and so overpriced, I miss the one in Tampa, FL where I never walked out empty-handed.

  7. I just paid more than the World Market price for the rattan wrapped vase.:( I found mine at Tuesday Morning. You certainly scored!!Fondly,Ann@The Tattered Tassel
