A Good Goodwill Day!

I have often read on other's blogs about finding great things at Goodwill. Usually there is a lovely picture with darling tea cups, teapots, and other fine china that have been scooped up and taken into their lovely homes. There are also pictures of beautiful table linens that have been abandoned. I, on the other hand, haven't ever found anything half as great as these ladies, until today. Nathan had his regular speech appointment and I impulsively decided to swing by my local Goodwill before going home. I really wasn't expecting to find anything. I am usually excited about treasure hunting, but since I have been disappointed in the past, I didn't hurry to the back shelf where the dishes and glasswares are kept. In fact, I think I was snubbing them for not having anything awaiting me before, so I casually strolled through the many racks of clothing acting as if I didn't care. Imagine my surprise to find not one, but two tea cups and the matching saucers!


I paid .49 cents each per cup and .39 cents for the saucers. Can you believe that?

As my eyes scanned the rest of the shelves, I found this lovely Noritake bread and butter plate. I don't have anything else that matches, but I couldn't leave it there all alone, could I?



I placed these pretties in my little "hand basket" and was ready to look for those table linens. I mean, after all, I was having a good day! I soon changed my mind about the linens. There was too much stuff all strewn together in that bin. Bed linens and table linens in one. I know, I know. There was probably linen treasure galore at the bottom of that heaping pile, but I don't think I was quite ready for that adventure. I will save linen hunting for another day!

Oh the thrill of the hunt! Our goodwills around here don't offer much, usually. I need to check them more often. Your finds are very pretty!

Awesome! I came home with a $2.50 pair of jeans for me, new PJ's for Pojke, and a flat sheet/2 pillow case set that will be Pojke's new curtains! LOL

Oh - the tea-cups are so beautiful :) What a great bargain on the cups. I like the plate too.
I have never been at a Goodwill store - maybe I should just try it.

Thank you for sharing these beautiful finds with us.
