This is a somewhat terrible cell phone picture but hey, it's all I had.
Now, you must read Stephanie's post (linked above) since she gives more detail than I'm planning to. She also found some really great things. Of course, with a standard like that, I was hoping for the same. (But I should know better since Stephanie is much more experienced at 'junking' and pretty consistently finds really cool things.) Anyway, I've rambled long enough. Without further ado, here is what I found:
Vintage child's chair with a bent leg. :)
DH was with me when I pulled this out of the bin and he said he can easily straighten it. It needs a good cleaning but we needed one so for $2 this cutie was mine.
I bought this book because I liked the cover.
The pages are old looking too and I never know when I'll need old book pages for a project. ;)
This set me back $.59.
$.59 for an unopened 2000 calendar.
It has some really cool barn pictures. Again, I never know when I might need it for a project.
This grapevine wreath and basket were purchased by the pound with several other items so I don't know for sure what I paid for them. I'm guessing somewhere around $1 for both. These both will go in my crafting closet to be pulled out for later projects.
Some things for my baby boy: the book was $.59 and the diapers and FP box were $.79/ pound. I'm guessing it was around $4 for both. That's steal for the diapers alone; there are a LOT of them. I wouldn't be terribly quick to buy something like this from a thrift store but these are very clean with the plastic still mostly intact.
$.79/ pound = $1? for all 4
Vintage 'Blue Morning' Pyrex cups.
These were not all together but they were in the same bin.
I plan to resell these
Small vintage red Pyrex bowl; $.79/ pound = $1.50??
And my best (imho) find of the day, a vintage aqua Pyrex bowl with
a rare swirl design. Also for resale. Although, I must admit, the 2 Pyrex
bowls are tempting me to keep them. They are so pretty!
This bowl was also by the pound but I estimate I paid somewhere around $2 for it.
GRAND TOTAL was just over $14!
I'm very pleased with my finds and am looking forward to having
another opportunity to visit a Goodwill Outlet.
So that's what I did to beat the winter blues.
What's the weather like where you live?
Do you have a way to 'beat the blues'?
