thrifty treasures

Oh, Goodwill...how I love thee so!


 Josef Seibel shoes - which retail for an average of $130 - for $4.99.  The leather is like butter. They feel SO good on my feet.


Snowman salt and pepper shakers in a cute red basket for $1.99.


Bath sign which had a $14.99 HomeGoods sticker on the bottom - $1.99.



Couple of hardcover books, for $1.79 each. The Kennedy one is for my husband; the poetry book for me.



One of my favorite finds...100% cotton cableknit LL Bean cardigan for $3.99! Look here http://www.llbean.com/llb/shop/51561?feat=611-GN1 to see the retail price! ;-)




Brand-new fleece gloves for 49 cents.


And a beveled glass picture which will be perfect in my re-done basement family room - $4.99. Clementine approves.


Have you found any wonderful treasures by thrifting lately?

  1. Wow...you did a great clean up!! I still have a LL Bean coat from 30 years ago...their things are meant to last! I wish we had a Goodwill nearby. I love to hear the success stories!

  2. Great treasures as usual Melanie! I don't thrift, but I should! There's a Goodwill right down the road, and in seven years I've never set foot inside, just drop off my donations at the back door. Shame on me!
