Goodwill Goodies

I made an unplanned, quick stop at Goodwill
the other evening and came home with a boatload
of dishes.  I would normally feel somewhat
guilty about buying more dishes, but wait 
until you see what I got for just $22.

To start off with, all this glassware.

Then I scarfed up four dinner plates in both
solid green and blue.



Next I found these lovely hand-painted
dishes called "French Iris".


These I can mix and match with the blue dinner plates.

And last of all, I got this nice container that I have already
used to make a Thanksgiving centerpiece.  It was
only $.99.  But more about the centerpiece
in a later post.


Linking up with Coastal Charm for
Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays.

Your GW apparently has better stuff than ours, Cindy! How fun to find plates that you can mix n match with the French Iris pattern. I need to get out and find some goodies this Thursday. Hope there are some yard sales going on.

I love GoodWill, honestly it's been a constant in my life since the age of 8. You have found some beautiful treasures, they look brand new too! GoodWill in my area and most often sell new items donated from Target. Your blue and green plates look like some of their items as well as the lovely urn type pot. Well done.

Every time I read about wonderful scores like this from GW, I do a little pout. Ours never has good stuff, and even the semi good stuff is usually over priced.

Grumble over.

I think you got some wonderful things! I love those handpainted dishes!

BTW, I laughed at your story of picking the cotton and being afraid of the southern sheriffs.
That was so funny. You probably should have been more afraid of the southern farmer. Grin.
