It was so nice to not have any plans on Saturday. I’ve been really busy lately and it felt good to finally get a break. I found some great deals this weekend. Saturday was Half-off Day at Goodwill. I get really annoyed by crowds, so I usually wait until the late afternoon to go. I know I might miss out on some great things because I don’t go early, but I just can’t handle the morning rush.
I was lucky enough to come across a flea market in the parking lot of an antique mall Saturday morning. I would have liked to spend more time, but I hadn’t showered yet and wasn’t wearing any makeup…let’s just say, I bet everyone was glad I didn’t stick around.
Enough blabber, here are my finds:
[Please excuse the staging (or lack thereof). It was nearly impossible to find a place to put the mirror that wouldn’t reflect on my messy, half packed apartment.]
Plant Stand - Goodwill
Window Mirror - Goodwill
Tissue Box – Savers
$7.99 $4.00 (half-off blue tag, baby!)
Mirrored Tray – Salvation Army
$2.99 $1.80 (40% off entire store)
Dual Basket – Parking Lot Flea Market $4.00
Mosaic Trivet – Parking Lot Flea Market $3.00
Glass Jar - East Valley Lutheran Thrift Shop $2.00 (bought on my way home from work Tuesday)
Lucky Brand Sweatshirt – Savers
$5.99 free! (I had a coupon for buy 4 items, get the 5th free…and the cashier gave me my most expensive item free!)
Gray with White Pinstripes XXL shirt – Savers $1.00 (to make another infinity scarf*)
I found some great pieces, but still no furniture. Such is life as a bargain shopper...you never know what you will or won’t find.*Infinity Scarf Side Note: You should check out Jessica from My World - Made By My Hand’s tutorial on how to make an infinity scarf out of a t-shirt. It’s SUPER easy and quick. I made one a few minutes before I left for happy hour on Friday.
I’m completely inept at trying a scarf, so I’m loving infinity scarves right now.
