I'm joining in on Thrift Store Thursday over at Homebody Holly's blog. Here's my latest Goodwill find. This old chair. You may recognize him from the glamour photo above. He called out my name and I layed down the $12.00 at 50% off Saturday as ladies in line around me oooohed and aaaahed. Yeah, that's right. . . he's all mine. Of course, he was covered in cat hair and dead weeds, but the potential was too much to pass up. The golfer vacuumed him off with the shopvac and hauled him indoors for me. He'll be recovered shortly, though he's not bad as is. After all, he inspired the title and photo for this very blog. I scooted him through the store and loaded him up with various other 50% off items. (I'm not sure how this chair was dubbed as "he")
This cool textured ball was 99 cents. This little chicken wire basket was 50 cents.
The flowers were $1.00 for the whole bunch of 5 stems. The stems still had the tags on them for 3.99 EACH!
and these two birdcages totaled $3.50. I had just come from an antique mall where the birdcages were going for $37.00 each!
Last, but not least, was this little bench that I paid a little more for, but I justified it because it fits perfectly in our front hallway to hide our shoe basket. I have to give a shout out to Sally for leading me to it in the antique mall. I haven't decided if I'll paint it or not.
