Thankful for what seems a small thing today: new Goodwill store in my neighboorhood!! I have found out after moving here that I was spoiled in AZ with the local thrift shops and Goodwill stores. Prices are high here and most of the thrift stores are a mess. Even though this one is brand new they had thrown all of the housewares, Christmas decorations, patterns and other misc on the shelves on top of each other. Really hard to find things and the possiblity of knocking things on the floor and breaking them was high! I did get some things here are the cheap goodies: a small wicker chair (doll size), 2 pink Christmas stockings and a package of pink napkins. I also found (they are in the washer so no pictures yet) a pink jacket with a very large pink lace collar, a pink sweater with rhinestone buttons and a cream linen blouse. Each of these will be torn apart and things selvedged. Buttons and lace of course and the linen fabric for embroidery, wishing the clothing prices were better but maybe in the future they will have sales when I don't have to feel guilty for spending $4.95 for clothing to tear apart! I know that I can't buy linen for that price per yard so I guess I did ok, certainly not my best bargain hunting ! The hunt was fun and of course it will not be packed like it was today in the future, ya know it was the first day! I did wonder if they had been saving the best donations from all of their stores to haul in there for the first day!! LOL Aren't I bad?? Baby girl had a delay getting out of Eygpt, hoping she arrives tomorrow!! Have a great day!
