A Little Sunday Afternoon Shopping...

After being cooped up at home most of the week with the "bug" it felt good to get out today! I woke up feeling pretty "blah" still, but I really didn't want to miss church. I dragged myself up and got ready for the 11am service. And I was so glad I did...the message was awesome! More on that later. After church my husband and I took a trip to the local "Goodwill"...just for fun. He likes to go with me...he even gets into the "hunt" (to a certain degree)! Just wanted to share some pictures of some of my awesome finds. Enjoy!
Isn't this a great vintage afghan? It reminded me so much of growing up and my mom's house. Only $4.99

Can you believe someone would part with this quilt after all the hard work? It is 48" X 60"! Beautifully pieced and machine quilted in a roaming heart design. It is in perfect condition too!

And this little turquoise Pyrex bowl. So sweet!

Remember these Tupperware spice holders. How about those retro '70's colors?

It was a lucky day for me to find supplies too. There was this whole bag of brand new Zig Woodcraft markers (never even opened)...17 total...all for only $1.99! They are great for painting, decorating or lettering on wood.

And this 1 lb. sack of various sizes of cardstock paper. Some really nice colors....99 cents!

I am always using tulle for projects...this "mega roll" (that's 100 yards) of white tulle was only .99 cents too...awesome!


And even this Craftstor container...it's a brand new stackable tote...they sell at Michaels for like $20...it was only $2! Sure beats their 40% off coupon!
I love this neat Rubbermaid storage container. Each of the drawers rotate out to open. It stands about 14" high...perfect for all sorts of doo-dads!
And last but not least, all four of these heart buckets (5" X 8") for only 50 cents...they were the 1/2 price color of the day!

I didn't really score so much in the vintage department...but I am ready to get crafting!

Thanks for visiting, Carrie

Those are some great deals - especially for a crafter. I really like that afghan. You asked on my post about where to get frozen slippery dumplings. They are in the freezer section in a red and yellow box and are called "Annie's Dumplings." Directions for making chicken and dumplings are on the box. I don't know if you can find them everywhere, though. They can be made by hand, too.

Girrrrrrl, you really found some good deals. My hang out is the Salvation Army and Estate sales and of course junk beside the road. Hugs, Rosemarie

Hi Carrie! You've got some really fabulous stuff at your Goodwill. I've never been able to find anything worth buying at ours. I have better luck at garage sales. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I will confirm what your girlfriend said, the prep is terrible. I had to drink 1 gallon of the solution within a 4 hour period. It tasted salty and was so difficult to do.
I can relate to putting it off because I did too(by almost 4 years). Just think, once you have it done, you won't have to do it again for another 10 years!
Take care!
Aloha!

Hi Carrie, First, thanks for visiting my blog and now I am so glad that I have found yours! Don't you just love the Goodwill?
We were visiting my brother-in-law and his wife during the holiday in Savannah. She and I made some killer buys at 2 stores there! Always a treasure awaiting.
I hope to spend more time "visiting" your site!
Have a great Tuesday...Linda

Hi Sis, well I think that you did well. Cannot find those treasures in our Goodwill Shops. Keep it up, I love the old tupperware spice decanters now those are retro for sure. And finding supplies is always a big plus.
Hugs & Kisses, Sis Diane
