Our New Goodwill Store

Over the summer, I was watching as a brand new Goodwill Store 
was being constructed right next to the Meijer store that I go to often.
So when it opened recently, my daughter and I just had to stop in.
I mean, how could we resist, right?

We saw this nice display as we walked in and then
we saw a sign saying that everything was 50% off that day only!

Look at all the great things I found for about $11 all together.

I thought this little crock was really cute.

And look at this pretty covered dish ~ perfect for Fall decorating.

So many goodies.
It's good that my daughter was with me or I probably would
have bought more ~ I'm suppose to be getting rid of things, not buying more!
She didn't want to browse quite as long as I did.  : )

Oh, I also got this cute wooden rooster and I'm giving him a makeover.
You'll see more of him later.

I thought this outfit displayed at the front of the store was really cute too.
But sadly, I am not a size 2.

I have a feeling I may be going in there again.
I mean, being so convenient and all.

On another note, yesterday I saw these two deer in our yard.
I had not seen any in our yard in a long time so it was a nice
surprise ~ I always love seeing them.
That little one up front had his ears on "full alert" when he spotted me!

Have you spotted any special treasures lately?

  1. WOW what awesome treasures!

    Jo- that casserole serving dish matches a big platter I found at a Powell antique store a while back! (You can see a glimpse of a corner of it in my last post.) Well done - I cannot even believe this GW - may have to go thrifting with you one of these days soon! But I am trying to get RID of too - not bring in more so I have been diligently staying away from temptations! But it isn't easy! ♥

  2. What fun finds at Goodwill. We have one right next to our Vons grocery store, but I rarely stop in.

    Spotting local treasures? No deer for us, but we love when we see a harbor seal on our kayaking days. We are praying that we don't see a shark which is becoming common in our warm water!

  3. The deer are beautiful! I just love to see animals outside and to know that they still have some habitat left.

    You have a snazzy Goodwill! Something tells me your car might go there often. :)

  4. How sweet are those deer. Love the look on their faces. Wow that is a nice Goodwill you have. You got some great things and 50% off makes them even cuter!! Have a great evening.

  5. It's so great to have a Goodwill nearby---they are so generous in the way they give back. We don't have one nearby so I drop things off at our church.

    The deer are precious-I would be out of my mind to see them this close!!! :)

  6. You found some great deals at Goodwill! I really love the covered dish!

    The deer are just beautiful! I would love to live near some woods and see all the critters and nature. I've never seen one that close.

    Happy Fall!

  7. Those deers are so cute! I sometimes see some here when I have a walk in the countryside, but they never come so close to my home!

  8. We have a Goodwill Store nearby and I've found lots of great things there. Looking forward to seeing how your deer comes out!! : ) Have a wonderful weekend!!

  9. I love Goodwill and travel 15 miles to get to one....cause I can't help myself! You found some great items and it is so inexpensive. Now I'm at the point I can't bring one more thing in this house without giving some up. You'll find yourself going to GW often, because it's close by!

  10. Wow! you have a nice goodwill store! mine doesn't look that nice. I rarely go in there. You found some nice things too! One item alone would've cost what you spent for all of that.

  11. Hi there
    I would love to have a goodwill so close to me, actually that might be a bad thing, I love walking around goodwill. Love the goodies you found there and those deer are adorable.

  12. How great to have a GW so close! You got some great deals! And love the deer pic-so sweet :)

  13. Your GW finds are wonderful, JoAnne. I love all of them. I had a good week treasure hunting in our local Soroptimist thrift store. I found a beautiful pair of drapes for 50 cents. I couldn't believe it. They're in perfect condition. I think this has to go down as THE SCORE of all scores for me. We have deer in our yard almost daily. They're sweet, but I do wish they'd leave my flowers and bell peppers alone. Have a great day! ~ Nancy
