Goodwill Goodies, Part One.

I took another trip to Goodwill this weekend... and found awesomeness.  In many forms.  Because I found so much awesomeness, I'm making this a two-part series.  Can you call it a 'series' if there's only two parts?  Probably not.  But I'm gonna.

Look at these candlesticks.  I would paint them white and save them for Christmas... and at a  bargain price.

I had to make a trip to the dollar store that morning to get some candlesticks for an upcoming project... for $1, they are such a steal.  Until I found THE EXACT SAME CANDLESTICKS at Goodwill for under $1.  Joy.
Oh, and dirt-cheap BRAND-NEW candles to go in them.  It was meant to be.
I have less than $3 in my basket.  My heart skips a beat.
This is one of those ginormous measuring grid boards that seamstresses and other talented people use.  This one is cardboard and folds up.  At $1.50, it's a deal.  I don't need it, but I wanted it anyway.  Maybe next time.
Do you see that sad little look on the duck's face?  It needs a home.  Go give it a home.
This one was hard to leave on the shelf.  It's a window box sort of thing but clearly for indoor use.  I could have done so many things with this... but alas, my mission was candlesticks.  Goodbye, sweet wooden box.  A flight of angels calls thee to thy new crafty home.
I was just saying to myself, 'self, why don't I have a book of personalized Christmas cards from 1972?'  Goodwill has everything.
Look at these shelves... a little TLC and a coat of paint and these would go great anywhere.  I can't believe what some people give away!
I'm on the fence with this one... I think I could totally turn this into something festive and brand-new looking... but just couldn't bear to make the purchase.  It wasn't meant to be.

I will post part two of Goodwill Goodies tomorrow! Your Goodwill is probably open right now... get going!
