Loot from the Goodwill

It was another successful shopping trip to the Goodwill. I have to admit, I am one lucky duck to have such a fabulous Goodwill right down the street from my house. It is huge and always well maintained. And let’s just say that I don’t mind the military discount day either. 😉

I’m going to show you my items right out of the bag… no washing or ironing (YET!). It wouldn’t be the full Goodwill experience if I didn’t show you clothes with wrinkles. 😉

Without further delay, my loot:

Shirt #1:6

With ruffles… and chickens?! I don’t know what the design is…but it looks like chickens to me! And that made me one happy girl.

7Brand: Merona

Price: $1.68

Shirt #2:

4A casual coral shirt… perfect for spring days.

5Brand: OP

Price: $3.35

Sweater #1:

9A cream colored cardigan sweater.

I’m 98% sure that I am going to change out the buttons.

10I just loved the cute detail design.

I thought it really gave some visual interest to an otherwise plain cardigan.

And the detail continues to the back:

11Brand: Kenneth, too.

Price: $2.20

Dress #1:

1

This had to be my happiest find of the day!

3A practically brand new (the security tag hadn’t even been cut off yet) Ann Taylor Loft dress that fit like a glove!

2Brand: Ann Taylor Loft

Price: $1.76!!

And just for fun…I got one more item.

12A vibrantly spring floral pillowcase.

13Price: $.79

But what am I going to do with this pillowcase you might ask.

Well! I am going to recycle it into an apron!

I just loved the pretty floral print… and I know just what kind of apron I want to make out of it.

Stay tuned for the transformation!

All in all…I got:

2 shirts

1 cardigan sweater

1 dress

1 pillowcase

for… $9.78

I don’t know about you, but I’d say I made out like a bandit!

It’s always an adventure in the Goodwill. 😉

    I just got home from our local Shelter Workshop (like Goodwill) with:
    1 pair of little boy overalls
    1 Carhart jacket for oldest boy (great shape)
    1 pair of Roper cowboy boots for oldest
    1 dinosaur robe for littest guy
    2 kid books and last February’s Better Homes magazine
    1 red cross insulated bag (for the boys adventure kit).
    Total price: $5.00 NO KIDDING
    I go there a lot and they are real nice to me and go easy on pricing.

    I love all your finds, especially the cardigan!
