Before I started shopping at Goodwill regularly, I thought there wasn’t really much good stuff there. However, Katy’s sharing about her Goodwill finds inspired me to give mine a try. So every now and then, I like to share some of my Goodwill finds to hopefully inspire some of you!
Though I’ve been going to the gym since last November, I haven’t really had a very good shirt to wear (I’ve been wearing old ratty tank tops). So, when I saw this brand new with tags shirt at Goodwill, I snapped it up.
I think it was $5 and I’m really pleased with it. It’s lightweight, sleeveless (this is fabulous because I am so not a person who can work out in sweats and long sleeves), and the neck opening provides plenty of coverage without being chokingly high (I hate shirts with tight neck openings).
A Zoe shirt
This next item was definitely not a necessity type of purchase, but I do love it so. You know how I adore white clothing for little girls, and so this shirt caught my eye.
It’s in great shape, fits Zoe perfectly, and only cost $1.25. Shweet.
I’ve never seen Duplos at a Goodwill before, but there’s a first time for everything.
Having priced Duplos on Ebay (I even bought some there for Zoe a few Christmases ago), I knew that $5 was a very decent price for two one-gallon bags.
Duplos are designed for the preschool crowd, but all 3 of my girls still looove to play with them. They’re always building houses and castles and cars for various other little toys to use (most often the Japanese Eraser animals!). Because the castles they build are elaborate and are generally x3, it’s not unusual for them to run out of blocks, so I knew these blocks would come in handy.
Of course, because we don’t know exactly where these blocks have been, the girls gladly gave them a soapy bath in the tub (I didn’t tell them to put their feet in, but you know how children and water are. ).
A dress for Sonia
I had to shorten up the straps a bit on this one (the shoulder ties are fake, so I had to actually sew the straps), but it was a pretty easy fix.
Some handy-dandy ribbon
I found this in the Target bins…some throw packaging without a throw.
I love to salvage packaging ribbon when it’s real cloth ribbon (that’s how I added the blue ribbon trim on Zoe’s fish dress), so I asked if I could have it for free, and the employee said yes.
I’m not sure what exactly I’m going to do with it, but I’m certain I’ll come up with something.
Have you found anything fabulous at a thrift store lately?
