Today's Thrifty Treasures

The weekend's seem to fly by so fast and then it's time to head back to the super fast pace of work. I was able to get to Goodwill on Saturday and found some great things. I've already spray painted this container and have it on the kitchen table.

And I put these in the container - how lucky I was to find both on the same day!

But my best find, was this wire chicken. It was so grimmy that I had to put it in my dishwasher to clean it. Maybe tomorrow night, I'll be able to spray paint it a nice cream color.

I was happy to hear that the manager of this store is now managing another Goodwill store in town. This other store, has the same look and feel from 1960 and I don't think it's been cleaned since then either. A friend was telling me that as soon as this manager took over, she started cleaning house - employees, carpet and merchandise. I stopped in to check it out on Saturday, didn't find anything but it definitely was cleaner. Last weekend, one of the clerks was wearing winter ear muffs (it was 80 degrees outside) - kinds of interesting.

Anyway - here's wishing everyone a fantastic Monday. Stop over to Southern Hospitality for more Today's Thrifting Treasures.

Hi Terry,
What a cute rooster. I'm glad he's found a nice home.

I love Goodwill, but you do see some strange things there, that's what keeps it interesting I

Great find on the wire rooster! As far as the earmuffs in warm weather, it may be a medical issue. Google Raynaud's and you will see why some of us do things like this.
