I go to Goodwill every Friday. There are several antique stores in town, and they are stocked to the gills with good stuff-stuff that is hand selected for its vintage appeal. But I prefer hunting through the more modern discards of people’s personal property. It’s challenging, it’s cheaper, and the thrill of hitting real pay dirt (a relative concept, as my husband likes to point out!) is so much more rewarding.
Here is this week’s loot:
A California pottery covered dish-$1.99.
A lava lamp style bottle filled with a glitter infused liquid. ( It looks neat when shaken!) Also $1.99.
A 50’s or 60’s era Hawaiian shirt (made in California.) Granted, I wouldn’t actually wear this shirt-not even in the dark, but I envision a little bamboo handled bag that would be a hit at any luau. $3.99.
I enjoy these outings-all the more because I am supporting a good cause when I shop Goodwill. And you just never know, when you get there, what may have your name on it…
