I got to enjoy one of my favorite things to do yesterday. Any idea what that might be????
Two of my four daughters went to Goodwill with me. I always love being with my kids but there is something about being at Goodwill with them that just makes me smile. I’m sure it has something to do with the fact that I used to hang out there with my mom…it’s like passing on a legacy.
Shopping at Goodwill is not about what you see…it’s about what you can imagine. Take this folding table we found…
Isn’t it just the cutest? What do you see when you see it? I see it painted bright green with a piece of glass on it as a desk in my daughter’s room… Or maybe painted navy blue to use on the back porch for drinks when we have company. Or it could be painted white and used as a nightstand between the beds in the guest room. I just knew for $29 I couldn’t pass it up.
I also found these chairs…
Where are these going? Your guess is as good as mine. I really wish there had been four of them then my diningroom chair dilemma would be over….but there isn’t…that’s the way thrift shopping is.
So for $24 a piece the question is …do I need them? SURE! Maybe I will use one as a desk chair up to the table I bought…hmmm maybe the desk should be white and the chair bright green.
I’ll let you know what happens to it all…in the mean time this thrift shopper is happy that she will soon have a house that she can decorate. What have you bought recently at the thrift store?
