Yep, that’s right, I was thrifting at Goodwill…again. And let me tell you, Goodwill was good to me this week.
Last week I shared a rolling metal cart that I was going to use for a printer stand for my youngest guy. Well, that has already changed. My oldest is going to take it with him when he heads back to school in a few weeks. That hurts my heart just thinking about him leaving again. I am still not use to it!
My youngest is now going to use my latest find from Goodwill for his printer stand and it is a beauty! In my mind anyway!
It is absolutely perfect. This is more of what I had in mind when I was searching for the vintage typewriter stand. I like that it is on wheels, has a shelf, a wood top, chrome base, and a pull out work station off the side. All this for only $8…I know I can’t help myself!
Once I snatched up the rolling cart, I was feeling lucky. I picked up my usual favorites, more white dishes. I am slowly getting all that I need bit by bit.
After finding more dishes, I was going to check out but I saw some Target goods stacked up in the back. I have been seeing more and more items from Target at Goodwill. What I learned was this… once items that have been on clearance at Target and have not sold they may end up at Goodwill. So I was able to buy a few brand new items at Goodwill that were originally from Target, like this woven basket.
The other salvaged Target item I found at Goodwill is this little chrome and wood side table.
I picked it up, thinking I would spray the base gold and lacquer the top black. I wanted to use it with my black and gold table in my office. Then once I got it in there, I thought ehh not feeling it. So before I rush to paint it, I will sit with it for a while and really think about what I want to do with it and how I want to use it!
All in all, I think it was a successful trip to Goodwill. I may have to go back tomorrow. I have my eye on a mirror and if it is still there, I may have to bring it home with me.
Is anyone else have good luck with their thrift shopping?
Until Next Time,
