For $55 small ones I got…

At the retail store:

A handmade bureau/tv armoire, $15.99.

This looks handmade and kind of rough.  It needs a paint job for sure.  Which I am happy to do.  Eventually.  I have always loved refinishing dressers and furniture, so this will be a fun project for me, and a very cheap armoire for my clothes.

Which I have in abundance because of a beyond addiction to all things Goodwill.

Great Pajama capris by Secret from the mart of Wals…about 0.60 by weight

This beautiful quilt.  by Target, $3.99 by weight. 

Technically, it was over the 5 lb mark, so when something gets that heavy, they will just give you a reasonable price.

Reasonable?  I think, yes.

This quilt is not perfect, its got a few small spots and a few small tears, but nothing I wouldn’t do sooner or later myself, and nothing a guest staying over would reject a night’s sleep for:)  Oh the wonderful host am I.  Goodwill makes it easy to have extra stuff on hand for the unexpected guest.  However, I quickly decided this would not be a guest blanket, but my personal bed covering for at least a little bit:)

I also got, but do not have pictured,

a lovely new square scarf for $1.99

a pair of khaki capris for a friend for 0.60

a pair of white wide leg pants and a matching blue and white tee for $1 each for a friend,

and a heather blue pocket cardigan from Old Navy for another friend.

Didja get all that?

And it only set me back $55.

Goodwill never ceases to amaze me.

I have used a few of these items already, and here they are in action:

The branch patterned loose tee from Target was the perfect wear for my sips n’ strokes class with a few girlfriends the very next night.  I do know how to put my clothes to use RIGHT away, that’s for sure.

She’s sipping.  I’m stroking.  We are so getting this.

Whatcha think?  It’s called Walk in the Rain, Part II.

Or maybe I’ll rename mine walk in the asteroids, I don’t know…

I’ll be honest, I did strip to just my lovely under tank top for the whole painting part.I know me.  I spill.  At least I arrived and left in style with this on and my new purse on my shoulder.

As I said, I am already using my new purse.  It didn’t take me long to make the switchover.  You ladies know what that means.  It can be an emotional event.

And I wore the burgundy covered loveliness tank top for happy hour drinking on Saturday, and afterwards to walk my dog.
