Goodwill Hunting Stuff

I undecorated the house on Saturday, organizing and discarding as I worked, so this afternoon I took a large box of unnecessary Christmas decorations to one of our Tallahassee Goodwill locations. 

Of course I couldn’t drop off my donation without first looking around for possible treasures. While I didn’t purchase anything I found a few items that tickled my fancy. 

Little Buddha had a fish…


Take a walk on the WILD side.

Seriously, I almost bought this exercise shaker thing. I remember when they were quite the fad.

And how about this lovely fairy dancing with a bunny? I might have nightmares.  

I love boxes, and this one seems to have some specific purpose.


The question is, what is that purpose?

There were several interesting cigar boxes. I remember using my Grandaddy’s cigar boxes for school supply holders before the surgeon general had his say. 


Finally, this young lady seems to have lost whatever it was she carried. I almost bought her, she looked so sad.   

I’ve been ruminating on thrift stores these past few days. What are your thoughts on thrift shopping? I have friends who wouldn’t set foot in one and other friends who swear by them. More later, I think, as I sort through my feelings.

Peace, people!

  1. I used to always go to thrift stores, yard sales. Then I realized I do not need more, I need less. But while it lasted I saved tons on frames and knuck knacks but books I always search for.
    My friend does thrifts store to give presents. Unfortunately she never cleans the scarfs(wrinkled wear) or items. Thanks for post.

    1. Thanks for the input. I enjoy the thought that I might find a treasure–not necessarily something that’s worth a lot of money, but something that speaks to me.


      1. I was in a little market/antique mall in Blountstown, FL, yesterday. They had several really old books that I was dying to get my hands on, but they were in quite poor condition. And if books can’t be read then why bother?
