Thrifty finds!

I finally have something to share with y'all.
I don't believe I have had any luck at Goodwill for almost 2 months.
Check out my finds!

I immeditately spotted this adorable pumpkin!
I remember one my mom had when I was younger. It is from 1988. (I would have been 6)
99 cents

This vintage mommy and baby horse print found its way into my arms.
$4.98


 LOVE this lamp!
The shade is crooked in these pictures, but don't worry I fixed her all up.
I snatched it up as fast as I could!
$7.00


The bottom


I found a couple of blazers to wear for fall. 



 I LOVE this blue one. It looks purple in the picture but its really a deep blue.
I love it with my jeans and my brown knee high boots.
Looks great!

Have you found anything wonderful lately ?

Michele

Cute Michele! You scored girl. Gosh when you were six, I was 21 already, legal to drink LOL! I feel so old now.

Yay! You got some excellent deals! Love the horse picture of course. Haven't been to GW this week and am raring to go. You really went all out for your son's party. So cute! I noticed we have the same mirror. I just received mine. I first saw it at Kim's Savvy Style blog and she gave me a source. I'm loving it.
Enjoy the rest of your day!

You really scored on the horse print. These are popping up everywhere as a new trend. My GW is sadly empty lately :(

Great deals Michele! Love that horse print and the two blazers are great! I haven't scored anything recently...

I love all your thrifty finds! You know why they look so good? Because they're classic items that never go out of style. The picture, the lamp, the pumpkin, the jackets. You made some good choices. Thanks for sharing!

I haven't found anything! I love your pumpkin! I still have not found any boots to fit over my fat calves! Your outfit description sounds like it will look good.

Gah ,now I want to go to Goodwill!lol!

You're the same age as us (: Love that pumpkin!

You really found some great items! Makes me want to go to the GW store tomorrow to see what I can find.

I adore the horse picture. Great find!

Oh- I haven't had time to go to GW in the longest time. Great finds...great!! You better not let Kim over at Savvy Southern Living see that horse picture or she will be banging on your door! xo Diana

Michele, you scored some great deals! Can't wait to see where you place your finds!! I think I'm gonna hit the GW tomorrow morning!

Kimberly said...

Great finds!!

I haven't been to GW in a while, just don't want to bring anymore in this house until I get done with the kitchen! I love the lamp and I'll have to look at the blazers the next time I go!

Marianne said...

What great finds you got. Yup, you make me feel old also....lets see, in 1988...I'm not even going to go there. Lets just say, I can be you mother but I have an 8 and 6 year old instead. I took a trip to goodwill today and it was a bust. I guess it's a hit or miss. Can't wait to see what you do with your new treasures!

Great stuff!!!

Shelia said...

Hi think you did great on your buys! That's a scary looking pumpkin! LOL
I'm not even going to tell you how old I was in 1988! ;)
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

bj said...

Oh, gosh, I love everything you found, girlfriend..you really did good.
I especially love one of them...and if I can find your email address, I'll send you a photo and you can see why I love yours. :)))

Found a black leather shoulder bag from Nine West for $3.99. Exactly what I was looking for.

Gail said...

Great finds Michele! I love your lamp. I try and go to our local Goodwill at least once a week and I think this past week was the first time I walked out empty handed.

Enjoy your day,
Gail

Love the horse print and that lamp is great! I don't shop our Goodwill-it never has anything but junk!

Sue said...

Michele- I ♥ that horse picture! Now that would have been a fun find for me, as well!! GW has not been a stop for me for months. Our stores have little to offer- their best merchandise is when I give MY stuff away. LOL If DebbieDoo thinks she is old- HAH- I was even waaay older than she was at that time. I think age in years is relevant only to how you feel and I still feel like I'm only in my 30's! :-)

I was 6 too! LOL Cute finds! I just found some stuff this week too...I will have to post it. I love thrifty finds! There is one big place here that I love to go to...I could go broke there a couple times over!! I love the Blue blazer...I think it will look great with tall brown boots! I sooo love sweater and boot weather!!

Nice finds, Michelle! I think I'm not going to have as much luck with the Goodwill here in Ohio as I did at my one on Long Island. Disappointing as far as home decor stuff goes. I'll keep checking though ~ you never know what you might find.

Anita @ Cedar Hill Ranch said...

Adorable. Can't wait to see what you do with your finds.

Ann from On Sutton Place said...

I haven't even been to my Goodwill since summer. My favorite thing is the horse picture. It's funny how sometimes you walk into a place like that and hit the jackpot and other times walk out empty handed. Have a great weekend!

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Oh, that is a nice horse picture. Hmmm, I don't think you are too far from me. Love the lamp,too.
