Garage Sales and Goodwill

Today I am joining the party over at Southern Hopitality where people share their thrifty finds. It is so much fun to browse other blogs and see what great treasures people have found.


I got to be an early bird at a yard sale my daughter was helping with and found this cute bread crock. I got it for FREE, can you believe that? Actually my daughter was going to sell it but she kindly gave it to me after much whining on my part. ( I would have bought it anyway because she had a $2.00 price on it)
Here are 2 plate stands I picked up at Goodwill awhile ago for 2.00 each. The black and white plates in the back were on clearence at Ross.

I found this cute wire basket at Goodwill also. The fruit was purchased at the Dollar Store. The picture doesn't do the fruit justice, it is sparkly and bright.


This teapot was also a Goodwill find. I think I paid 3.00 for it. Can you see a black and white trend going here? I love decorating with black and white.




I found this cheese plate at Goodwill and put some sand dollars I collected from the beach in it.


That's all for this week. Happy treasure hunting!

I love decorating in black and white (with some silver thrown in) so I loved everything you bought! Those Ross plates are probably my favorites.

Cute things... have never seen a bread crock before! Am I living under a rock? LOL Our GW never has buys like you got, BTW.

You've found some great things at GW. Love what you did with the little shelf w/drawer a few posts ago. Painting it black, then with the addition of the black and white paper made it great! Love the cake stands. Those are usually snatched right up at out GW. Great butter crock! And FREE, that's the best : ))

I love cake stands, although they always seem to hold something other than cake. Your black and white theme is great too. Funny how our tastes change over time. I never really liked it but love it now. thanks for sharing. Leslie

I love everything you found. The bread crock is beautiful. What a sweet daughter. You know I loooove cake pedestals so I would have grabbed those. I am really into decorating with black and white these days too. I like finding deals at Ross. I must have a dozen wire baskets. We have the same taste. You did amazing!!!
