I will be taking it easy this week, featuring some of my bloggy friends. Today I am showing Jamie’s Recent Finds, from the last two weeks. You can check out Jamie’s blog here.
Friday a week ago:
I majorly scored at the Goodwill Outlet this week! (i never had time to take photos in daylight, so excuse the bad photos please! 🙂
TWO of these lamps:
which i just happened to have a clearance Target shade for one of them:
this alarm clock:
books! and at last from the 60s, a DIY encyclopedia from 1955, and a children’s book (pictured below):
I’m addicted to the Goodwill Outlet. It’s true.
This week, I went twice and got:
10 plate basket thingies – I was just thinking last week that I needed these to reinforce flimsy paper plates and then I popped in and they had gobs of the baskets! I couldn’t decide how many to get so I just went with 10.
I also got this tray that I plan to transform.
Grand total: $2.80!
I went back and found a piece of crewel work!! I’ve been wanting one of these (in these exact colors) and I finally found one! It was really dirty but I figured I could save it. It was stapled to a thick cardboard piece thing which ended up being art that I kinda like also! I pulled all the staples out and hand washed it and I think it’s going to come out pretty clean!
the art that the crewel work was stapled to:
I also found 2 Ball jars!
Grand total: $1.92!
I gotta say, the outlet is my new favorite place. It’s not as overwhelming to me anymore. There are a ton of people doing MAJOR rummaging and digging and I still don’t quite understand the whole “buy 600 pairs of shoes” everyday moneymaking scheme, but I looooove the outlet. I have had such good luck the last 3 times – WAY better luck than a regular Goodwill! I find something at goodwill like… 3 times out of 7. (random) but the outlet has been treating me well! There’s just soooo much stuff there. love it!!
