I've had some great luck recently at Goodwill. Of course, it does help that I drop in pretty regularly. I'm just waiting for them to give me a name tag the next time I go in. I've had to swear off (for now) though because I have so many projects just waiting to be done that I'm running out of room to store everything. I got each of these things at separate times.
I was sooo excited to find this beautiful chair for only $13. I love the curvy arms!
I was a little worried about the arms and that it might not fit into my desk space, but it fits great. I love it and I can't wait to reupholster it! Not that I've ever reupholstered anything in my life, so I hope I don't screw it up.
I also found this glass lamp base that's in excellent condition. It just needs a little cleaning up.
I think it's a Target lamp from a year or so ago. I haven't seen it in the store lately and it wasn't on their web site.
I also found this drum shade. I can never find decent drum shades that are affordable. Why are drum shades so expensive? I especially like the drum shades that are symmetrical on top and bottom. So, at $3.99, I was happy to snag this one up.
Then, I had to go and buy this because it was only $10.00. I have no room for it in my house. What was I thinking? I have so many other things to do, like finish my son's room, my room, my daughter's room, the living room, the kids' bathroom, paint the kitchen cabinets, etc...
I couldn't resist it though, for 10 bucks, solid wood, beautiful, elegant lines, dovetail joinery on the drawers, round metal hardware. Know anyone who needs a nice table?
I seriously have a problem. Maybe I can start a Thrifters Anonymous 12 step program. "Hi, I'm Sharon, and I'm addicted to thrift shop finds." Would it be wrong to buy a bigger house so I have room for this table?
