Winner, Winner Chicken Dinner

 During the month of January,  Goodwill hosted a drawing where you could win a gift card. Every time you made a purchase during the month, you could enter the drawing. The winner would be announced at the end of the month.

I go to Goodwill a lot so my chances of winning were pretty good. I was surprised though when I got the call saying my name was actually drawn. It was funny because I was in the parking lot when the store manager called me so I was able to claim my prize right away. This was Wednesday.

Today, I went and got these two items. I still have over 8 dollars left.

I had bought the orb previously and today found the gnome camping set. There was another piece, like a cooking pot but I didn't like it.

The other item I got was this bench with cubbies. It is all metal.

Mystery Toy Box

 I saw this storage bin at Goodwill and decided to buy it. I don't normally pay this much but after seeing what is inside, I think it was worth it

What do you think? Is it worth it?

Thrift Store Score

 One of my all time favorite scores happened last Thursday. I found this vintage pole lamp. It needed a little work, it was missing the bottom rubber piece and a shade needed fixing but it works just fine.

 I've always wanted a gumball machine. I had a small standing one years ago but I sold it. Today, I found a 5 foot Wizard machine. 

I haven't been able to check to see if it works because there is no key for the top and the gum is all melted inside. It was cheap because it has damage as well. Someone burned two holes into it to get free gum, I guess. One hole they patched with a washer and bolt. The other is still there. I'll probably end up buying a new globe.

Lesson Learned

 The other day I found an arm chair at the thrift store. I liked the color and the style. I sat in it and it wasn't uncomfortable so I bought it.

Unfortunately,  I failed to look underneath until today when I noticed some wood pieces on my floor. I flipped it over. The chair is made from mdf board. Not only that, but it appears to have gotten wet.

So, my friends,  flip those chairs over before purchasing it.

Repurposing A Candy Rack

 Yesterday,  I went to Goodwill and I spotted a wire rack on the cart a worker was putting out. On closer inspection,  it was the top half of a candy rack. It was brand new with the cardboard still attached. For 9.99, I thought it would make a pretty cool shoe rack so I bought it. It extends so I can put more shoes on it.
