Goodwill Score

I found this desk yesterday at Goodwill for $9.99 I only found 2 items for resale: giraffe/elephant bookends and a bear security blanket.

Today, was 50% off at the thrift store by my house. I found a lot of stuffed animals for resale, a talking Dora, Baby Alive, a train set and a Lalaloopsy doll. I have most of this listed on EBay. I also bought a necklace for myself.

Thrift Finds

I haven't found anything spectacular while thrifting lately. I went to another estate sale on Friday because I wanted to buy a couch they had posted. It was still there when I showed up but turned out to be a sleeper sofa and those are way to heavy to haul. Plus the price wasn't in my budget. I did pick up a 45 rpm record holder.

I got this coffee table for Ryker's room. I figured he could use it for legos or his trains.

I also picked up this basket shelf. The cashier asked me what I was going to use it for and I told her hats and mittens. In warmer months, I'll store it in the closet.

Thrift Store Finds

Some things I found at the thrift store. This rocking chair was advertised at the estate sale I went to this past weekend but I did not see it. It ended up in the thrift store by my house.

I bought these birth record papers awhile back. I found 4. I have four boys so it worked out well. However, I was only able to find two frames.

I got this clock the day before I got the one from the estate sale. My starburst clock stopped working so this is the replacement.

I was checking out and my sister said look The Last Supper. It was on the wall behind the register so I asked the cashier if it was for sale. It was and only cost me $5

I also picked up a pair of brand new slippers, a new Sonicare toothbrush with charger, some security blankets and Venelope from Wreck It Ralph.

Estate Sale

There was another estate sale within walking distance from my house. I didn't find anything reasonably priced for resale but picked up a few things for myself. Here is what I got on Friday.

I have always wanted a big spoon and fork for my kitchen.

I thought this elf was adorable. I also picked up some measuring spoons and a horse shoe.

I only bought this clock because there was a $25 minimum to use a credit card. Later, a member of one of my fb eBay groups said this was illegal. It's a nice clock though and is marked Henry Miller.

Today, I went back and got two of these table lamps. I was deciding between these and another smaller set that was there. A lady said she liked this set better but was glad I was looking at them because she has too many lamps and if I bought them, she couldn't add to her collection.

Estate Sale Finds

I went to an estate sale by my house yesterday and today. I got these 3 items yesterday.

The two weather houses were really dirty and the mail sorter had some type of film on it, like maybe grease. I'm keeping the sorter and listing the houses on eBay.

Aren't these poodles the cutest?

When I went back today, I only got this keychain. (the bullet) I want to go back tomorrow, but since someone stole my PayPal debit card number, I had to cancel my card and I can't get out my money. The rep said I wouldn't get a new card until the 15th.
