Goodwill Goodies

PurplemoonMay 2, 2013

My BF and I were going to a big vintage/antique shop, and made an unplanned stop in a tiny Goodwill we saw nearby. I found an egg plate that appealed to me for Easter decorating. Its real heavy, and in a pretty green shade that didn't photograph real well.

I got REALLY excited over this BIG (10 inches high) musical Woodland Santa Snow Globe. I had NO intention of buying any more Christmas things but no way could I leave this. In PERFECT condition!! The price was missing, and the fact GW has gotten a bit higher price this past year, I wasn't too sure what the manager was going to say when I asked to buy it. She said "how about $3.99"? I darn near snatched it out of her hands and was grinning like the Cheshire Cat. There are so many litter critters IN and AROUND this piece,
its absolutely delightful. I just love it !!

hugs, Karen

More great finds! You're lucky -- around here if there isn't a price on an item they won't sell it to you. :p
