Maybe I should change my name to Candydish!

Found some more TS dishes at GW.

The purple Lotus Poppytrail dishes were .37 ea piece. When I googled them, they sell for LOTS MORE!!

I found the Crate and Barrel Popcorn set for $4.50 for the set.

Good thing I have a basement!!

Candy, great finds! I love the lotus dishes, esp. and I passed on a pop corn set awhile back, just because of storage issues. Like I just told Jane, I am envious of anyone with a basement. Great "treasures" and I think Candy dish would fit, too, Janet

Candy, love the purple Lotus Poppytrail dishes. What a deal at .37 a piece. The popcorn set will be so cute set up for a night at the movies. I have a lg red & white popcorn bowl but never seem to use it. Thanks for sharing Ms Candydish!

Candy Dish...cute and the (name fits perfectly)
Pretty Lotus dishes and such a lovely color.
Great price on the popcorn bowls..they'll be fun to use.

I think I've said this before, I've NEVER seen prices at my GW like yours. I often find something, and it's priced either the same or more than in a store! You're lucky, because you've got someone there who's a great pricer..

Candy, your dishes are beautiful. You are lucky to get such great prices. Our GW also has rather high prices so I rely on the thrift store and garage sales.

Yep, you definitely might have to change your name...LOL.
Once again you've found incredible bargains, and those purple dishes are really neat.
Like Jane, I've not seen prices so low at my GW. Even on half-off day!

hugs, Karen

Most of the Good Will stores in the Denver/Fort Collins area price dishes and glasses at .49c ea. When it is Senior Day on Mondays the discount is 25% which makes them .37c ea. and any other day seniors can get a 15% discount.
I just found out last week that the GW stores in Colorado Springs are completely different. Senior Day is Wed. and that is the only day there is a senior discount and they price all of their dishes/glasses differently. Apparently on how much the pricer thinks they might be worth.

That being said, sometimes the GW store thinks the dishes are more valuable and those are in a different area and more pricey than the others. Unless it is something I really want, I rarely buy those.

Since DH and I are usually playing golf on the weekends, I don't get to many garage sales, so TS's are my main source for bargains.

Oh I love the color and pattern of the lilac dishes!! What a great deal! DH has finished off most of the basement and it includes a home theatre with a 110" screen, a projector, comfortable seating and a popcorn machine! That popcorn set would be used a lot! I haven't been doing much other than work and gardening but I am feeling the pull of TS shopping so maybe I will get to one or two this weekend and see if I can find the deals on my end of town that you find Candydish!! :)

Oh Oh Candy! I just found out the Denver area Goodwill's are 50% off "most" items on Monday! Guess I know where I'll be :) Also, I check this blog almost everyday. The woman that does most of the writing is married to a local sportcaster:

She also has her own thrifting blog where she shares her GW finds:

That purple is lovely and will be great for Spring and Summer. I really like that pattern too. I do have to say not only is everything you find reasonable, you find great things. Our GW has nothing but trash as far as dishes go. The TSs are a little better, but you have to check everyday to find anything good. At least here we all get to enjoy all your fab finds.

Back when I first found Gardenweb and the Garden Junk forum, I was finding plates and even pretty clear dishes for 50 cents to a dollar each. Now many of the plates are priced at $3.99! Can you believe that? Once in a great while, they go through and do some drastic markdowns--then some go down to as low as 85 cents, but they are not usually the ones I'd want even if free! LOL

Love the shade of lavender on your's and you even got service pieces too. Cute popcorn set--you might want to strike a bargain buy or swap with Kath for her new "theatre"!

Once again you found the best bargains, Candy. I love the lotus plates, such a pretty shade of purple. The popcorn set is fun, sounds like it will be put to good use.
