I've discovered how true that can be. I'm fairly new to the thrifting scene. And to be perfectly honest, it wears me out! A few weeks ago I wanted to run by Goodwill but I didn't want to spend a lot of time. I should also mention I was out with Husband, and I'm assuming it's true for most husbands that Goodwill is pretty much the last place they want to be on a Saturday afternoon. But he's a good sport and chilled on the couches till I was done. And I was good and only spent about 20 minutes there. Here's what I came out with
I don't remember the break-down of everything, but the grand total was $20.67. I was most excited about the four gold chargers for $2.99. Pretty sure Hobby Lobby sells one charger for that same price. Can't wait for Christmas now! And the candles were turned into this project. The seashell and vase ended up in our bathroom (don't worry, you'll see where soon). And the hat-form-thingy was something Husband picked out. It now lives in our laundry room.
