GoodWill Hunting

This is a fabulous movie, but an even more fabulous store.  I went to check out the new one in town.  ( We just got it.) And now I am addicted to it.

My son is in the in-between stage of boys to men.  He wears a mens small right now.  He has got to go with me to find shirts.

Even though they have some great deals on clothes, I had a blast looking for accessories.  I had in mind that I needed a small corner shelf for the bathroom.  It is not a must so just whenever I found it would be fine.  I saw it the minute I walked in the store.  It had been out a week and no one had claimed this wonderful jewel. 

It might lean just a wee bit, but in a "potty room" who will really notice.  The paint job is not the greatest, but that can be fixed. 

I also have recently decided to de/re - that is shorthand for decrapify and redecorate.  So, I am doing a bathroom makeover in the master bath.  Turquoise and Lime or bright green is really in, so I am going for that look.  I wast just peaking for accessories at the GoodWill and found these too!

These green vases are so ugly they are cool!  The big clear vase will look good filled with turquoise marbles that I found at the Dollar Tree.  (Our Dollar Tree is next door to the GoodWill !  Woo Hoo!)The vases were $1.99 each.  I thought that was ok.

The white star is a tree topper, but it is rustic white.  Not sure what to do with it but for $0.99 I can find a place.  But my favorite is the turquoise glass ashtray!

No one uses an ashtray anymore!  You have to smoke outside.  But in my weird way, I thought it was a treasure to save - vintage ashtray.  It was 99 cents.  It was a previous yard sale item because the 25 cent sticker was still on it and no one bought it.

I felt like Santa Claus stopping by at the Island of Misfit Toys on the Rudolph Christmas Special.  I picked up the tacky accessories of yesteryear and will give them a good home even if they are not the "in" thing.

Happy GoodWill Hunting!
