Yesterday was a 1/2 off sale at Goodwill so I picked up some supplies.

I got a baggie full of all this stuff.  A zipper, a set of wooden purse handles, several buttons including doll size ones, strap guards(?), flower appliqués, fabric roses, some unidentifiable stuff, and four different kinds of lace.  It was the lace I really wanted, the other stuff are bonuses, assuming I can find something to do with it all.

I also got a bunch of fabric.  I have something special planned to do with it, and not something on my project list either.  Still, I can’t even start on it without doing a little more research.  I guess it is a little strange to be starting a big thing when I only just started something else.

Here’s the updated list:
  • doll headbands
  • halters
  • camera
  • stamps
  • painting supplies
  • knitting supplies
  • video
  • face magnets
Two down, six to go.  The next one should be up by tomorrow, hopefully a littler earlier too.


  1. i like to call it badwill but i guess they give jobs out so it isnt that bad. you know the whole marked up items. its business. youre smart to go on sale day.

  2. Are they really that bad? The prices at Salvation Army are much worse. I usually try to shop on a sale anyway. I love Thursdays because that's the dollar day. Items with the week's special tags are only a doller, that's how I got my breadmaker.

  3. I love going to thrift stores for antique finds! Half price sales are even better, lol.
