"The Lord speaketh to thee, He said, go thee, thrify shopper and shopest at thy Goodwill. Thee will findeth good deals, odd people, and while thee may smell oddly upon thee's return to your abode thy travels will be worth it."
Blasphemy, ain't it?
"I'm sorry Lord and thank you for blessing me and please continue to supply me with inspiration, perspiration (check) and good deals at Goodwill. Amen. Oh, if you could also please help me find a cheap, working fridge for the garage, I'd be mighty appreciative. Ok, amen."
Still with me? Good!
Here's a little buildup to my Goodwill gold.
Hmmmm, where to start....cloche, that's a good place. I'm glad I can spell that word because I can never pronounce it. If you're wondering, they are glass domes and I lurve them! Here's one I have in the kitchen with a little robin's nest under it
Let me tell you, these things are CHA-CHING-CHA-CHING! I'm always shocked at how expensive they are. I found the above at The Olde Shoe Factory in Lancaster (you MUST go if you haven't been) for $5.00 I believe. Killer dealio my darlings, killer!
Another thing I love, stuff on pedestals.
Don't you just love that? Makes you want it to be fall doesn't it? Thought so. It's the power of the pedestal.
So, what happens when a cloche and a pedestal get all lovey dovey and have a baby?
What did you say? Did you ask what that is? Well my loves, it's Goodwill GOLD! The above is made from a cheese plate and a candle stick. Really? You don't believe me? Look for yourself.
