Yesterday (Thursday) I stopped by that other local Goodwill that I discovered over the weekend. Check out my finds:
A cute denim sundress for my daughter ($4) and some kids’ books; books were 4 for $1. The Dinosaurs’ Halloween book was serendipitous because my little guy’s favorite things are dinosaurs and costumes.
A Pyrex giant bowl/measuring cup with spout, for my mother-in-law for her birthday ($5). I have one I use all the time, and I think she’ll like it. And she will like that I got it at Goodwill, since she is a thrift shop/flea market professional.
Finally, I found a two-pack of IKEA picture frames ($3; 8.5 x 11) in the perfect colors for these images that I bought and printed a while back. Not sure exactly what I’m going to do with them, but I like them. They are the front and back of an old postcard showing Camden, NJ and the Ben Franklin Bridge. Camden is where my dad grew up and it occupies a certain place in my consciousness for that reason and for others. It’s postmarked 1945. The site where I got it is cardcow.com and it has many interesting vintage postcards.
$13 total. And the Goodwill itself is more pleasant than the one I was going to, although smaller. Glad I found it.
