The newest Goodwill is right near my bank and the grocery store we shop at,
so it's very "convenient" to pop in for a few minutes while I'm out running errands.
This week I popped in and spotted this 8 book set of Dickens, dated 1885.
They were $1.99 each.
I wasn't too sure if I should get them or not, so I left them there.
When I told my Hubs about them, he said to go back a.s.a.p. and get them.
So, being the submissive wife that I am, I did!
Aren't they lovely?
And, YAY!, no smokey or musty smell like many old books can have.
The drawings inside are amazing.
You'll also notice another little french mustard jar has been added to my collection.
I found it at an antique store we stopped at on our way home from the coast last weekend.
This silver plated tray is from Pottery Barn,
but I found it at the Goodwill when I went to pick up the Dickens books.
It was half off, so I got it for $3.50.
I am not fond of super ornate things,
so this tray with it's simple engraving is perfect to me.
When I went to check out at the Goodwill,
the checker asked if I qualified for the senior discount.
Since I'm 55, I do, so the Dickens books and the Pottery Barn tray together cost me just a bit over $16.
Hurray for beautiful bargains!
Well, it's almost Friday, friends.
Have a HAPPY, HAPPY Friday
a BLESSED Saturday!
