Anthropologie finds at Goodwill!




Today, while running other errands, I stopped in at two Goodwill stores on a mission to find more milk glass vases for my daughter's upcoming wedding.
We have about 30 so far, but since each table will have a grouping of vases, we still need quite a few.


Not everyone realizes that some stores donate brand new items to the Goodwill,
sometimes the packaging is just damaged and sometimes the item itself is damaged,
but sometimes there seems to be no apparent reason.
I often see items from Target, and on rare days from Anthropologie.


Today was one of those wonderful rare days!
While I didn't score any milk glass vases today,
I did score three brand new Anthropologie cups.
There were still a lot more new Anthro cups left behind for someone else to buy in this particular Goodwill.
I forgot to take a photo of the telltale Anthro bird logo on the bottom of the cups.


 This gold K Anthropologie mug happens to be my soon-to-be-married daughter's initial,
so I bought it for her.
The gold cups come out at Anthro at Christmastime.




I love this Anthropologie cup's fancy painted interior.
While I certainly don't need more cups, 
 I couldn't pass up buying three Anthro cups for less money than one cup is in the regular store.
(I did have to cull out some lesser loved cups in my cupboard in order to welcome these newcomers, though.)


I do love cute cups, so this was a fun little treat!

    1. JES, you have to keep your eyes open and go often to find the treasures. I live just minutes away from 4 Goodwills so I can stop by easily.

  3. Beautiful! I so wish I could find something beside junk in the housewares part of our Goodwill store. I'm with Barbie. I need to come thrift store shopping with you! And the milk glass vases table arrangement sounds stunning. Can't wait to see all the details. (Culling cups has become part of my monthly routine. They multiply in the cabinet!)

    1. The trick is to pop in often and be good at scanning with your eyes to spot the treasures in the midst of the junk!

  4. You should plan a thrifting retreat for all of us to join you - except we might all want the same things and that wouldn't work out too well! I love these cups you found. They are wonderful! Perfect for a relaxing cup of tea.

  12. Finding a treasure at the thrift store gives the exact same feeling as finding a few unexpected dollars in you pocket! Love it when that happens. Those cups are great!
