It turns out I’ve been doing a lot of Goodwill shopping lately. And finding lots of good stuff!
A few weeks ago, I found this silver dish at the Goodwill location on Pantops.
I really loved the rainbow effect of the patina on it, so for $1.95, I bought it!
Another day, I headed across town to the Goodwill on 29, where I found tons of books. I’m normally kind of snooty about the books I buy, because some secondhand books can feel really dirty. But I took a look, and found some that seemed to be in really good condition.
I was excited about this one, because I know nothing about British royal history. Maybe one day I’ll actually get around to reading it and learn a little something!
Speaking of British history, the English major in me geeked out quite a bit when I saw this one on the shelf:
Next up was another novel by Jeffrey Eugenides, since I read Middlesex a few months ago and LOVED it. (Book review hopefully coming soon!)
Then I grabbed this hardcover novel, because the plot sounded interesting, and I was on a roll:
I was quite happy with my haul, but then I saw this cute little gold tea light dish:
So I grabbed it, too! Since all paperbacks are $1 and hardbacks are $2, along with the gold dish, my total for this stop was $5.95 plus tax.
For less than $8.50 total, I’m pretty happy with my recent Goodwill runs. Has anyone else found anything awesome in a Goodwill lately?
