Goodwill Scores!

So I KNOW I am supposed to be "Using what I Have"!
BUT.....



Mr. S. was out hunting for fish under the ice this weekend.....
What's a woman to do?
Go Gathering of course....and I scored big time at Goodwill yesterday!



By the time my daughter and I checked out.....our cart was full!
Wait 'til you see what we found!
On Saturday, I spent some time trying to update the family room couch pillows with fabric I had....but it didn't go so well....nothing worked.....I hated everything I tried....and was planning to go to the fabric store to find something....

And there on the GW shelf....these wonderful pillows called to me....


They were $3.99....
There were 3 of them....
I stood there wondering whether to buy them....was it worth 12 whole dollars?
 But I figured that the inserts were worth it if they didn't work.....


But they look amazing!  I think they have the look of Marimekko that I love!



Do you ever laugh at yourself for the internal discussion about whether to spend $10 the thrift store for something you wouldn't hesitate to buy for 4 times that amount in a "real" store"?








Then in the basket aisle....these rattan placemats caught my eye....$1.99 each!
If I turn them upside down they will be great trivets to protect the dining room table when I have a buffet.











And this little basket for $.99.....you can never have too many baskets!











My Valentine decor collection is a little sparse.....and this cute little leather Heart Shaped box will be a nice addition....a $.99 find....I am thinking it will look great with some chocolates spilling out of it.










These 4 matching coffee cups.......$.49 each.....
The color is great in our kitchen.
Now I need to get rid of at least 4 mismatched ones taking up room on the shelf!















But the star of the day is this little baby!







The Rumrill sticker caught my eye!
The price was right.....$1.99
I sort of knew that Rumrill was "good"...
When I did my research I found this for sale advertised as "a rare find"!
Does anybody out there know anything more?
Do you think it is valuable?










I did take 2 big bags of clothes for donations....and only bought 2 new jackets...





And....
Since Mr. S only caught a few fish....
I think the "hunter/gatherer" score is even!
