Saturday Finds 11/18/2012

The girl that Alica is singing about in this song is me.  Yeahyouknowit. I'm on fire. It should say "these deals were on fire..."

Saturday I hit Goodwill first and bought some new shoes.  I had my eye on these loafers for a couple weeks  because I was hoping that they would go half off one day but negative.  I bought them full price because I was really freaked out that my size would vanish and I would miss out. No worries they still had the tags on them from Target.  They are Merona.  Not used.  Brand new.

Nostalgia Corner in downtown Loveland was next.  This.Place.Is.Awesome.  They have everything plus your grandmas kitchen sink. Not that you would want that but if you did it's there.  I saw it.

 I spent an hour an half (on accident) in there.  I bought an awesome yellow Coke crate and these Letterman jacket letters. I love the way that they look in this old chalk box.

I happened  across some old spools of yarn at a store called Splurge while I was downtown. Look for them inside the yellow crate below. The booth had them marked $4 each but I asked the lady working to call the booth owner and see if I could get a deal if I bought more than 5.  She obliged and I was able to walk out of there with 10 at $2.50 each.  The owner tried to get me to not buy all of them because she wanted a couple.  Ummmm negative lady.  I found them-- they'z mine.

Lastly, I went to an old thrift shop.  I don't even know the name of it but I found a zip lock bag full of old match books from the 50's plus or minus 20 years.  What grabbed my attention was a book from Enid, Oklahoma.  One of my sorority sisters/ college roommates lives there now and works for the Enid so I had to buy that bag and send her a picture of it.

 I also found a milk bottle and a piece of Pyrex that I was missing from a set of nesting bowls. They had 30% yesterday so my Pyrex was cheappppppppp.

Saturday Finds 11/3/12

I had a few hours this morning to do some much needed R&R (Retrieving and Reselling). I found a few new silver trays that are now up on Etsy and a really cute Silver cup that I am going to keep.  Little Boy Blue.  Ahhhh classic.

Words of advice.  If you are going to shop at a thrift store go early.  I was one of the first ones in Goodwill this morning and was looking in the glass cabinet where they keep the "special stuff."  There was a bag of doilies for $6.99 in there so I asked a lady working there if I could open it and look at them.

 She was still in a good mood since they had literally just opened and helped me with a smile.  She cut the bag open for me and let me dig through it for a little while.  I found the most amazing hankies in there with my monogram on them.  What what!  Amazin. 

I didn't want the doilies.  For real no one wants doilies. I sorted the hankies in a pile and the doilies in another.  Then I said...

"Can I just give you these back to sell and Ill keep the hankies??"

What does she do?  Gives me the hankies for half the price even though I was OK  buying the entire lot and was just going to donate the doilies back.  Sweet?  Yes.  Am I pumped? ...I just sneezed.

I haven't cleaned it up yet.. But it'll be fantastic once I do!

See this cleaned up on my Etsy shop here...

Yes... that is a pile of monogrammed hankies...

 I went off the Goodwill track this morning and hit up a couple TJ Maxx and Homegoods stores to find a couple things that I have been wanting... I have been on Etsy looking at crocheted headbands like mad the past few weeks.  They are all $30 more than I want to spend so I found this one below at TJ Maxx. The lady behind the jewelry counter said I looked good with it on so I bought it. Hahahahha.

I know that I have professed my love for anything Lollia brand on here before.  If you don't have anything from this company you should really search it out.  They sell it at Anthropologie but I found a bottle of perfume at TJ Maxx this morning for $14. This fragrance is called Inspire. 

That's what I have for now... Still working on the guest room.  Who knew it was so hard to find a white duvet cover?!?!??!
