GOODWILL HUNTING AND AN INVITATION!

I’m pretty sure that you guys are tired of me sharing my Goodwill finds with you.

Last time I shared my finds with you I received many emails asking me what Goodwills I shop in Atlanta.

French provincial chest, a little high, but it’s a good deal for a solid piece of furniture (changing table?)

I’m still kicking myself for not “needing” this sofa… Seriously, $90?

Myssie screamed at me for not getting this table! Its was $40! A very solid piece. It was great!

The bird house was $3.23 and no I didn’t get it (somebody slap my hand now)…I didn’t get the milk glass dish either…Am I allowed to curse on here?!?!

Lamps for my living room? Nope, I left them too… Oh, and let’s not get started on this cute little table. And guess what? I left it too!

So, here is where the invitation comes in…. I would like for you guys to join me on a Goodwill meet up! I have not decided on a date because I want to see how many of you are interested. I think this will be a great time for me to meet some of my readers and for you to get all of the great things that I leave behind. Once I see how many people are interested, I’ll set a date for the meet up.

So will you join me?!

I can not believe these finds. Each piece I was thinking about what I could do to make them fabulous. A meet up sounds great! Too bad I didn't live just around the corner, sounds like a great idea...

A meetup sounds great, like Janell too bad I don't like around the corner. And you mean to tell me that you didn't get the coffee table?

Lakeitha I am in Chattanooga (about 90 miles away) but come to Atlanta a lot because my entire family lives there. Let me know what you come up with, I would love to try and meet up with you! p.s. you are way stronger than me!

Erika at BluLabel Bungalow said...

I think a meet up is in order. I will probably buy all the goodies you keep leaving behind!

Planning Something Special.. said...

You bet!! Name the date, time and place and I'll be there with bells and whistles.

Jade @ Flip Flops + Pearls Design said...

Lakeitha! How could you just leave some of things there?!?!

Wish I could do a meetup with you!!

Decorchick! said...

Wow, I'm slappin' your hand. :) I would love to meet up too, but I'm in good ole Texas. Boo!

Mrs. Chic said...

If I lived closer I would so be there!! Your Goodwill prices can't be beat!

I would love to meet up! I don;t have my own blog (yet) but frequently visit many and have been wanting to meet up with some ladies that share my love for a good thrift store!! In fact, some of those items look very familiar (particularly the round mirror...Northlake??). I live in Stone Mountain, but frequent the Northlake, Buford Hwy, Lawrenceville Hwy, Snellville, and Roswell Road Goodwills! I love living in metro Atlanta because there is always a good will nearby!! I can be reached at sy _ johnson 75 @ hotmail dot com.

Brand New and Beautiful said...

Great finds! I love the random prices on the items. $13.91?

HapiMommy said...

I think you have the best GW around. The meetup sounds great, but I'm in Dallas.

My truck would have been loaded w/those great finds!

Soul Pretty said...

Hum...travel to Atlanta and meet up at The Goodwill...dream.

Averill said...

These are some awesome finds -- I wish my Goodwill had these kinds of bargains!

Myssie said...

I still can't believe you left the coffee table!!!

Why don't you come to StL and we can go to the GW here?? I'm sure your husband and kids wouldn't mind!!

Nina Patricia @ The Adventures of Nina Patricia said...

darn, darn, darn, you live too far!!! I love every piece. Specially the last table

Designers @ Heart of Decor said...

I don't think I could ever get tired of seeing your goodwill finds!

As long as I'm available I AM SO THERE! (Weekends work best for me). Hope to meet up soon. -Natasha

I could never have passed those things up, just not strong enough, I have a lot of items that weren't needed piled up on the back porch for future projects. When I did the dinette make over I had no need, when I finished it, I liked it so much that I sent my other one to my mother's for storage. Sherryd

Because of you I started back going to Goodwills all over L.A. I have bought alot of good stuff. I have a chair I need to restuff the seating and another I am making a pillow cover. Now I have to tell myself not to stop in every other day because they have loads of good stuff. LOL I need to read your instructions on refurbishing a lacquer chest that I have had for 20 years. You are awesome!

This sounds awesome. I would love to do a Goodwill meet-up. It would be a perfect chance to meet tons of people who share the same Goodwill love that I do. Let me know when and where. xo, c-
