I am fortunate to have a really great Goodwill store in a neighboring town. I found this wonderful old handknit wool afghan, and the vintage spools of mending thread there today, at very reasonable prices.
Even better, right next door to the regular Goodwill store is the "Last Chance" outlet. This is where all the items that aren't sold at the regular Goodwills in the area are sent. Here the prices are slashed 50% to 80%. You find a lot of useless junk here, but sometimes you find some real treasures... like this vintage framed Rin Tin Tin print.
And this adorable little girl advertising Hood Sasparilla, also vintage, and in excellent shape. How much did I pay for these treasures you ask? Why, a mere 29 cents each! That's what I paid for the two old ball shaped planters too. 29 stinkin' cents!! I LOVE IT!
My kitty, Pansy, approves of my new, old wool afghan.
