Good Will Good Day


I went to Goodwill after work today and made some happy finds. I usually go in the morning, but now think evenings might be more promising. I bought a new in the box set of glasses made from wine bottles. I googled and they sell for $25. I had to think hard before paying $4.99 for them(yes I am a cheapo). I collect egg plates and was tickled to find this wooden one for 99cents. I also found the glass jar , it is really heavy and I think it's an older piece. I plan on filling it up with some of my buttons or wooden thread spools. My best find was the quilting goodies.....two square up rulers,six quilting templates, and dresden plate templates. I have wanted to make some dresden blocks and didn't have templates. I'm off tomorrow and hope to get caught up on my jelly roll blocks and finish a baby quilt.

I'm thinking of opening an Etsy shop. I ebayed for years but it is just not what it used to be. Anyone have any luck on Etsy? I have a large antique doll collection to sell and lots of other interesting old stuff.
I tried linking to Trift day Monday on Apron Thrift Girl ...hope it works.

It worked. Thanks so much for taking part in Thrift Share Monday. I find Etsy hit or miss. If you have a niche it can be very successful. I'd certainly give it a go.

Our Goodwill stores give a 10% senior citizen discount. My husband and I always chuckle about that but we take it!
