Thrifty Goodwill

Debbiedoos is having a new party every Sunday over at her blog

for all of us to show off our thrifty finds from the weekend!

So, I thought I better put a post together of some things I found at the Goodwill store.

Here we have two cloches that were $2.49 each! I thought that was a good price but later at another store I saw just the glass for .49. I should have bought it but figured I was getting carried away!

I bought this little candle stand as I want to mount the cloche on top of it. It was only $1.49!

Then for whatever reason, I decided that this paper towel holder had possibilities!! I think I can paint it real nice to go in my French Country/Old World kitchen that I hope to be working on before Thanksgiving!!

I already transformed these salt and pepper grinders so I am sure I can come up with something for the paper towel holder!

I have high hopes for this picture of the Declaration of Independence. It was $6 but I am sure I can use the frame elsewhere!

I just think it is so cool! It is already "old" looking so it won't take much for me to do something with it!
The chair is pitiful!! My husband found a matching pair these on the side of the road and brought them home. I am getting ready to upholster them so I will show them at a later date!!

I am thinking of using just the print and mounting it on a board, making the board look old, and hanging it in our living room. We'll see what happens!

Last but not least is this chair!
I paid $7.99 for it and it is very dirty! I plan to recover the seat and use it in my sewing/craft room that I am making kind of more feminine!!

I hope you have enjoyed my buys and I can't wait to show you the transformations!!

I am linking these thrifty buys to Today's Thrifty Treasures over at
