Five Things I Scored at the Goodwill Today:
The author of this book visited our school several years ago. The kids seem to like his books a lot, so I figured for 38 cents, I could check it out- then put it on my own kids' bookshelf.
This is a piece of Blue Ridge (pottery? china? I don't quite know...) I had a friend several years ago whose mother had an antique shop and she was always picking up pieces of Blue Ridge. I don't know how collectible it is or what it goes for, but I got it for $2.38. Does anyone know anything about Blue Ridge?
These 2 cups were taped together and were a whopping 88 cents. I like the shape of them- I figure I can use them for soup.
Our neighbor gave us the Fisher Price dollhouse complete with, well, everything. This camper goes with the dollhouse and people and was only $3.38. Lydia has already played with it, and it's so cool how it opens up and the beds flop down. It is "gently used"- not dirty and nasty at all.
This is marked "Ardsley" on the bottom, as well as "International Silver Co.". I thought I could clean it up and then use it for a floral arrangement. It was $2.38.
So, for a about $10, I did quite well, I think.
