I love goodwill!

Yesterday FI and I decided we'd make a trip to goodwill to see if we could find some chandelier themed house items to put on our candy buffet.

Didn't find those...BUT I did find

1 old school candy jar with the silver round lid in the front(think penny candy when we were little) for $1.38! They are like $15 on ebay at the cheapest!

& I was going to buy hat boxes for the rest of my diy card box this week..

I found a HUGE set of like 5 stacking hat boxes with lids brand new never used for $2.38!

I went out of there spending like $4 on probably $40 worth of stuff!

My ma and I are going to check out 3 other ones in iowa city this weekend!

Have any of you found great finds at goodwill for your wedding?

I love Goodwill also - the one closest to here is actually pretty nice for a Goodwill store.


I bought a pair of Nina heels for less than $30.  When I was there I saw some Tommy Hilfiger jeans for $3 and a few not so bad formals for less than $30.


I plan on shopping them more often!

I go every week to see the new arrivals.  Me and my sister have been obsessed since we were kids.  I donate there often too.  The only thing I don't like is their little section where you have to bid on the items.

I never go to Goodwill, but I'm starting to rethink that! :)
