The Thrill of the Hunt

Normally I am not a Goodwill shopper, which is funny because I enjoy scouring consignment and antique stores for great home finds. After reading Emily A Clark’s blog and learning about all the great goodies she has found at Goodwill, I was inspired! My mother-in-law is also a big Goodwill shopper, so when she was in town last week I suggested we check it out. Now trust me when I say most of it is junk. You have to be lucky or have a good eye. Right when we walked in there was a fur coat on a mannequin that had literally been brought in that day. It was in mint condition for $30! I quickly scarfed that up, as I adore faux and real fur (sorry to any PETA lovers). I mean where can you find a real fur coat for that cheap? How fabulous is this jacket going to look with a turtleneck, skinny jeans and boots this fall!

Lately, I had been looking for something to hang Sterling’s outfits on above his changing table. I came across this and thought, perfect! Best part it was only $2.95!

Hideous colors, but nothing a can of white gloss spray paint couldn’t fix!
This is what it looked like after! Pretty cute I think!

While I won’t be shopping at Goodwill everyday, I am now alot more open to the idea of looking for some treasures here! So, next time I go on one of my cleaning sprees and drop my old junk off, I might just pop in and check out other people’s old junk!

    It turned out so cute! Good job! And you better not give that coat away. Keep it. It's so Zoe.
