Club G.W. {Goodwill} No. 19, Features and the Goodwill Happy Dance

November 7, 2011

I've been holding off sharing one of my MOST FAVORITE CLUB G.W. FINDS thus far, what with the floor remodel chaos going on in my house lately.  But now I'm ready to share!  Warning:  If you're the jealous type you might just hate envy me for this!

I have my Chickadee #1 to thank for spying this little beauty as soon as we walked into one of my favorite Club G.W.'s. I have to say that I saw it and thought to myself that it must be for customers to sit on because it looked brand new and probably not for sale. (Does that ever really happen at Goodwill? What was I thinking?)
But she made me proud and pounced on that baby like a real thrifter (she had a good teacher!).  Once I saw the $4.99 price tag I was ecstatic. I brought it up to the register and asked them to hold it for me while I shopped. They said I had better pay for it then and there because they couldn't hold it for me if someone else came up and wanted it! Well that was a no-brainer. We paid and left, with me feeling almost like I was stealing something! (I'm not kidding.)

I swear, pillows are the most versatile accessory!  Remember these?

And I love to incorporate my grainsacks wherever I can!

(Has anyone noticed the FLOOR?  SShhhhhh, I'll show more in a later post!)

In case you've been living under a rock never seen these types of chairs before, they're called Parsons chairs and they're really expensive (by my standards).  Take a look.


$4.99 indeed.  Some people might only use them as dining room chairs, but I think they can go just about anywhere.  I think they work well especially in corners. Or hallways. Or foyers. Of course it would have been great to find more than one, but I've gotta have faith that there are other ones out there somewhere just waiting for me to find them!

Okay then, on to the Features from last week's Club G.W.  We have some old and some new faces.  Thanks for sharing the love and placing my link on your blog post, that's really how others find me!  I'm grateful for all of your participation and support!

Melissa @ Shabby Love
Now this is what I call Thrifty Chic.  She used an old crib mattress spring as a memo/inspiration board.   I have wanted to do this for a while but was afraid Mr. CBD would think I was crazy!  I also wanted to "rustify" it in some way first....any ideas?

Checkers, anyone?  This table went from ho-hum thrift store table to quite a masterpiece, wouldn't you say?  And the best part?  It only cost $5.00. 

Cheryl @ Artsy Fartsy (Love that name!)
This thrifty old $2.00 suitcase was craftily turned into a vintage travel trunk!

Old, dark and outdated hutch (you know the kind, relegated to your garage) updated with a splash of white and new hardware.  Love it.

Thanks again, ladies!  Now grab a Featured button and wear it proudly!


Finally, party time.

I love Parson's Chairs, they also work nicely pulled up to a vintage desk. It's always nice to have extra seating in the house especially when they look like they belong, and not just stored somewhere. Well spotted by your daughter, and it looks wonderful!

Betsy@My Salvaged Treasures said...

Wow! That chair looks good any way you decorate it. What a great bargain. You were smart to grab it an run; if you turned your back, it would vanish.
Oh yes, I noticed your floors. Must be so nice now that the dust has settled:-)
