Show and Tell Friday


OOPS! didn't mean to put my cat in there and I can't seem to delete it?! :)



Once again it is time for Show and Tell Friday. Please visit Kelli's blog at http://kellishouse.blogspot.com/. It is a great way to meet new friends and show them your wonderful treasures.


The other day I was early getting to Aaron's school so I stopped in the Goodwill store on that side of town. As I walked down one of the isles, I saw this mirror in a lady's hand. She was taking her time in looking at it. I stayed real close to her waiting for her to put it down. I was curious to see it too. I snatched it up just a quick as she had it out of her hands! They had a whole matching bathroom set but I only bought the two mirrors. I think they are genuinely old. I paid $1.50 each!
Sorry, but it will be late tonight before I can look at everyone elses show and tell!

I could just see you at the Goodwill store waiting for the lady to put the mirror down :) I've done that same thing many times! Enjoy your treasures...

that is cool--what I don't understand is everyone finding good stuff at Goodwill. We only have a Salvation Army story (a Goodwill is being built over at the beach)--the SA store is basically real junk---but maybe things will start improving!! I like the cat better, however!! Funny!

Great old mirrors! Your waiting and watching sure paid off!

What a terrific price for these beautiful mirrors. Glad that lady put them down so you could snatch them up.

Have a wonderful day.

Hi Sondra :) How fun to find treasures and for such a price! Thanks for sharing them. Blessings! Q

I always find it amazing what one can find at stores like Goodwill...even more amazing that people actually get rid of such wonderful items!! The mirrors are gorgeous and they do indeed look quite old! xo

Sondra, you did so well! In Australia, such shops are referred to as Opp. Shops. Opp is short for opportunity. You certainly made the most of your opportunity

Fabo mirrors! You got a steal girl! I also like the picture of your kitty and your son's gorgeous hair! LOL!

I do the same thing, I kind of hover around when someone is holding onto something I want, but I don't want to look too interested because that might make them want the item more! Oh the strategies of thrift shopping! :o) Sharon

I guess I missed your S&T last week. I try to get around to all of them, but sometimes can't.

These mirrors are great! I love the old hand mirrors, etc.
