Hey friends! It’s Friday and it really feels like this week went fast to me. I came back from my visit to Jersey – still on my “Goodwill high” and needless to say I’m all “chaired up” - from the ghost chair I found while there to this exciting new one I’m showing you today. The urge struck me to visit my favorite Goodwill in Columbia and as soon as I stepped in the door ” BAM!!” there she was… !!!!!! Scream with me please!!!
This was confirmation that the Goodwill Fairy does exist and has become my guardian thrift angel. I immediately snatched that ticket off and ran to the register. Ok.. here’s the “to die for” moment… the chair was tagged for $22.75.. I was freaking ecstatic – but when the she said I can get a senior discount (my aunt – I haven’t quite reached the age limit yet) – get ready to pass out… because I was actually faint after she rang it up with the discount - $18.00 YES $18.00… You’re probably like me – wondering what’s wrong with it…. well I’ll show you..
….a small wear on this arm – yea – whatever — really?? ..that is definitely a “no big deal”er .. See the name of the maker.. It’s the Mindy chair which retails brand new for $1099.00 which you can view here to see for yourself.
Ok… time to call Jamil with my frantastic -(no typo – frantic and fantastic) good news. Why doesn’t he get excited like me – I’ll never know- but he was happy about it.
I took it to his place and was happy to see it matches his bedding perfectly
His bedroom is coming along… slowly but surely – piece by piece. Once we get everything together.. I’ll show you his place. Remember my motto… “Patience is a virtue”.
Oh and I also found this long bed pillow for $6.99 (4.00 after disct) which I added to his bed. He’s not feeling it because it’s kinda girly .. but I disagree… but I figure I’ll show you..
Do you think it’s too girly??? We’re still battling with it..chuckles… I told him..he’ll thank me later- because it’ll come in handy when he wants to sit up in bed. Well – that’s it for this week’s Friday Finds .. I hope you have a Grandtastic weekend! Ciao!!
