Great Goodwill Finds

Last night I went on a little shopping spree because I wanted to pick up a few things for my cousin’s baby shower next week. I also stopped at our local Goodwill store (thrift store). Every now and then I like to check and see if they have some ‘hidden treasures’. My co-worker finds awesome goodies there all the time…and last night I finally was successful! 😀 I found a package with the cutest stationery set and bought it for $2.99 😀 Thank you to whoever donated it to Goodwill! It looks a little old but it’s still in great condition and I can’t wait to write letters with it.

Furthermore I found two old books which I’m going to take apart and use for my envelope making. ♥ (Here’s my envelope making tutorial)

One is an old world atlas from 1992 ($2.99) and the other book is an old Disney book called “Look and find Mickey and friends”, which was $1.99.  I picked it because the pictures in it are colorful, fun and big enough to use for my envelopes. 🙂

If you have a Goodwill store or other thrift stores in your area…check them out, you never know what treasure you might find! 😀
