Autumn Goodwill Hunting

Take me to the Mall and I could walk out with nothing, but a thrift store...well that's were the treasures are. Two Fridays ago instead of heading home to do the usual home stuff , I ended up at my favorite Goodwill. I did not leave empty handed this time, a Fall overhaul is more like it. Trinket boxes, jewelery, frames, flowers, basket, and vintage photography book of  San Francisco were part of the loot.

I found a whole new Fall wardrobe with a few warm season items mixed in. 3 pairs of jeans, 4 blouses, 3 tank tops, 3 t-shirts, 3 knit sweaters, 1 pair frilly boho shorts, a warm fuzzy never worn patterned sweater, and brown suede leather boots. I was in the zone!

The piece de resistance, my Halloween costume! I need a few more accessories but the bones are there. Can you tell who I'm going to reincarnate  ? Wishing you a wonderful beginning to this week. Do you still dress up for Halloween?


  1. Oh, I wish I still dressed up for Halloween, but no parties to go to. I used to dress up and have parties all the time when my kids were little. I can't imagine who you're going to be, Holly. You really made out at Goodwill. There's always so many interesting and cool things there, and many vintage pieces. One of my favorite things I have, a gold heart trinket box, is from Goodwill. Looking forward to seeing your whole costume. Love that red feather boa.


  2. Awesome goodies! sounds like you had a great time.
    looks like you might be a ...Catrina calavera???
    have a great day...glad you found some good stuff.

  3. Awesome! I love it when Thrift stores come through for you more than other places!

  4. My Piano Man was reading over my shoulder, and said, "You two must be related." I do, indeed, love my thrifty finds, too.

    I have no idea what you are going to be. Do tell. I still dress up. This year, the Little Princess wants to be a mermaid and requested I dress up as a sea witch--she wants to walk around with a sign that reads, "I sold her my voice for food". I find it so hysterical that I just might have to.

    Happy 1st day of October! ♥

  5. Score!!!! Wow!!! I'm not that lucky but I do love treasures at thrift stores when I do happen upon them. I have happened upon some good ones lately. I should be more grateful.
