Goodwill Goodies

Every other Saturday, Goodwill offers 50% off everything in their central Arizona stores. Today, we visited three stores in Phoenix.

I came home with four decorating books from the '70s and '80s. Many of the rooms are hideously dated, some are boring, but a lot of them are pretty cool. Such as one where Con-Tact paper is used to cover almost every surface in a kitchen. I'd like to post pictures, but I don't want to violate any copyright laws.

My real prize for the day was this Coventry Castilian tid bit tray. It will look great with my Ironstone collection. Problem is, my Ironstone/Granada shelves are pretty full, but for $3, I'll find room.

That is an awesome deal. $3 for that? I would have jumped on that if I saw it too!

Craig, I would have paid the $6 sticker price, but since this was half-off day...

I searched in vain for more pieces in the same pattern. I would have LOVED a covered sugar or lidded veggie bowl, but no dice.

Incidentally, there's currently a tid-bit just like mine on ebay. The seller is asking $54.50. Personally, I don't think it's worth that, but we'll see. I have it on my watch list.

For the purposes of this blog, posting a page or two out of a whole book for educational purposes wouldn't violate anything.
