Goodwill and Church Sale

Hey yall!  I don't know about your local Goodwill, but, at mine, if you spend 10.00 or more you get a blue card.  Every 10.00 after that, you get your card marked.  When you fill up your blue card, you get to buy 20.00 worth of stuff for FREE!!.  I Stopped 2 days ago with a full card and saw this chair.  It was marked 30.00.  I waited till the next day and asked if they would take 20.00 for it, and they did, so I actually got the chair for free.  The seat and arm covers were a little dirty, I took a chance and machine washed on gentle and cold water, and they turned out fine.  There is 1 button in the tufting missing, but, I will deal with that later.  I also picked up these 2 small plates and some donuts...(not pictured) and a church sale...the rhinestone star pin 1.99 and the necklace faux pearl necklace 1.00 , and the bottle 1.00 at Goodwill.  Seriously, if you looked at my debit card statement...you would shutter and all of the Goodwill debits!!  Ignore the background. I took these pictures in my garage!!  Later Gators!!  Rhonda


  1. The chair is fabulous. We don't have the blue card at my GW, but what a great idea. Your plates and necklace are also just gorgeous. Great finds. Hugs, Marty

  2. Hello, What a wonderful deal, love it.

  3. Love your chair, such a pretty shade of blue.
    Our GW has a frequent buyer card and they swipe it everytime you purchase something. After so many points you get 25% off your purchase, gotta love that!


  4. Love the chair!! The little star is like the one I purchased at a yard sale for 1.00.

  5. What a great chair...and who doesn't love free! I wish our goodwill had the blue card, I love that idea~!

    Blessings as always
