Super Shabby Thriftiness
I'm so excited. Tonight I got the most screamin' deal at the Goodwill. I don't know if all Goodwills are partnered with Targets, but around here they are. That means that what doesn't sell at Target ends up at one of the local Goodwills, or the "G-dub" as we like to call it.
Anyway, I was at GW a couple of days ago and saw a shelf I wanted to get for Sammie's room. It was one of the Target kids' room furniture pieces and it was nice, still in the box and only $35!! It was a little taller and more narrow than what she has in there now and I thought it would work better. Plus I would then be able to use her current bookshelf in the nook outside our room for a little "library". Win, win all around so I was off to the GW.
I was worried that my little shelf would be gone. A screaming deal like that would surely be gone by now, but nope it was there and waiting. As I walked over to it, I saw something that really caught my eye, a big ol' "Simply Shabby Chic" box. Inside was a tall bookcase with a cute little draw on the bottom. I was even more excited when I looked at the price and it was only $40!!! I know this furniture is expensive so it was a no brainer to get it. It looks like the only reason it was at GW was the fact the box was pretty thrashed. We looked inside and everything seems to be there. I'm so excited!! Joji is going to put it together tomorrow :0)
