Do you love to purchase things "secondhand" @ thrift stores, garage sales, consignment and antique shops? Do you experience the adrenalin rush when you find a great buy in the hunt? I do, and I just had that experience this week. Look at what I found at my local Goodwill store.
Isn't she a beauty! brand new never been used...for a mere $12.99. I found the perfect drum shade @ Ross for $2.99, making the total cost $15.98. Looking on line I found similar lamps for $214 ~ $329.95; making my total savings $198 ~ $313.97 shopping second hand. Yea!
I have great plans for doing a makeover in our bedroom. This lamp will fit perfect with the coastal theme I'm planning. I'll be sharing that with you in the near future. In the mean time, I'll keep collecting my great finds.
Tip of the day :
~Remember when shopping @ secondhand and thrift stores; be flexible keeping your eye out for things you will be using now or in the future. Another big thing to remember is: if you like it take it now for tomorrow it may be gone.
