Ok, so some people will tell you to go thrifting on certain days. Many say that Wednesdays are best, and that the weekend is the worst because things are picked over. These bad boys below defunct that rule. I scored these vintage Ball Mason jelly jars at Goodwill on a Saturday… afternoon… on 50% off Saturday. 50% off Saturday is easily the busiest day of the month around these parts.
I plan on using them to store odds and ends in my home office. I’ve already started storing my Target washi tape and ebay bakers twine in them.
I came across this blue Mason jar at a Goodwill when I was between therapy visits. It was $1.50. Cha-ching. The little vintage deer were found at a thrift store in Northwest Indiana. My best friend and I went on a thrift store tour one weekend last fall (mentioned in this post).
Another tip: don’t be afraid to haggle. There are some stores where you can’t haggle, but the deer were at a family-owned thrift store. I went back and forth with the owner and walked out paying $3 for 4 deer.
I found these vintage pink canisters at a Goodwill Outlet. They cost a whopping $1. I gave them a good bath when I got home and stuck a candle in each to get rid of the funky smell.
Do you have a thrifting tip or trick to share?
Who wants to take a field trip to Indianapolis and hit up the Goodwill Outlet with me?
Come back tomorrow for part two!
