After buying three items off of my list at the local St. Vincent de Paul thrift store, I began to head over to Goodwill looking for more great finds, specifically a hassock for my mom.
I am not a big fan of Goodwill because they tend to price things a bit higher. Still, typically the prices are lower than the cost of new.
Though I had just checked out the store two days earlier, looking a hassock (didn’t find one), stuff gets dropped off daily so I figured I would just run in and see if there was one there.
On the way to Goodwill, I remembered there was another thrift shop sponsored by a local church so I figured I would stop there first.
Not only was I surprised to actually find one, the price was just $12. That is at least a $13 savings on the price of a new one, which, Google search tells me is about $25 for a similar one I see on Etsy.
The hassock is in like-new condition and, here’s a bonus, it matches the furniture we already have!
You know, there are days when I head out to the thrift stores and return home with nothing. And then there are days like today when I feel like I struck gold!
What about you? Been thrifting lately?
