The Resurgence of Faith in Goodwill

 Lately while making my normal thrifting circuits, I have found the absolute minimum.  It seems like people have yet to indulge in spring cleaning to rid themselves of unwanted vintage goodies. 
I was beginning to loose all hope until I stumbled upon a set of mixing bowls sitting happily on the shelf at goodwill, waiting for me I presume.  When I lifted one up, I was tickled pink to discover they were a complete primary set!  Even better, the red and yellow bowls were the older style, unnumbered. 
I know what you're waiting for, what did they cost?  Weren't they outrageous with Goodwill's pricing strategies of late?  Ready for it...perhaps sit down... the entire set came to a grand total of $8.39!
Also on my short list of recent finds was this Olive Medallion promotional casserole complete with cradle that was Dad was awesome enough to spot and bring home for me!  Go Dad!
Well that's all for now folks, as a bit of a teaser for y'all...I went shopping today.  And I broke my budget big time.  And I came home with 10 pieces of Pyrex.  And another goodie I am super tickled to share!  Hopefully another blog post coming soon!
Linking up over at Thriftasaurus!
Happy thrifting!
