Keeping my grandkids this summer is limiting thrifting days so I found a new way (at least to me) of thrifting from my very own sofa. It is ShopGoodwill.com an online auction site. BTW this isn’t a sponsored post just sharing my experience. Here are some things I found, bid on, and won.
These clocks were in several groups in different auctions so I ended up with some duplicates but that’s ok and you will understand why a bit later.
Isn’t this a beautiful clock face? Someone removed the exterior of the clock but it did not effect its beauty.
One of my favorite clocks out of the whole bunch is the turquoise Seth Thomas travel clock. It even came in its original box. My grandson was so confused by a travel clock. He wanted to know why we didn’t just use our cell phones back then. The concept of not having a cell phone was completely foreign to him.
Showing off a couple of the clocks are two vintage scales I won.
This J&G Meakin chamber pot was a steal.
Look at that gorgeous detail. The pattern is Lily of the Valley.
These mason jars came as a set. I love that someone took the time to turn one of these jars into a lamp. The lamp apparatus is in the jar lid so it works on any mason jar. The linen shade is one I had on hand and it is the perfect size for this mason jar lamp.
Now I have my hot and cold beverages covered. The Cooler Chest is part of vintage décor I’ve been accumulating for my deck update which I will share with you later. Can’t you see this thermos in a cute Christmas vignette?
A lot of the Goodwill Stores that take part in this online auction are on the west coast so shipping to Georgia is pricey. There is a function on the site that takes your registered address and calculates shipping for you. When I find something to bid on I check the shipping cost before placing a bid. A $3 item isn’t much of a bargain if you pay a ton of shipping. What I love most about this site it is seeing vintage goodies that I never see in the thrift stores I frequent.
