Goodwill Housewares

I'm starting to think Target runs in my blood! Visited the Goodwill (again...suprise, suprise!) and it seemed like lots of the items which grabbed my attention were Target brands (like this dress). But just to show some variety, here are some of the non-Target items that caught my eye.

$0.99 Coca-cola glasses (which also runs in my blood).

A large, blue striped, china set from $0.99 to $3.99 each!

And a ridiculous mug! There'sTONS of healthy ways to add flavor!

And then this Target pillow came along. I've mentioned before that Goodwill receives donations from Target, and I was totally stoked to find this baby--brand new (i.e. still had the Target tag). I only paid $5.99 for this pillow, now I just need a couch to put it on! And a house to put the couch in. Hopefully I will have good news to share soon on our house hunt!!!

So in the meantime, what's the quirkiest item you've seen (or even bought!) at Goodwill?

P.S. As of this morning my blog reached 10,000 all-time page views! So cool! Thank you so much for reading & following my site! 


  1. I agree, that mug is ridiculous! :)
    I actually just thought of the weirdest thing we bought at Goodwill; it was in Rolla, MO, and it was some kind of closet organizer thing that someone had made. But we repurposed it to hold our big fishtank. It only cost us a few dollars, and then we had to buy a slightly more expensive board from the hardware store to put on top, which kinda cracked us up.
    One of the best things I ever got at Goodwill was right before we got married, I found a set of 8 Corelle dessert plates for super cheap--still being used almost daily to this day! That was in hometown Salina, KS. Then I actually found a matching mug at some point, probably in MO. That was an exciting, unexpected find.
