It’s been a little while now, but St. Louis was recently blessed with a Goodwill by the Pound. It’s a lot of crazytown where books and glassware are 79 cents per pound and everything else is 39 cents per pound. They have these giant weigh scales at the checkout that you just roll your cart up on. My kind of party. I went when it first opened and it was pretty quiet. JT and I went a little more recently and it was CROWDED!!!
It’s like a last chance Charlie for all this stuff. They push out these giant blue bin/trucks every fifteen minutes or so and take others away (for good! Exterminate! Exterminate! Sorry, husband started watching Dr. Who and even I can hear the evil shrieking from the next room.) The furniture here is usually T.O.A.S.T. but there’s always at least something to be found of interest.
Here’s what I brought home:
Sometimes I wonder why I buy things but the thought of it maybe going away (forever!) means you just have to snatch it up and sent it back to Goodwill in a few months when you’ve regained your senses. (PS – Photo-editing faux-pas – that was supposed to say “produce” not “product”. Chalk that one up to a Friday!)
So, random I know. Next door to the Goodwill by the Pound is Warehouse of Stuff where we picked up two somethings for my basement lair/studio-in-the-works. But I’m still stringing that one out for another day . . . .
Here’s what was going on while I was taking my “stuff” photos. Idiot, ridiculous, lazy-a$$ dogs.
That couch’s days are numbered — it’s soon to move into the Black Horse Studio where the guys have been recording! See more at www.grandbeautymusic.com. (Also I think JT is going to post up his latest Craigslist find there soon. He drug me up to Godfrey, IL last week for this thing. And that’s how I got my rugs. #lifeisatradeoff)
Have a great weekend and a Happy Easter everyone. I should have some good stuff in the hopper next week (semi-Easter pun intended). Cheers – CT
