My secondhand finds of the week

secondhand steals and deals button

I made my weekly trip to Goodwill last week and found 2 neat decor items.  Then I went went thrifting, flea marketing, and yardsaling on Saturday and found a few more things. :)

This is what I found:


  • the sailboat was $1.59 at Goodwill and will go PERFECT in my nautical bathroom (that I am so procrastinating on finishing, but I will get DONE SOON!)
  • the candlestick was $1.50 at the flea market and will receive a new coat of paint and join it’s long lost brothers on my hearth :)
  • the urn was $2.00 at a yardsale (had a price tag of $14.99 on the bottom) and has already received a coat of ORB (Oil Rubbed Bronze) spray paint and is patiently waiting for me to finish my topiary to complete it
  • the BRAND NEW, in-the-box snowmen salt and pepper shakers were from a yardsale for $1.00 and will be re-gifted for Christmas (shhhhh…! :)
  • the white urn with the ivy (that has seen better days!) was $1.61 at Goodwill

Did you get any great secondhand deals this week?


  1. You are doing great! I'm pretty happy with things in our apartment right now, so we're not looking for any re-decorating items. But I have gotten some good ideas from you for the future!

  2. Cute sailboat! And I like the larger urn! Good job!
