Goodwill Gardening

Finally!  May is here!  And with it comes the Maypole, Sunshine and eventually May Flowers!!!

So I definitely wanted to celebrate the coming of this month and the changing of seasons with a gardening post!  Just because we Thrifters like to comb the racks of our local (indoor) thrift-store for deals does not mean that we can’t feel the sunshine on our faces as we do things outside the thrift-store!

So to start this month and season change out right I’ve put together a gardening Thriftspriation video during one of our beautiful NW days.  We enjoyed the weekend by attending the Fremont Market to purchase some of our garden sprouts (not something Goodwill sells, live plants) because if we can’t purchase second-hand we want to try and purchase local.  We found this great vendor at the market, Seattle Plant Company (thanks Emily!), and the video shows you how we used our Goodwill purchases, and these items from the Fremont Market (and two other items, gravel and potting soil, from Lowes) to get outside and grow some goodies!

Enjoy the video and get outside to enjoy the sunshine when you can!  Maybe we can encourage some of our local Goodwill stores to start putting racks outside (like a Goodwill sidewalk sale?!) so us shoppers can get some sun rays while we shop?!!

Earth Easter Passover Thrift-haul

Okay Thrift-public, I know my posts have been few & far between lately but between a job-baby-college AND a holiday, I’m lucky I could even GET to a Goodwill in the last two weeks?!

But this weekend, before the sales were gone I popped into the Dearborn store & scored some deals!  See my latest Thrift-haul video below.
