Goodwill BDAY Goodies…

Yesterday was my birthday and I was lucky to get some great gifts!  One of them was this beautiful vintage Pendleton hat from the Seattle Goodwill off the  ShopGoodwill.com site.  I couldn’t wait to wear it today so I paired it with a Seattle Dearborn Goodwill goody… this vintage Echo scarf.

I am organizing another Summer Goodwill Photo shoot soon on our friends sailboat and these two items are definitely making that shoot.  Enjoy your weekend Thrift-Public… tomorrow is another BDAY party for our little one, so I’ll post images next week.

Goodwill Garden *Update*

This last month I planted a Goodwill Garden on our balcony and this weekend I wanted to leave you with something inspirational…  So  today (in over 3 years of being here) a lot more activity is sprouting up in our little corner of the complex!

Have a GREAT Memorial Day Weekend and…

Go, Go, Seattle Sunshiny Summer!

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?!!
