Fashionably Late!

I know I'm late for the Goodwill Party that Thrifty Decor Chick had yesterday (that I posted about here). But it's ok to be fashionably late, right?

I popped in to my local Goodwill this afternoon just to see if they had anything new.

When I saw this table, my heart nearly stopped!



I'm not sure you can make out the price tag on this because of my sooo totally fabulous camera, but it was marked $14.99!!!

The clock face has some staining on it, that I believe may be mildew. I asked the lady working there if I could get it for $10.00 because it was going to take a lot to clean it. She said she'd give it to me at the pink tag price and pointed to a sign, that said: "Pink Tag Items 50% Off." What?????!!!!! 50% off????!!!



Now, I don't know if it's technically polically correct to haggle prices at Goodwill, but I did. I got this baby for $7.49!!!!!!!!! Yup, you read it right, $7.49!!!!!!

I'm not worried about the mildew because I will probably remove the clock from it anyway. Otherwise I'll just use a little bleach and it will be as good as new!

Not sure what I'm going to use it for, but whatever I do with it, I'll let you guys know first!

  3. Oh, what a great table. I remember seeing something similar to this at Ethan Allen and it was a fortune. You might want to check it out and keep the clock even if it doesn't work. Could be valuable. It is gorgeous. Great price. Hugs, Marty
