Objects Of My Affection - PB&J

I don't know if it was because I only had $10 on me when I walked into Goodwill today, but I found nearly everything priced too high. For example...
This chest, while nice and in pretty good condition, was $200!? The only explanation I can think of is that they are hoping to get $100 for it on Saturday when everything is half off.
This town & country pattern Pyrex bowl was $8. I just wasn't into it for some reason. There was also this very chipped & faded solid color set of mixing bowls, the smallest piece was $6 - crazy.
I wish I had a place to put these pretty blue jars (especially the one on the right)
I ended up just getting this small but lovely apothecary jar for $1.99
and a nice polo shirt for my dad for $1 (it was dollar day)

I also made a GW stop earlier this week and found...
This pretty butterfly gold pattern Pyrex with lid. It was only $5.99.

  1. I'm with you! I think GW has been jackin up the prices...some things are just not worth what they are asking. But I guess they are going with the economy!

  2. The prices here seem to be creeping up too. Sometimes, I just have to say, "What ARE they thinking???
    Love what you did find.
    Thanks for linking up with Treasure Hunt Thursday.

  3. Yup, GW and Salvation Army have gone so over the top with insane overpricing. Their pricing, to me, is still way too high even on 1/2 off days. I have ranted so much on this subject on my blog! LOL You found a nice pyrex dish and it even has the lid (I have a hard time find complete pieces with the lid). Can't wait to see what you do with the jar! Thanks for joining TTF. Have a wonderful Mother's Day!

  4. You scored very nicely! Love your finds--your pyrex I think was mentioned this months magazine of Country Living--have a great weekend. Patty

  5. Ooo, Ahhh, Ohhh . . . I love the Pyrex and the blue apothecary jars. Great thrifty finds! Thanks for sharing.

  6. Lovely blog! I, too, have noticed an increase in prices at the thrift stores....depressing.

  7. Goodwill pricing isn't bad here. It's very cheap compared to all the other shops. You'll get inconsistent pricing on items - $5.05 for a Pyrex bowl one day, $8.08 the week after.

    Buy that same bowl at Value Village, you'll be paying $8.99+.

    And Goodwill doesn't have the 13% HST that Value Village has.

  8. LOVE Butterfly Gold, those are in great shape!! I NEVER find lids! Sweet!

  9. I agree. I think the prices at GW are crazy high.
