Ode to the Goodwill Outlet

The Goodwill Outlet has been my favorite place to find vintage lately. It has been a wonderland of Christmas Kitsch! AND the other day we ran into Eartha Kitsch in the parking lot!! It was so awesome! I couldn't stop talking about it for the rest of the night.

This is what the outlet looks like inside. Look at all that junk!

Travis actually likes going there more than I do. He goes a few times a week.

Amazing things like this can be yours for only 1.49 a pound!
Here is some of the stuff I've picked up recently.

yarn wreath! yarn trivets and pot holders! vintage felt stocking.

cute little mouse and a sparkly plastic wreath.

my favorite might be this candle. it is over a toilet paper roll.

I've got tons of this plastic greenery. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it all, but I can't resist.

There was a big box FULL of these letters but I didn't know what I could do with them, so I just got the R's. And some ampersands.

cute santa basket? it has a bunch of magnets on the back, but is still too heavy to stay on my fridge.

I now have stockings for every living creature in my house. I'm going to try and resist getting any more.

and this little pile of treasures is from half off day at Music City Thrift. I was so excited to find that cute deer! And I have been eyeing those Junior Deluxe Editions for a LONG time. They had them in a case for 10 bucks each for so long! They finally lowered the price to 6 bucks and then they were half off so i finally got my hands on them.


  1. AMPERSANDS!!!! Love. I have a weird obsession with them. I even got one a tattoo of one on my wrist.


  2. ooh hard to pick but I think the knitted wreath and the candle toilet rool cover are my faves. and who might eartha kitsch be?!!!

  3. Eartha Kitsch? Great name!

    I so wish we had an outlet here in Louisville! I loved going there when I was in Nashville in OCt. I still need to put my finds up on the blog!

    Love the little mouse and the deer is so sweet!

  4. Oh, and I do hope you show more details on that Animals storybook! It looks so cute!

  5. Oh! There is a Goodwill similar to this one near me, but it certainly doesn't have as much of a selection! It's so fun to dig around in the bins, almost like treasure hunting!

    You found some great things, I bet your house is looking festive.

    xoxo mama wolf.

  6. the cat stocking is my favorite christmas item in your house. oh my goodness. if you ever decide for some crazy reason you don't want it, i'll pay you for it.

  7. Eartha Kitsch at the kitsch mecca goodwill outlet! Who would have thought?! I would have been talking about that all day too.
    And I WANT to HAVE a RUMMAGE at that place!!!

  8. Look at all of the cool, cute loot! It's so hard to believe that some of these lovelies weren't crushed in those bins. Fate, I say! I'm always intrigued by that papier mache snowman with the tie and glasses and wonder if he's for sale - but am always afraid to ask because I never get anything but hateful cashiers. :)

    It was so good to meet you and Travis that day. There I was in the parking lot and I thought, "I wonder if the Say It Ain't So's will be here!" and not a minute later, there you were! I was all a-twitter when I picked the Mister up right after. Then I felt awfully embarrassed because I'd been out in the rain in a cow field all day and realized, "Oh god, I am a complete mess! And oh god...I smell like cow pies!"

  9. I have yet to go there! I seriously cannot wait to do so after seeing these pictures!


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave me a comment!
