Goodwill Opens in Huntley

Today was the opening day for the Goodwill store in Huntley.  Of course, I had to go.  It was a mob scene.  You couldn't even get around the store.  The employees were constantly putting out new merchandise, so I had to go thru the store a few times.  I found the kids some items and I found a really old, neat porcelain dish for 49 cents.  I also found a really nice aluminum basket with a glass dish insert for 99 cents and an old wrought iron basket with a wooden handle for $1.99.    The best find were 2 vintage tablecloths.  The one is a map of Florida and is very colorful.  It will be going up for auction on Ebay soon.  It is highly collectible.  I also found 2 nice pins, of which one will be used on my knitting projects.   The best part of all is that I had a 20% off coupon to use.  (I have 2 more to use that are good until the end of November).  Looks like I will be going back quite often. 

Down the road from the Goodwill on Rte 47 is the Sweat Repeats Thrift Store.  I stopped in and found another crocheted apron.  This one is in blue and white.  I also found a pink apron and it was half off since it was pink for Breast Cancer Awareness month.  Not bad for $1.50.  I also found another pin to use on my knitting projects.  Next week they will open the Christmas wonderland, so I'll stop by again then.

This is going to be a fun treasure hunt filled week.  Tomorrow is the Huntley First Congregational Church rummage sale.  I never miss this huge one.  Then on Friday is the Autumn Drive in Woodstock where about 13 farms/homes open up for selling goodies, pumpkins, you name it.  It is a lot of fun and the weather should be cool for some Autumn fun.  My cousin Barb and friend Mary will be joining me.  I can't wait!
