Yep, Goodwill is my bargain buddy!

Still on the prowl for something my brother is searching for. It's a quest and one I enjoy pursuing.

Didn't find what he needs but I DID come across something I'd wanted last summer for our garden...a soaking hose. A Gilmour 75-foot soaking hose, still in original packaging, called to me for $2.99. Into the cart it went.

I'm a dishware and glassware junkie, along with anything that says, "cooking." Having said that I added 4 lovely salmon-colored Fostoria glass dessert plates for 59 cents each.

It was a good and fun day!

Glass plates should be worth 5 bucks a piece.

Soaker hose new 20 bucks easy.

What a score Katie!

The Fostria Pink Fairfax?
My sister got that one and I got the American pattern,
the entire set though...

No, not Pink Fairfax. Have to look up the pattern in my glass book. Haven't had time to do that yet. But, they're lovely and go well with my antique china.

Yep, that's why I snapped it up. I was too cheap to buy one this last summer. Looks like waiting paid off.
