I ♥ Goodwill

Sometimes patience is a really good thing, I saw this gorgeous white candle holder with little crystals hanging from it a few years ago at Target, (maybe last year, I am really bad with stuff like that.) But I loved it, NGL I coveted it, it was beautiful and my style.

But it was a lot of money for a candle holder in my opinion. So I didn't get it.

Fast forward to today, I went to Goodwill, with the hopes of finding some baskets for under my coffee table. I actually found some, too bad this grumpy older man went all snarling caveman on me and said that he was "looking" at them *insert eyeroll* so I walked away, next aisle I see some stuff on the bottom shelf, I stoop down and there it was.

My candle holder.

$4.99

All the crystals still attached, looks brand new.



Yeah. It's mine now. And I am linking to Southern Hospitality's Thrifty finds party!

  2. It was meant to be. Sometimes I hold off on making a purchase until it drops in price, then if it is still there come discount day, I know it was meant to be. Good for you. Thanks for sharing.
