Goodwill Shopping on Senior Citizen Tuesday

Interesting accent pot at Goodwill of North Georgia - new store on Holcomb Bridge
I have often written about my visits to the area Goodwill Industries stores - Goodwill of North Georgia has impeccable standards and excellent employees. AND, on top of all that, they give me a 25% discount (their senior citizen discount for everyone 55 and older) on Tuesdays - very generous. I have not been regular on these visits lately so decided to stop at just two shops yesterday - those closest to my home. I  ran into a neighbor and caught up with our busy summer activities and learned her daughter is pregnant (it will be grandchild number three - up to this point we have been neck and neck with two granddaughters each). But I digress - although not that much. I find the stores to be busy with lots of shoppers and not infrequently recognize some of those. It's a fun place to shop!

Here are some of the items I saw and briefly contemplated!

Nice enough chair - Decorating Den label - did not have coil springs in foundation. Probably would have bought if there had been a pair - nice styling. Cost was $29.97 before discount.
10 yard roll of fabric in a nice pattern. I was tempted but wasn't sure about popularity of color combo although if this works for someone, it would be great on a chair or set of smaller chairs or used in a shower curtain or bed duvet cover. Cost was $4.97 before discount. 
Loved this color combination.
Three sets of dining tables (one with chairs) at the Peachtree Parkway store - the round table which looked well made and in very good condition was $49.97 before discount. 

I am somewhat over the top in terms of current inventory which has challenged my storage requirements so am trying not to overbuy. I could not, however, resist the Highland House (Hickory, NC) club chair and picked it up to be redone.

I highly recommend these stores!
My purchase!
