More Browsing With the French Sisters

Hello Again From The French Hen's Nest,

  I noticed a new Goodwill on the way home from my son's house the other night, and decided that I would check it out today.  It's huge, but not as much in housewares as the other store that I usually feature.  However, it did have tons of art, and some good books.  Anyway, I took a few photos, and I'm sharing them with you now.  Hope you enjoy browsing.

Great for the sun porch

Pretty Fall platter

This bed is so pretty for $60, queen size too

 Another pretty bed

These were 18x18 inches, of wood, really like the teal for $2.50

Nice big basket

More baskets

Christmas wreath for $9

I think this carved wooden bowl is from South America. Where it is cracked it  has been repaired with metal like staples.  Must be very old, really quaint.

These look like ceramic, but are wood for $2.50!
Aren't they beautifully painted?

Love this transfer-ware plate.

My sister would love this milk glass hen.

Cuisinart coffee maker for $8.98!

Great color on this pretty clock

A long wall of art...

...and books

Remember these French portraits?

Original oil painting for $20

So pretty

Very modern

Something for every taste.

Well I hope you enjoyed sharing my latest browsing trip.  I am still between homes and living with my daughter so I had to exercise restraint and took nothing home with me. It's not so hard when I think of my overflowing storage unit!

Till nest time,

  1. Oh I would have been so happy because I collect brown transfer-ware. I would have also purchased the brown scroll pieces--hmmm maybe some paint!

    1. Hi Ann, wasn't that plate pretty, the price was a little higher that usual at $7.97, most of the time they are only about $3.00. I loved the scroll pieces too, and you're right, they do need a little paint. Hope that you have a great week. Thank you so much for stopping by.

  2. Thanks for allowing me to tag along on your shopping trip. GW is a nice blue store.

    Thanks for playing Blue Monday, and for sharing your blue.

    Please come back and comment on my post.

  3. Very fun. Shopping in my slippers. LOL. I enjoyed the tour. Those were some amazing things. I love the table and chairs. I need for my new patio! Come by and see my blue things today.
    Have a great week. It was nice to meet you.

    1. Hi Sherry, I just visited you and left a comment, but didn't see it. Love you dream dining room. Thank you so much for the visit, very nice to meet you as well.

  4. Thanks for a very creative browsing trip with your lovely photos ~ carol ^_^

  5. Holy Smokes! WHERE is this Goodwill store? I thought the ones by us were good, but this one had some amazing things. Go back when you are moved into your own place, that's all I can say.
    Thanks for sharing.... Cass

    1. Hi Cass, I live in Northern Va, just outside of DC. There were a few things I liked, but have to wait. Thank you so much for the visit. Hope you have a great day.

  6. Wow - window shopping at it's best! I would have bought loads, especially the wooden wall hangings - love them!
    Happy Blue Monday

    1. You know, I put them in my cart and carried them around for a while, really liked the teal color. Thank you so much for the visit.

  7. WoW, I did enjoy browsing, I saw a few items that I would have brought home with me. Love Goodwill Stores!

    1. Hi Sylvia, so glad you enjoyed the trip, I love Goodwill stores as well, and thank you so much for the visit.


  8. Some great finds, I love the beds, those are fantastic prices, now if I could only ship those for free!

    1. Hi Noel, I really liked the queen sized bed, that frame was so pretty, it looked new. Thank you so much for the visit. Have a great day.

  9. WOW - lots of goodies...The "hen" caught my eye, I have 6 and use them constantly for soups (especially chicken noodle), salads (like chicken salad) and egg dishes! My guests love it when I serve the hens and then lift off the lids to show the food inside!!

  10. Hi Patti, what a great idea, I would have never thought of that. My grandmother had one like it when I was little, she always kept it on her dresser. Thank you so much for the visit.

  11. Looks like a fabulous goodwill. Thanks so much for linking to Inspire Me. Hugs, Marty

  12. I LOVE your post. You should come show off your creativity starting at 8PM CST at Craft Frenzy Friday! http://obsessiveandcreative.blogspot.com/2013/09/craft-frenzy-friday-6.html It won't be a party without you!

  13. Hi Rhonda, Thank you so much for the invitation. See you later.

  14. Wow you struck gold at your Goodwill. Awesomeness!!

  15. Hi Jeannie,
    Thank you for taking me along. I saw some things I would love to bring home with me. That white queen bed for starters, the transferware platter, etc. My son would love those wooden ducks! Thanks for sharing at my HOME and leaving your very sweet comment. Blessings, Sandi

  16. I definitely would have gone home with the scrolled squares but the plates were priced too high for a thrift store. I chafe at paying more than a dollar for a single plate. I did like the original art for $20 though. That might have come home as well.

  17. OMG as we use to say !!!!!! wish I had been with you I see several items that would be in my cart to take home

  18. Wow, what a great store!! You are one of the features today at the Anything Blue Friday party at The Dedicated House. Pop on over and grab a feature button for your blog. Here is the link to this week's party. http://thededicatedhouse.blogspot.com/2013/10/anything-blue-friday-week-28.html Hope to see you again at the little blue soiree. Toodles, Kathryn @TheDedicatedHouse
