Mom, I love you but I am OBSESSED with Good Will. You know that rush you get when you find something on the clearance rack in your size that's really cute? I don't have the patience to sift through clothes on a rack that might be in my size and then try it on only to discover it looks cuter on the hanger. Instead I've become addicted to hunting down kitchenware at local Good Will stores. There are about 6-7 stores within a 45 minute radius of my apartment. It's like going garage sale hunting any day of the week, rain or shine, any season. On my recent trip I found these really cool milk glass bubble bowls. I'm totally into milk glass. I am seeing it everywhere! Usually I am on the look out for pyrex casserole dishes, anything that looks vintage or unique which explains the asian tray I picked up. I have no idea what I am going to do with it but it looked cool and it was only $3.00. This is cheap fun. I spent a whole day perusing local shops, snagged some cool stuff and only spent $10.00. That's cheaper than most of my quick trips around Target just killing time and lasted longer than an hour. That store has some sort of magical power over me. I hoped onto Google to search for other local stores and discovered shopgoodwill.com. It's a Good Will auction site similar to eBay but not as popular. That means it's way easier to win stuff. I can't tell you how many times I have lost a bidding war because I couldn't click my mouse fast enough in the last few seconds of the auctions when it sat unchanged for days. I literally killed 2 hours of my morning looking at all the cool stuff they had on this site. I then discovered my newest obsession. ENAMEL WARE! I bid on an assorted grab bag of goodies. I then proceeded to eBay to see if there was anything similar to it to compare how much it's worth. I wanted to make sure I wasn't bidding too much for it. I only bid $10.00 on the lot. I soon discovered how cool enamel ware is, it's very collectable. Unfortunately all the stuff I liked was the REALLY expensive stuff. I can't really justify spending $80.00 on a casserole dish. For now I will settle on hunting it down in thrift shops while other shoppers stare at me while I dance in the aisles with my rusty gold.

Mom & Dad I'm still alive!!!! Side note: I am terrible at spelling and grammar. There are bound to be typos all over this blog. It's like Where's Waldo. If you look hard enough you will find an error.
