|Goodwill of North Georgia Store in Buckhead (Atlanta, GA)|
|Small loveseat purchased at Goodwill|
On this beautiful, sunny day, I thought I would travel to my neighborhood Goodwill of North Georgia stores for their "you cannot beat this" Senior Discount Tuesday (a whopping 25% percent off for anyone over 55). I started out at my favorite store on Roswell Road in Buckhead. I needed some new reading material and this is my best source for great paper-packs. And, of course, I am always looking for great ready-to-be-refurbished upholstered furniture. I scored on both counts today.

I have a client looking for a loveseat and ottoman for her bedroom and found this nicely sized and well constructed piece. I don't know if this will work for her but I can envision it in a number of my fabrics.
I also needed some new reading material and this particular store seems to have some high-quality readers. Without spending much time, I found six books that sounded interesting.
The store was having a fabric sale but not at the price point that I can use. However, they had a stack of "bolt-ends" that had been 75% off of their regular retail but were now marked at three bundles for $10. This got my my blood flowing!
|I could not resist these prices although most were only 1.5 to 2.0 yards. The fabrics were beautiful and a great deal!|
|Here are some of the labels - the original prices were quite high. My cost per bundle was $3.33 - not too bad!|
|Here are some of my purchases - can't wait to find the right furniture match for these!|
The pieces I bought ranged from 1.3 to 2.4 yards although I did get three bundles of the same totaling 5.5 yards and another two totaling almost 4 yards. I guess I will be looking for smallish pieces (upholstery requirement-wise) for some time to come.
