Nate Berkus at my Goodwill!!

I hadn't been thrifting in a long time and needed a fix,
 I popped in Goodwill for a quick cruise around the store last Saturday.

Nate is that you?? I wasn't sure, you know when you see someone
out of their usual surroundings and you question yourself for a minute...
had it been Target I wouldn't have thought twice!



Nate Berkus Round Lacquer Stud Tray, $30  @ Target here
Mine for $11, brand new with the Target tags still on.


I found a couple other treasures I couldn't pass up. To fuel my lamp addiction,
 this tall base for  $6.99, I may not keep it here on the kitchen counter, just trying it out
with a black shade. I think something light and cheery for spring would work.


And these frames for $6.99 each, they need spiffed up a bit, but I loved the nice depth.
Warm woods with a great texture paired with neutrals are a favorite, they may not come out
until fall...we'll see.


I left a happy thrifter!
How about you, found any treasures lately?

I'm putting the finishing touches on the bathroom, the One Room Challenge
final reveal is Wednesday, 19 bloggers, 19 reveals ~ inspiration overload!!
 I can't wait!

Target donates their clearance items to the Goodwill out here. I have not been there in so long but I used to buy all my daughter's clothes there! She is so tall now, at nine years old, that she fits on women's clothes! I have to make clothes for her now if I want her to look like a little girl!
That lamp is beautiful!

Great finds you lucky girl!

Kerry@homecrushblog.com said...

Fun finds! I was at A Goodwill yesterday where they had a bunch of Target clearance items as well. Never knew they did that!

Shirley@Housepitality Designs said...

Great finds Pam.....as I read, i thought that you were going to tell us that you actually ran into Nate at Goodwill...but that find is a second best...:)
I love, love the lamp!....Glad you had a great GW day...I never seem to find much at mine.

Andrea said...

Great finds. Looks like you were in the right place at the right time. Love that tray and the lamp is awesome.

Cathy Wall said...

Some great finds Pam, especially that stunner of a lamp! I have had some great luck lately as well, timing is everything!

Holly said...

That lamp is a great find. I haven't been thrifting in so long. I've been practicing self control until we find a house. There have been a few pieces of furniture here and there but I'm waiting - patiently :)

Hi Pam, you find the best stuff! Makes sense that Target would need a place to donate items. I actually love the lamp on the kitchen counter and the black shade is perfect for it! Did you know that separating the banana bunch into individual bananas makes them stay fresh longer? Have a great day! We are in for more crappy weather today here but we will be on a beach in 4 days! Yay!

Nancy said...

wow, you seem to hit it when your thrift, which is a reminder for me to go more often! It is so random...can't believe those Nate finds..lucky you. Good luck Pam with the reveal. Love your new lamp.

awesome finds!!! i totally thought you bumped into nate at your goodwill.... i suppose this is good, too!

Dana Frieling said...

Loving the curves of your lamp. Does Mr. Simple roll his eyes when you bring a new one home? ;)

Kelly @ A Swell Place to Dwell said...

SCORE! Some awesome finds. Love that lamp...and I am sure Nate would be proud!

Lori said...

You are a lucky one (w/ a great eye). I love the lamp base.

Diana @ Your Day Simplified said...

Wow, your eye is spot on. I don't think I would have recognized a Nate tray and I love the sexy lamp base. I'd love it for my bedroom.

Jennifer @ Dimples and Tangles said...

Well I should think you were happy after those scores! Awesome frames and the lamp is fantastic! Love the tray, too. My sister found the one NB item I wanted the most from Target at a thrift store last month...haven't blogged about it yet! Can't wait to see the bathroom!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Love those frames, Pam! I always look through the frames, even when I don't need any at the moment. Great lamp, too. My GW doesn't seem to have much in the way of lamps. Back on Long Island, now that GW had lamps! I try to hit my GW twice a month. It seems that if I go any sooner than that I'm just seeing the same stuff from the last visit.

Patty Day @Pattys Epiphanies said...

You're GOOD!!!
Your finds are treasures!

Kim said...

Aw, what a lucky day!! I try to pop in on occasion, have NEVER been so lucky!!xo

Lisa @ Shine Your Light said...

Wow - nice find with that tray!! Can't wait for tomorrow!!

Taylor Greenwalt said...

Pam...you are a amazing....cant believe you found that lamp at the Goodwill....I'm going to have to try my GW....

Shannon Fox said...

Score! What a find. You have to love new with tags name brands. Sweet!!

Linda {Calling it Home} said...

Haha, that's great. I have never heard of Target donating like this. I wonder if they do that in NJ?

Julia Konya said...

Geesh! I can't stand seeing other people finding this amazing stuff at thrift stores anymore. LOL Just kidding, congrats on your great finds...ours have been terrible.
But I have seen Target items at our Goodwill already as well.

lizziedee said...

Which Goodwill do you go to? I never see such great finds at the Goodwill on Hampden/I-25...

An Eye for Detail said...

I'm doing a wall of old family pictures: having them scanned and making prints, so I'm in the market for interesting frames. So now, of course, I will have to hit the thrift stores!

pam {simple details} said...

Lizziedee - I go to a few different locations, I found these items at 1450 S. Wadsworth in Lakewood, I also like the Glendale store, and Littleton @ Simms and Bellview - have fun!

I am such a picker, and just opened an antique booth with a friend in NY because we love thrifting and finding treasures!! Nothing better than walking out with a great find!
Best.
