Last week I saw a post on the GoodwillDE Facebook page that featured items from their Kirkwood Highway store, I’ve never been to that location and wanted to check it out. So on Friday I rode with Tayair to Newark where he attended a picnic sponsored by The Community Connectors and then I drove to Goodwill (saving gas) to shop. Malik returns to school on the 28th and I found him some new shirts and polos for $5.00 and $6.00 each.
On this trip I was only looking for fall and winter items because Goodwill is now selling their summer items at 50% every Tuesday.
100% Wool Argyle Sweater – $5.00
Short Sleeve Polo Shirts – $3.75 each
Perfect for Breast Cancer Awareness Day at school
Sweater Vest which he likes to show off his muscular arms!! – $1.88
These 2 skirts made great additions to my fall wardrobe and I will wear them with tights and boots when the weather cools. – $6.00 each
This black mock neck sweater was a bit pricey at $8.00, but I liked the silver buckles across the front, I washed it in a lingerie bag on the hand wash cycle it came out perfectly.
These animal print pants was a last minute decision and I’m not sure if I will wear them, but if I do, it will be with a long sweater and boots -$3.75
Finally this sleeveless top is a transitional piece that I will wear now and then under a blazer in the fall and winter – $3.75
Last spring while shopping at Goodwill in Exton, PA, I saw this dress and immediately fell in love with the pattern. Sunday night while watching the 10:00 news I noticed reporter Luann Cahn had the same patterned dress, but I bet she didn’t get it from Goodwill for $5.00! This is the first time wearing it this summer and once again thanks to Saturday’s picnic, it fits like a glove!

Every time I see red and white gingham my mind takes me back to the family picnics we had as a child. Whether it was at Bear Mountain, NY or Silver Lake, DE spreading that red and white tablecloth across a dirty wooden table meant a day filled with FOOD, FUN, and FAMILY!
One year a bunch of us kids got lost in Bear Mountain and we were scared to death that a real bear was going to eat us (child’s imagination running wild). We roamed around the woods for what seemed like hours, scared and arguing over which way was the right one back. Eventually we found our way and none of the adults seemed to miss us so we didn’t get into trouble and life was good again. Things got even better when we saw that red and white gingham tablecloth covered with FOOD – hot dogs, hamburgers, chicken, corn on the cob, potato salad, chips, Kool-Aid, cookies and watermelon! We ate until we got sick and made a pact to never venture into the woods ever again – aaah more wonderful childhood memories!
