Fantastic Finds | Candle Holders, Lamp, Vintage Tray

As everyone knows, shopping thrift stores is always a hit or miss.
This is all new to me but so much fun since I love finding great deals.  

Allison from House of Hepworth's has a great article on everything she knows about Goodwill.
It's full of tips & info.  Did you know that some Goodwill stores buy salvage from Target?!

After reading that I searched for Goodwill Stores near me and went shopping. 
Here's what I found...

2 Matching Wooden Candle Stick Holders, $1.99 ea

A Vintage Mirrored Tray, $1.99

A Brand New Homes & Garden Lamp, $8.99

I can't decide whether to paint the candle holders white or spray paint them in a silver satin. Hmmmm

Walk in Support of Suicide Prevention

Luis M. Castillo, Jr.
April 8, 1992 - October 13, 2011

Last October, during that dark and overwhelming time, news of my brother's passing spread like wildfire. It was unexpected, but most importantly heartwarming, to see so many faces that I hadn't seen in years.  Now, nearly a year later, I hope to get the same support at the Hudson River Walk Event.

Out of the Darkness Community Walk for the American Foundation of Suicide Prevention

The Out of the Darkness Community Walks are 3-5 mile walks taking place in over 250 communities across the country this year, with the proceeds benefiting the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP). By walking in the Out of the Darkness Community Walks, you will be walking with thousands of other walkers nationwide to raise money for AFSP's vital research and education programs to prevent suicide and save lives, increase national awareness about depression and suicide, and provide support for survivors of suicide loss. In deciding to walk you are taking us a step closer to making suicide prevention a national priority.

Whether you can attend or not, please consider making a tax-exempt donation to the The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. Even $5 can make a difference! To make a donation, click the Support Me button on my fundraising page.
