Decorating an apartment can be expensive! Thankfully, Goodwill Easterseals has low cost, like – new furniture and décor available for purchase at all of their stores! That’s right, Goodwill Easterseals has more than just clothes. I went back to my local store to prove how easy and inexpensive room decoration can be!
I was shocked by how large the selection of home décor was! I was immediately drawn to a beautiful living room side -table. It looked as if it had plenty of room for storage and was in good condition. The side table cost only $7.48 and would be a great addition to any home!
As I walked through the store, I discovered Goodwill Easterseals’ large collection of vases! They have all shapes and sizes. You can find any style of vase you need to dress up a bedroom or living room with flowers or the decorative item of your choosing! It can be fun to get creative and fill vases with glass balls or small trinkets! At the low price of $1.91 you can buy a vase for every room!
Another pro tip is to look at Goodwill Easterseals’ collection of lamps! This is also a large section of the store similar to the vases. I was pleased to find many modern black lamps as well as two fun lamps that would add creativity to any space! You can purchase all of these for only $8.98 and make a dark apartment look bright and fun!
Finally, I recommend checking out their selection of mirrors! If you want to place a large accent piece on a blank wall a mirror could add class and character to the room! I found a beautiful gold mirror for only $19.91 and a nice white mirror with picture frame above it for only $9.99! Digging through the mirrors is worth it because you never know what hidden gem you will find! Thank you to everyone who supports Goodwill Easterseals though donating, shopping or volunteering at one of our many programs!
