What a find! An authentic Julio-Claudian-era bust was found in a Goodwill store by a local, Austin antiques dealer who immediately contacted the right people to have the piece provenanced (i.e., finding the history of an object’s ownership). A lucky few who joined us for the annual Archaeology Playdate on Sunday were able to listen as our art historians and Romanists Dr. John Clarke and Dr. Penelope Davies alongside Antiquities Action founder Dr. Stephennie Mulder examined the piece in real time, commenting on its form and style and suggesting some initial rough dates. Spoiler: Romanists were suggesting around the era of Pompey (106 BC-48 BC). .

Clutter in your space clutters your mind. I am the opposite of a hoarder, I regularly clean out, declutter, purge and take donations to Goodwill or the rescue mission. 👗
I love to #declutter and it’s nice to know our things go to someone who needs them. It also helps those organizations when you shop at their stores. 🛒
Did you happen to catch my Insta story a couple weeks ago when my son and I popped into the Goodwill store to see if you can find clothes in there? Well, this cute little tie dye top proves you can! 5 bucks! 😎
Also snagged a like-new cozy sweater duster for the cooler months. ❄️
And my son? He found some cool electronics.
btw skinny jeans are Kenzie 👖#socomfortable got ‘me at #marshalls
I found this amazing Calvin Klein jacket today for under $6. The 1st thrift store find that I might actually be able to get my Hubby onboard with wearing. It’s truly a handsome jacket. Anyone know how to find Calvin Klein stock photos/prices?
This sale is special because it’s the first time I’ve ever had a follow-up sale from a market!!! It’s on its way home to Ohio and purely coincidental, to a friend of a friend!!! This one was a #goodwillfind that I deconstructed and brought back to live with some class.
[SWIPE FOR VIDEO] WOW! Talk about an in-store experience! 😍🎵 Even on an out of tune piano, our talented Rt. 85 Goodwill employee Steffen brought the store to silence with a beautiful @johnlegend cover this afternoon 🎹 Steffen is classically trained and loves to play all kinds of genres - stop by to listen for yourself! Happy Friday, friends 🎉
When I see things, I always see them differently. I really love this floral print and the way the material felt.
▪️ I had bought this dress at a local goodwill months ago and had a different vision for it rather than a skirt. I really wanted to turn it into overalls, but I felt like it would turn into a romper and I have no desire for a romper. .
▪️I finally made the decision to take it from a dress and turn it into a skirt. I love how it flows and the beautiful print. It’s a great piece to add to my wardrobe.
▪️Do you ever see things differently? If you do what are they? Do you change them or leave it the same?
