What better way to kick off the Christmas shopping season than going into a thrift shop? Well, I’m sure most people can think of a laundry list of places they would prefer to be but for me Goodwill it is!
I am no stranger to thrift shops in Virginia but I haven’t been to one since I was around 12-years-old. Lets just say that the Goodwill store I chose welcomed me in with open arms.
I left this store with a bag full of great items.
I really love the retro look of this jacket. $4.99
J. Crew wedges $10.00
Banana Republic. $4.00
Xhiliration (never heard of them). $4.00
I purchased this oversized Mouse because I thought it would help me play Bejeweled better. It has the opposite effect.
Like most Goodwill stores, this Goodwill is very well organized and clean. Their prices are very reasonable. Their strong point is their home decor items. They have such a lovely assortment of picture frames, plate sets, desks, chests, and many more. They are weak in the toy department as they don’t have one at all. I asked the associate about this and she said that they usually receive toys around Christmas time. That’s odd because every Goodwill I go to has a toy section. I guess they choose not to have one unless the public demand is at its most high. I can’t blame them. Toys suck.
