oh, the wonders of second-hand thrift stores
Does this mean Macklemore is a plugger? Or just a flash(light) in the pan?
For her daughter? C’mon, tell the truth.
I was surprised to hear last week’s wealthy Jeopardy contestant bragging about his profits from reselling Goodwill purchases. Those items are all donated for the needy.
“I’m gonna pop some tags…”
Just a note, no matter how badly an item of clothing is stained or torn, it can either be included in a bail of old clothes sent to poorer nations or sold to make paper. If in doubt whether to put something in the trash or the Good Will can, err in the direction of trying to reuse it. It they can’t use it, they can throw it out. I haven’t bought new clothes in years, I figure I rent them from Good Will or the Salvation Army and return them when I can no longer use them.
Some of my best and favorite clothes(and most complimented about) have come from Goodwill. My best was a pair of new leather pants for $7!
I didn’t think there was anyplace else to shop.
Why did the Chicken cross the road?
To do more shopping.
Now, I can’t, and won’t attempt, to speak for ALL-Goodwill outlets with the following. But, the ones in my-general area get a majority of their re-sells from the return/reject-shipments from Target®-stores. Most of the private-donations—-in particular, of clothing—-are, indeed sent to the baler for re-purposing, with very-little to absolutely no-vetting process. (Likely due to space-restrictions/storage.) Ironically, I’ve heard many complain about the price for Goodwills’ “second-hand” being higher than even at the original Target®-stores, themselves? Sorry, but the “good-will” of the original-Goodwill seems to be a ghost of what it was intended to be, when it was created—-at least, in some-areas of the country. Then again, one is not forced to buy there—-that’s why it’s called, “shopping for the best-deal, for your own-purpose/enjoyment.” Far be it for me to dissuade anyone from shopping where they so desire!
Also known as the “G W Boutique”.
