Half-Off Day at The Goodwill Clearance Center!

Happy Christmas Eve Eve, Everybody!  :)  Today’s post is dedicated to one of my favorite places to score uber-cheap refashionables…The Goodwill Clearance Center!

Several of you have asked me for more details about this slightly scary place of mystery and wonder.  So, I’m going to take you along!  :)

Goodwill stores are easy to find.  You probably have one in your town.  Buuuuut…Goodwill Clearance Centers aren’t quite as common.  This is the best list I could find of locations.  So, I’m a lucky gal to have one of these dubious treasure troves so very close to me.

In we go!!!

Here’s what it looks like on the inside!

BEHOLD!!!

BEHOLD!!!

Note the complete and utter lack of racks or any sort of organizational system of any kind.  This place isn’t for the faint of heart, friends.

Come in prepared to dig!

Okaaaaay…so this is a slight exaggeration. ;)

Buuuuut…everything is $1 a pound!  EXCEPT on Sundays, when everything is FIFTY CENTS A POUND!!!!!  (Squeeee!)

I recommend wearing gloves.  I’m not kidding.

No Glove, No Love!  :)

You think I’m going too far with the glove thing, don’t you?

OH MY GAWD!!!!!! EEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!

Why yes…that’s a syringe folks.  A flippin’ SYRINGE!!!!!  You never know what you’re going to find in these bins!

Let’s just try to forget about that for now, okay?

I dug in…looking for items that weren’t too stained, weird-smelling, or gross to use.

You'll dye nicely!  :)

Recognize this?

The search continues!

The search continues!

These clearance centers aren’t just for clothing either.  They are also purveyors of fine reading materials!

This should make for some pleasant holiday reading!

After an hour or so of intense rummaging, I had a big bag ‘o fun stuff!

Huzzah!!!

Huzzah!!!

And what was the price of all this, you ask?

BAM!!!

BAM!!!

Happy Thrifting!  :)
