Goodwill Outlet Stores

I pretty much love LOVE the Goodwill Outlet Stores. I am told not all areas have them. So if your area does not have one, or you have never been to one, here is a little bit about them. They are not like a regular Goodwill. You walk in and there are these huge blue bins filled with items. They change the bins out every two hours to bring in all different things. It is truly a treasure hunt. You pay by the pound instead of per item. I usually FILL my cart to overflowing for $32. Anything over 50 pounds is .59 cents a pound.
Tonight my sister came up for a visit. She has never been to an outlet, so of course I had to talk her into going. We were there for 2 and a half hours. She wants to drive back up here and go again tomorrow! (She lives 45 minutes away!!)
I hope to of course get some pictures of all of my fabulous finds for everyone to see in the morning. I bought 2 books of vintage sheet music, several floral arrangements in different vases & pots, a vintage glass chandelier, a fantastic floral duvet, dozens & dozens of vintage pink Christmas ornaments, vintage silver plate silverware, a vintage silver hand mirror & matching brush, a dress for me, the cutest little black floral hat, some antique drawer pulls, Haviland Limoges dinner plates, some hanging glass candle holders, a beautiful blue glass jar, an Eiffel Tower glass bottle, a pair of Pottery Barn down filled pillows, a mirrored vase, and several other dozen things that I can not quite remember at the moment. I spent only my usual...$32!
I love LOVE the Goodwill Outlet.....and will most likely be going again tomorrow with my sister!


  1. this sounds like a great place to go i'm gonna go online to see if i have one in my area we have goodwill but i have never heard about the outlet

  2. It appears you won the goodwill lottery. We have a goodwill right up the street , but I have never been inside the store. We usually drop off clothes in the back on the loading docks. I will be making a trip inside the store tomorrow. Your blog is lovely and I have enjoyed my visit. Please stop by my blog for a visit and perhaps follow if you would like.

  3. Thanks for your comment. I have a goodwill near me. So far I haven't had any luck there. Hopefully I will soon.

  4. Sounds like fun! I didn't know Goodwill had "outlets". I'm going to have to check this out.

  5. I am lucky enough to have quite a few goodwill's with in a 20 mile radius, but an OUTLET?? We don't have any of those. Now I will have to google to see if we have any in CT. Next time you'll have to take pictures of this wonderland!

    Take care,

  6. Oooo, it never occurred to me to take pictures!! I have 3 within a 30 mile radius so I forget that some other states do not have them and others only have 1 in the entire state!Next time I go I promise to take pics to share for those of you who don't have one near by.


I ♥ your comments. Thank you for reading visiting!
