I love thrift stores. That is no secret around here. I usually find awesome stuff for super cheap there... like this amazing khaki Kensie coat that was hanging out at Goodwill last Thursday:
I have loved shopping at Goodwill stores for as long as I can remember. As a frequent buyer and donor, I was curious to get a glimpse at the life of the things I buy there before I buy them. Last Thursday, Janelle, the very cool online marketing coordinator of Goodwill Industries of Central Texas, invited me to take a peak in the back of the Goodwill store on Lamar:
While walking around in the donation center and sorting area of Goodwill, I could not believe the volume of things they take in and sell each and every day! And this is just one of their 31 central Texas locations. I was also quite impressed to learn more about the mission of Goodwill. Who knew that shopping could feel so good?
Big ups to Janelle for allowing me to get a behind the scenes look at Goodwill and for giving me this mint condition Kensie jacket to give away to one of my Facebook friends.
