I am almost afraid to write about this.
It's that good of a secret.
Let me tell you what I got at this store recently:
A pair of Nike capri running pants, $3.99
A pair of pink North Face sweat pants, $3.59
An Ann Taylor skirt, $3.59
An Express work-appropriate shirt, $.99
A Kelty DOUBLE jogging stroller, $24.99.
This was at Goodwill, people!
The Goodwill in way west Omaha (so far west, you might as well be in Gretna really) has really nice stuff.
I don't go there very often, but when I do I always wind up with an armful of clothes to try on. And I always spend at least an hour there, despite my intentions beforehand to just "stop in real quick."
Not only do they have a lot of clothes, they have a lot of name-brand clothes. Many of the pieces still have a lot of wear in them, too. I credit the way-richer-than-I'll-ever-be west Omahans for this thrift store gold mine. Thank you, doctors, lawyers and Internet technologists of suburbia! Now, I have a closetful of secondhand name-brand clothes and a stroller too big to fit in my garage.
Seriously, though, this is good stuff that should not have been discarded yet. And I'm more than happy to carry its circle of life on -- and save money while doing it.
