What to Look for on National Thrift Shop Day


August 17th is National Thrift Shop Day. Head to Goodwill to shop for unique finds and amazing deals. You never know what you’ll find at Goodwill! 

The racks at Goodwill have seen tons of vintage clothing, designer accessories, and quality furniture. Many shoppers love to buy discounted items at our stores and put their own personal touch on them. Whether you’re in the mood to up-cycle, re-use, or find thrifty fashion, a Goodwill run has endless possibilities for unexpected finds. Here’s what to look for on #NationalThriftShopDay.

Pottery & Artwork
If you find a piece of artwork with a signature or an attached certificate, it may be worth something. You’ll need to investigate further to know for sure, but don’t skip the artwork section!

Tables & Chairs
A sturdy table is easy to refinish. Look for quality wood that still has a lot of life left. Then you can sand and paint for a table that looks brand new. Mixing and matching chairs is totally acceptable and encouraged.

Designer Handbags
Brand names like Dooney & Burke and Kate Spade have graced our stores with their presence. Don’t judge a book by its cover—check the label.

Collectible Items
Signed baseballs, vinyl records, and vintage children’s toys have all been found at Goodwill. You just have to be willing to hunt.

Clothing
Organized by color, it’s easy to search for clothing you love at Goodwill. Refresh your wardrobe with some new closet staples at an affordable price.

Shop & Give Back at Goodwill
National Thrift Shop Day is a great opportunity to remind the community of the impact of shopping at Goodwill. When you shop with us, you support our mission of ending poverty through the power of work. Through our mission, we provide job seekers and our employees with no-cost tools and resources to achieve meaningful employment and life-sustaining wages. It’s all thanks to our generous shoppers and donors.
