Frankly, most Goodwill's shouldn't be classified as a non-profit. And here's an example from my current local area: DURHAM: Goodwill husband-wife team earns nearly $800,000 | News | NewsObserver.com

I used to shop and donate there until they started raising their prices to ridiculous levels. After doing some research on their company I saw how unethical they were and refuse to even donate to them anymore. They are all about profits. Thanks for sharing your experience with them.

My very favorite perfume is one that was introduced in the 80's and discontinued about 3 years later. I have to buy them on Ebay now and, unfortunately, there are too many people out there willing to pay exoribitant amounts of money for a bottle. Luckily, I have enough for a long time.

Since I've been priced out of purchasing my now favorite fragrance of the past 7 years, I tried to go back to my old kind of fav, and it's not on any shelves, ebay is one of the few places I see it and my goodness is it ever overpriced there, I just as well stick with my present scent. I was able to outbid on a couple of purse sizes of the one I usually wear, via Israel, so these should at least hold me till I never win the lottery in maybe 6 months to a year. I'm very careful how I spritz these days. I was able to get my purse. After this, it will just have to be whatever TJ Maxx or Marshalls has in stock that has a nice enough scent or all natural.
