Shopped for a 1980's vintage formal wear for my daughter's costume in a musical...$5 for what eBay would sell for $20 plus shipping. I'm psyched over that!

I have found some nice things in the GoodWill here in Portland. Once got a thick coat for $6, very good condition. Wore it for years until it was too embarrassing to be seen in, then took it back to GoodWill!! Found some nice rayon dresses for dancing(hard to find now) there in very good condition recently.

I'm glad we don't have any Goodwill, Value Village, or Salvation Army stores here.

When we lived near one, my wife was always buying me shirts there.
No matter how they were washed or treated, they always had someone else's odor on them.

I called them "Stink Shirts" and used them for wiping rags.

I found a great Calvin Klein shirt at GoodWill, like new, no smell at all. Still have it!

Picked up a bunch of compact discs at the salvation Army thrift store a few days ago. Whew, a great find! 13 of them for $2 each, three of them were by Alison Kraus and Union Station, and other bluegrass and folk artists. It pays to stop in there!
