Oh, G.O.

Goodwill Outlet used to be my place. My favorite store, always easily yielding perfect treasures. Then, as if out of nowhere, everyone started going there. And they all are in search of the same things as me.

This has been making me kind of disappointed lately, especially since I've gotten emails from people who heard about it from me! I don't want to be that kind of person that has a 'secret' thrift shop that I never share with anyone, though.

Anyway, all this to say that thrifting karma (or someone with really similar taste) caught up to me there on Saturday!

Perfect Leather Backpack Purse; Vintage Lacoste Sweater; Leather Clogs; All: Goodwill Outlet
The best thing about all these treasures is that none of them were where they should've been! They were all right together in one of the misc bins, just waiting for me to find them :)

So, thanks person who left them, because the clogs I can actually walk in, and the sweater fits perfectly too, and the purse is just what I've been looking for! :)



  1. Ah, that's such a bummer...though bound to happen at some point. Luckily you have a couple of thrift haunts that you frequent, right? And that's another just means that you need to visit more frequently!

    And I love it when that happens!!! To be fair, I'm sure I've left my share of thrifted goods that I've reconsidered in a pile waiting for someone to happen upon them. Oh, and those clogs? I want. I thrifted a pair yesterday...but they're a tad small and ridiculous to walk in.

  2. Yeah, the worst thing about Goodwill Outlet now is that it used to be pretty much empty, and now it's crazy, with people physically fighting for things! And also it's about a 25 minutes drive from my apartment and is open the same hours as my work so I can only go there once a week. I totally wish I could go more, though! :)

    I was so excited though about finding some of the things I'd been looking for, waiting neatly for me :) It gives me some renewed hope in Goodwill Outlet! Thanks for the comment, Myriam :)

  3. Those clogs are amazing! And I haven't seen anything Lacoste in so long!! Glad you were able to find some treasure even with the swarm. :)


I love your comments! You all are the best!
