I buy from and donate to Goodwill all the time. I am perform with several theatre companies in the Greater Louisville area and have found Goodwill to be a great resource for costumes and jewelry for the stage. In March I was in a production playing an 80 year old woman and found the perfect dress, shoes and hat for the character. My son told me I gave so many things to Goodwill that I might as well just take the bags from the department store directly to Goodwill because they'd end up there eventually anyway. This Christmas I found the perfect gift for my 14 year old granddaughter at my Goodwill store in Jeffersonville, IN. I saw a silver jewelry box that was all tarnished and black. Inside was perfect, like new. In addition, there was a music box inside which worked perfectly. It was $2.00. I took it home and polished it with silver polish and it was absolutely beautiful with a soft lusterous patina. She loved it. Two years ago I found a pale yellow London Fog Raincoat that looked new. It fit me perfectly so I bought it for $10. This year I did some Christmas shopping there and everyone was so nice and helpful. I love Goodwill.
