Twenty-four hours before the First San Diego Thrifting Bus Tour! Excited beyond words. Full day of shopping, some awesome ladies, chauffeured ride, drinks and not putting my bank account in a negative. Yes, I will take it.
Another store that the bus will be stopping is Goodwill. I have yet to enter a Goodwill and leave empty handed. I love that their stores are color coded, always clean, big aisles, and dressing rooms. Prime example of Goodwill gone RIGHT! This entire outfit is thrifted from various Goodwill stores in San Diego, head to toe.
Thrifting Diva: Why are the Goodwill thrift stores different than consignment stores?
Goodwill: Goodwill is one of the world’s largest employers of people with disabilities. When you shop with Goodwill Industries of San Diego County you are helping to create jobs within the local San Diego area community. We believe in investing in individual abilities and firmly believe that employment can lead to fuller, and more fulfilling life.
Thrifting Diva: What are the price points that can be found in the Goodwill stores?
Goodwill: We have items ranging as low as ninety-nine cents & up! We offer a 10% discount to military, senors (55+) and students every day.
Thrifting Diva: Why should people consider recycling their clothes?
Goodwill: Statistics show that on average, a person throws out 70 pounds of clothing a year. In San Diego, that means 1.82 billion pounds of trash every year! Simply donating to Goodwill diverted over 9.7 million pounds of unsellable merchandise from the local landfill in 2013. We are a company that is committed to green and our recycling efforts go beyond just clothing to include, metals, shoes, paper and plastics!
Thrifting Diva: Can we find true vintage clothing at Goodwill?
Goodwill: Yes, there are hidden gems throughout our stores! You never know what you will find on a daily basis. Quick tip! Check the boutique sections located in the front of most stores or… for those online, check out shopgoodwill.com/sandiego for even more great deals and steals.
Thrifting Diva: Are there any major sales that customers should be on the look out for at Goodwill in San Diego?
Goodwill: Every day is considered a sale. We offer 10% off for seniors, students and military but our prices and quality of goods is the real deal! We want you to have the best product at the best price, and best of all, your purchases help change lives by creating jobs!
