Come thrift store shopping with me at our local Goodwill - are there good deals to be found? It's been quite awhile since I checked out a thrift shop, so this trip was long overdue. I was surprised by how many new-in-package items there were at the Tampa Bay area location I went to. However, Goodwill seems to be pretty knowledgeable on which brands/items are more valuable and they are priced accordingly. I ended up finding quite a few things I could make use of, including some textiles I plan to use for practicing stitch outs on the embroidery machine.
UPDATE: When I opened up the packages of "new" towels I was surprised to find out ALL three of the red ones had obvious flaws. There were holes/rips that were mended with a sewing machine using red thread. While yes, the towels are technically usable, they are not going to work as gifts. Kind of bummed, because I wanted to try Christmas embroidery designs on the red towels.
Do you thrift? Let me know about your best haul or amazing find!
