I'm not up on today's hip lingo, but that feels a little "meta" to me.

A few years ago I grabbed 4-5 BB tweeds for $1.99/ea. Lately I might take a chance on 1-2 things a month because it's all crap. That plus every GW is a frickin madhouse that day.

 

Goodwill's operate regionally, not nationally.  Here, it's Goodwill of North Georgia, and most (if not all) of them adhere to the same pricing structure, same colors on sale during a given week, etc.  We do not have a $1.99 day, but we do have the 50% off color of the week like everyone else.  I think we have 5 colors, maybe 6...so every 5 (or 6) weeks a new color goes on sale at 50% off.  Ties are $2.92, sport coats are $6.96, shirts are $5.75, shoes and pants are $5.95, jeans are $7.47, ball caps are $1.91...I forget how much suits are because they usually end up being separated and I rarely bother trying to reunite unless it's something potentially awesome.

Some, but not most, of the stores also have special price items.  Depending on the store, they price things up...for example, at the Buckhead store they price up all Lucky Brand, True Religion jeans etc, as well as stuff they deem "special" (which may or may not be), but at other more rural stores they might price up PRL and Hilfiger because that's the nicest stuff they get.  Some have caught on to other labels, but not for the most part.  So the Atlanta area has it pretty good insofar as GW pricing goes at the moment, compared to other areas I have shopped.

 

Pop over the state line into southern Tennessee, and the pricing structure is totally different.  I shopped at GW in Chattanooga and the nastiest, most sand-papery, old suits were $24.99 and up.

 

The Goodwill Boutiques are another animal entirely.  Only shopped the one in Las Vegas and it was a farking joke - old label, worn collar, pit stained Zenga shirts for $49...and so on.

 

The Bins - may or may not be one near you.  Every thrifter has to visit at least once in their life, to see the dregs. 

 

shopgoodwill - you may have a local inspection / pickup location for all of your participating regional stores (i.e.: when I lived in Portland, all of the Willamette stores had their auction items in the same place where you could inspect, pick up / return if needed).

 

Goodwill Onyx - if you have an AmEx Black card, you can access the site.  I've bought several Kiton cashmere blazers there for $60 - $80, cashmere suits for around $125, etc.  30 day returns and it's all Kiton, Brioni, Brunello, Loro mainline, etc.  I think they source most of it out of NY and LA.

Found this Holt Renfrew paisley shroud collar bath robe? Playboy robe? I think... Lol.

For the price thought I'd take it. Didn't notice until after it has velcro inside near shoulders. Would this have a lining then? I was trying to look one up but can't find anything. I took a look to see if I missed spotting a liner piece but couldn't find anything.







Found my first Turnbull & Asser tie. Mostly picked it up as it was a first for me.

Too lazy to photograph. Must flaunt anyway:

 

Zegna 100% cashmere jacket

 

Bergdorf Goodman micro-wale corduroy pearl snap button shirt, made in Italy

 

Man, that micro-wale corduroy is the finest stuff I've ever touched. Beats ordinary corduroy hands down.

 

For myself? A bright yellow fleece jacket. Which one of my 17 yr old twins immediately glommed. This is why I can't have nice things.

Holy shit!!! I had an epiphany after last nights enlightenment and decided to go out and buy some shit and eventually sell it!! I think I'm off to a good start. Found some custom grade Church's, some Patagonia crap and a few Canali suits! The thrift GOD has shown me the light and I'm embarking on my Multi-Million Dollar Thrifting career! Thank you!!
