I remember when I first starting thrifting (way back in the early nineties), Goodwill stores were dimly lit, kinda dirty, and drab. The only people shopping there were the Goth teens looking for a leather trench (hello) and people who shopped out of necessity on tight budgets. Well not anymore baby! (At least not down here in South Florida!)

Goodwill stores have been opening up with even more fabulous & fashionable visual presentation than some department stores I know of (NOT mentioning any names)...
Clever & EZ to shop merchandising
Such creativity! Such impact! and so Fun! of coarse you'd be proud to say you got it at Goodwill!
Two of the newest locations in my area now actually have a visual team visiting the stores to update the displays and set-ups.
So clean, bright and spacious...
Does your neighborhood Goodwill look this GOOD???!!!
Goodwill's got Goodvisual!
When they had first opened, (before I was blogging)
they had a HUGE canopy of collected shopping bags
suspended in the main window at Taft...

and although they do occasionally receive furniture donations, these stores are both primarily clothing, shoes, books, bags, and accessories.
