I am always impressed by what people find at their local Goodwill. Because I am a thrifting addict, I regularly scroll through the thrift related hashtags on Instagram and drool over the things that other people all over the country have found. In Knoxville, we use the #FriendsofGoodwill hashtag to see what people have found at our locations. I was recently looking at all the posts from last year, and I want to share some of the amazing things that were found in our stores in 2015.
Regram from @just_a_reese. "In my Goodwill dress, because I don't have to spend hundreds of dollars to feel beautiful." Way to be awesome! Not only are you saving money and looking great, but your purchase helps fund job training in our community. What a great way to make a difference! #gowildcats #makeprommatter #goodwillfinds #goodwillprom #prom #promdress #friendsofgoodwill
Regram from @serendipitouslizzie: "Thrifted find of the week: three vintage mason jars! The tall one is by Atlas and dates back to at least 1960. The two smallers ones are by Ball, and based on the lgoos, I dated them back to 1950. :) Found at the Bearden Goodwill. #igotitatgoodwill #lizziefoundthisthing" #friendsofgoodwill #goodwillfinds #masonjars #trinkets #trinketholder #goodwill #bearden #knoxville
