Have you heard of Goodwill outlet stores? We have one that just opened up in May, 2011. Merchandise that does not sell in the regular Goodwill stores is shipped to the outlet and placed in huge bins. It's located along highway 40 just before you hit downtown St. Louis. It's last call for all these items, what doesn't sell is gotten rid of. We are living green by shopping there, right? At least that is what I told myself when I saw all the bins.
Shoppers have to sift through these to find their treasures, items are not sorted and barely organized. There are huge bins of books, records, dishes, clothes and misc. items. Items are sold by the pound, not by item. They roll the bins out to a waiting crowd every so often. You can hear the roar when a new bin comes out filled with fresh items. This photo is from google images.
Wanna see what I got????
Wonderful vintage children's blocks. This wonderful old book cover...the book may have buried somewhere in one of the bins but I couldn't find it. I'm sure someone will be able to upcycle this into something fabulous!
A couple of books with date on the inside.
I can never turn my back on books with pictures on the front cover!
I love fabric from the 30-50's, old paper such as postcards, magazines, old Christmas, well I guess anything old!! I also love to scrapbook and like vintage graphics from the 30-50's. I currently sell through my two Etsy stores, AntiquesGaloreGal and VintageTinsel
