Lori and I ended up at a Goodwill Outlet store last week. We didn't realize until we walked in that it was the type of place where they roll out these big "bins" (if you want to call them that, they were not very deep) full of stuff, and you have to dig through them.
It was an "experience", and we almost walked back out after seeing what it was like in there. To be honest, Lori was ready to leave right away, but as soon as I found something I wanted, I figured "What the hell", and kept looking. There was a lot of crap, frankly, and a lot of broken stuff, and a lot of people digging through it all, too.
But I found the lovely little vintage angel ornament pictured at the top of this post, and I found this pretty little vintage evening bag, made in Italy, below - which I ended up carrying that evening to a wedding we attended:
Like I said, it was definitely an interesting experience. Not exactly my favorite kind of thrifting. But if you are willing to take the time to dig, I suppose it can pay off.
