Your goodwill is a lot better than ours ... I've been checking ours about once every few weeks ...

But nothing really to be found. :(

idk if this is a nationwide trend... but the employees at all the local Goodwill/Salvation Army Stores treasure-pick what comes in

I know this from seeing easily identifiable items I have donated to them at the flea market, at the booth of someone I recognized as a Goodwill employee!

Same thing happens around here. One local goodwill has people working 8 hours a day baling and shipping clothes overseas. Everything else is picked over when it comes in.

I go to Goodwill and pick through their plates and the like. I usually find maiji-period Japanese porcelain that people don't know what it is and donate it. I sell those on eBay with other things. lately, I have found Goodwill jacking up their prices a LOT. I've seen unmarked hand-painted plates for $9.99 when they used to be $0.99-$2.99.
I all but stopped going to the Humane Society thrift store. They are worse than the Goodwill. They think they're the Tiffany's of the thrift stores, lol
