Q & A with Crystal L. - Goodwill's 2018 Ultimate Upcycling Contest Winner

1. What was behind your inspiration for the portable make-up vanity?

I've always wanted one. Since I was a little girl. I've become more and more interested in makeup, and applying it, to the point that I've joined groups on Facebook and watch tutorials. These women, all of them have one, and they're gorgeous, but my room just doesn't have the space. Plus they're expensive. So when I saw the chest, it was like bingo, here's my vanity!

Boho Elegant Themed Wedding Using Upcycled Items from Goodwill!

By Teri Peterson

What is the date and theme for your wedding and how did you come up with inspiration for it?

The date of the wedding is May 19, 2018.

The inspiration for a “Boho Elegant” themed wedding began with my desire to express myself as an artist, the love of hunting for exceptional items, and the challenge to host a smashingly beautiful wedding on a budget.

Update Your Wardrobe for Spring with Goodwill

Attention Goodwill shoppers: The Fashionable Fox here. If you haven't started updating your spring wardrobe, now is the time!

I love it when the seasons change because the racks at my local Goodwill get a change up as well. And when the spring arrives, it's sundresses galore! Sandals for days! Goodbye sweaters and hellooo blouses!

Declutter Your Home and Donate with Purpose to Goodwill

By Gazelle Arga, Marketing Coordinator for Goodwill

It's starting to feel like spring! And, you know what that means—that's right, it’s time to start spring cleaning!

Over the last couple of years, the minimalist home decor trend has taken over. Gone are the days of cluttered bookshelves and overstuffed cabinets.

Goodwill Shoe Haul


By Laura Fox, The Fashionable Fox

HOLY MOLY! The Fashionable Fox hit the ultimate jackpot this month at my local Goodwill.

It was just like any other day... I was strolling the aisles when I came across a basket FULL of brand new shoes from Target! Is this real life?!

As with anything at a thrift/resale store, you pray to the shopping gods that it's your size, and lucky for me, the bulk of these shoes were in my 8-9 shoe size range. WAHOO!

Recycled Beverage Coasters

By Nicole Rogers Schmirler

With the fall season upon us, I naturally think of Christmas gifts for family, friends and colleagues. An all-out gift-giving frenzy is not my style. Nope. I’m centered on one-of-a-kind AND cost-effective presents. My 2016 agenda is protecting my home’s surfaces using recycled materials that flash style—beverage coasters! The good news is Goodwill has just about everything I need, literally.
