All you need is love!
Like we always say, you don’t have to spend a lot to give a lot. In fact, some of the best gifts are those that barely cost anything at all, and show how well you know the person receiving the gift. At Goodwill, we make it especially easy to find that special person a gift they’re sure to love. We have something for every personality!
Check out some of our favorite gift ideas below, then head to your local Goodwill to pick your’s up!
Thanksgiving is right around the corner! I have always loved Thanksgiving (and this time of year, in general) because it means spending time with the people you love and eating SO MUCH good food, which just so happen to be my two favorite hobbies.
Hello! My name is Emma and I am a 23-year old nurse-by-night and creative-by-day. I love to thrift, decorate, craft and create. From my wardrobe to my living room, I am always using my creative energy to express myself. My apartment is one of my favorite projects.
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!

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.
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!

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.

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!
