Secondhand isn’t Second Class

First class, first place. When something is #1, it is considered to be the best.

With that being said, buying or owning secondhand clothing/items was almost never an option in my family. I grew up believing that  it had to be brand new in order to be the best.  Read more about it in Suburban Finance.

  1. Many people feel that way but I have proudly always done the bulk of my clothing shopping at Goodwill and other thrift stores like it. I have even managed to find some collectibles over the years at Goodwill and sold them for a profit on ebay.

      That’s pretty cool you were able to find some collectibles at Goldwill and sell them for a profit on eBay. I wonder if people who are getting rid of stuff realize that some of it may be worth something to someone on eBay.

      • Yep, they are. When you donate to Goodwill, the stuff gets sorted into three different categories. Website auction, in-store auction and floor sales. People donate high quality gold and silver jewelry as well as other collectibles so they can take the full value as a tax deduction. The really good stuff never makes it to any Goodwill store. It all goes to the website.

        It actually makes sense if you think about it. If they had gold and silver items worth several hundred dollars in the stores, they would have to have security guards, cameras, more expensive doors etc.
