Go To The Thrift Shop Without Leaving Your House?
If you want to pop some tags, you usually have to drive to the thrift shop. Well Goodwill is about to change all of that. The other day they launched a new website for ONLINE thrifting called GoodwillFinds.com.
We were shocked to find out that until this, Goodwill didn't have a centralized online business. Basically, it was random store locations that sold things through, Ebay, Craigslist, Marketplace, and sites like that.
They have a little bit of what you'd expect. Clothes, collectables, electronics, and the usual stuff you would see in any particular store. There is a downside, you won't find anything DIRT CHEAP. Nothing uploaded wasn't at least about $5 and you cover shipping.
It's a cool concept, but if you still like thrifting in the actual shop, Lansing does have a few good ones.
Metro Retro on Grand River is a really cool spot. They have really cool stuff and the shopping vibe is fantastic.
Thrifty Treasures is packed full of everything. Clothing, pictures, stuff you didn't think existed any more.
MSU Surplus sell almost everything. Furniture, lab equipment, food, and then some. You can basically buy almost anything. I mean isn't that what thrifting is about. "One man's trash is another man's treasure? "
I am not surprised that thrifting is moving online. Vintage is always cool. Goodwill does a lot of good so hopefully this helps than continue that. With prices being so high, a lot of people turn to used stuff. Maybe it will be nice to see packages that don't just come from an Amazon truck.
If you do like thrifting, online or in person, maybe you can find something from one these long gone retail establishments:
