It’s Thursday again, and a thrift shoppers favorite day in the week. It’s one day when a dollar will buy virtually anything, from Ralph Lauren to Coldwater Creek to Ann Taylor Loft. One of the best “fishing holes” to find fashion treasures in Columbia keeps getting better. Goodwill Industries International of Columbia has a half price savings corner filled with racks most days and one dollar racks on Thursdays and Fridays. There are many Goodwill thrift stores in Columbia. Just enter your zip code to in the box where it says, “Find Your Local Goodwills.”
The one dollar racks are crammed with tanks, tops, knits, tees, beaded tops, sweaters, suits, skirts, dresses, jeans, trousers, skirt and pant suits and much more. This week there are some nice pieces of negligee and formals, and a rack a really nice black leather jackets that look good as new for men and women. It’s a great way to spend an hour or two, and hidden treasures are sure to show up. It wouldn’t be surprising if you met people you know there taking advantage of the bargains too. The sale racks usually drop to fifty cents on Sunday for even better fashion fishing.
The dollar racks can also help thrifty fashion shoppers earn a little extra money by purchasing name brand clothing in mint condition, such as Tommy Hilfiger and Lauren jeans, Ralph Ann Taylor Loft and Cato tops, and Coldwater Creek casuals and reselling them on eBay or at your local consignment shop for much more than you paid. Some items are actually donated brand new and have store price tags attached. These are perfectly good for gifting throughout the year. This week’s fashion finds included a russet long sleeved scoop neck knit top from Cato, a deep purple V-neck long sleeve tee by Rena Rowan, and a pair of straight leg jeans from Land’s End in a difficult-to-find tall length, all in “like new” condition. A few people were choosing Halloween costume pieces, including bridal gowns, strange hats and shabby wigs, and ugly outdated polyester.
