Good Day at the Goodwill


Sully

Recommended Posts

I found some really good items on my last trip.

 

First thing I found was this pair of USN deck bibs. Contract places them in June of 1944.

On the same rack as the field pants was this almost mint condition M1951 Parka. Dated in May of 1951. Funny thing was it had a Betty Boop key chain hanging off the zipper pull.

As the family and I were leaving I saw this on a rack being brought out. A real nice military wool blanket and it still had it's tag. Contract dated 1970.

Great "Goodwill" saves! It is surprising what shows up in thrift stores.

Thanks for posting them.

Good finds Sully, better than anyone could hope for out of a month's worth of Goodwill visits; let alone one!

I never miss a chance to stop at any Goodwill, Salvation Army or thrift shop. If I have an errand that takes me within 10 minutes I stop. I've found many nice things. This was definitely one of my best stops.

Great finds, I live in thrift stores, we have one that gets trucks everyday, just never know what comes out.

I have not found anything at a goodwill store in 25 years, I think they have pickers in the back! Holding it for the highest bidder. Just my thoughts.....I quit going. Better luck at flea markets.
