Hitting the Jackpot at Goodwill

I hit Goodwill today to shop for eBay items. I had exactly one hour to shop, since I left my son at home with hubby. Hubby had to work tonight so I had a schedule to keep. I was a bit stressed! :)

Here's what I found for us personally:

Sesame Street Chutes and Laders (like new!) $3

Blue Sealed Jar for my kitchen decor $2

Red, White & Blue Wreath from Target (new with tag), there were lots more!!!!! $.59

Ralph Lauren dress $3

Crewcuts (J Crew for kids) dress $3

Yes, I said Target up there. My favorite Goodwill (Garland, Texas) gets Target clearance!!!!! I asked about it and the cashier said Target just makes random donations. They were rolling a huge cart of $.99 ballet flats past as I walked in. I knew then it was going to be a good trip.

I also scored another 19 pieces (mostly breakables!) that I will turn into 13 eBay auctions. Not bad for an hours work and $34 total OOP. I will also sell the dresses when my daughter is done, worst case break even on them. Probably make a small profit. I think eBay is the coolest!

I am SO jealous of the wreath. We are moving and my living room colors are red, white and blue.

I'm also jealous of the target clearance!!

We just recently got a goodwill in our area and its the one of three thrift stores in the county so its always picked over. Im yet to find an amazing deal there except for some boys infant clothes with tags for 1.50 each. Great for a new infant but not brands for resale-ing.

I did just recently find a new thrift store about 35 mins from my house that I plan on frequenting. They have grab bags for CHEAP.

Also the nearest Large "bin" goodwill is over an hour away :(
