I’m not sure if it’s the colorful women’s blouse section or the semi to heavily used furniture that makes me instantly feel at home when I step into this unique smelling store. Blacks, Whites, Asians, Americans, people of the world: This is a place that knows no judgment. Whether you are buying clothes for your next Halloween party or legitimately updating your wardrobe, I’m sure Macklemore will meet you somewhere in between with nothing but encouragement.
You’ll never forget those classic images of yourself and all of your friends ridiculously dressed up for legendary nights out, brought to you by Goodwill. I know every time I put on my freshly pressed Dale Earnhardt Sr. sleeveless “Let Jesus Take the Wheel” shirt I think of a hand full of things: My country, my family, left turns, and Goodwill. Like your great grandmothers antique chest of drawers, some items you find at this treasure trove known as Goodwill are invaluable.
In a world where less is more — in the sense that we pay way too much for way too little — Goodwill serves as a sense of relief. There’s nothing like taking two arms full of exotic one-of-a-kind gear to the counter, and, after six minutes of scanning items, finding that your bill is less than $30. Not to mention, Goodwill focuses on vocational rehabilitation for disabled persons. Essentially it’s a wonderful win-win for everyone involved.
Goodwill or God’s will? I don’t see a difference.
