Craft Goodwill with me!
As much as I hate to admit this to everyone online, I am a major goodwill shopper when it comes to craft supplies. I hate to admit it because its been my little secret for YEARS. I frequent them often and sometimes find some really nice gently used items.
I feel like there are some resellers that have started buying from goodwill and the prices have been driven up a bit, but I just buy stuff for my personal use.
Below are my recent goodwill finds. Check out your local thrift stores. You would be surprised at the items I have found.
Perfect Pearls, Perfect Medium, and Inka Gold in this box
Approximate Retail Value $90 Goodwill Price: $5.49
Approximate Retail Value $87.91 Goodwill Price: $3.49
Scotch Advanced Tape Glider
Approximate Retail Value $34.99 Goodwill Price: $1.49
DCWV La Creme Stack
48 sheets 8x8 flocked sheets of paper
Approximate Retail Value $ 19.99 Goodwill Price: $3.49
I guessed on the approximate value, I can only find it on ebay for $25-$30
Approximate Retail Value $39.99 Goodwill Price: $4.49
Approximate Retail Value $10.00 Goodwill Price: $4.99
This is my best guess of retail price. I know it would be more than that especially with shipping.
Premium Leather Scrapbook 8x8
Best guess Approximate Retail Value $10 Goodwill Price: $2.49
I bought 3 :) I want to put my printed 8x8 pages from my Project Life app in these. (I blogged about it earlier)
This is only a few of the items I have purchased lately from my local Goodwill store. I always see stamps, paper, and albums. I rarely pay full price for a scrapbook album because I see them there all the time.
I also find Xyron machines there all the time for $5.00 and under.
Go check them out!
