I know not all of the Goodwills are the same. I stopped in at the one closest to me today and the cashier told me that next week they will get their first big shipment of Halloween stuff!
I thought so too. I worked at Goodwill many years ago and we got shipments of everything from all over all during the year. My local Goodwill's have Halloween and other holiday decor out all year.I thought Goodwill was a thrift store? How do they get "shipments" of Halloween stuff?
Did not realize they stored stuff to display at a later date! Have not stopped by my Goodwill for a couple weeks but will stop and check it out. Love that place.I know not all of the Goodwills are the same.

I think that they have a centralized warehouse here.I thought Goodwill was a thrift store? How do they get "shipments" of Halloween stuff?
Awwww! That is a shame! Good thing it was for your Mom; probably about the only thing that makes it forgivable!However, they had two of THE MOST GORGEOUS antique wood & wicker wheelchairs last year. I wanted them so bad, but they were $200. I used to have one (which had been left in our house when Dad bought it), but while I while I was living in Vegas a couple of years ago, my sister sold it for $300 to help my mom pay a bill. It was in mom's basement, and she had some serious plumbing issues--the guy who fixed it offered to take $300 off her bill if they gave him my wheelchair. *sniffle* At least it was for my mom. I had planned on using it in my display with a twitching, mumbling "patient" when I moved back that year.
Ours here have them about twice per month on everything, and each week, they have on color tag a t 50% for the entire week. It runs Sunday through Saturday. I usually have good luck finding what I am looking for on sale for 50% off.I dont about all the areas, but I know down here they have 50% Saturdays about once a quarter. I've tried to ask them how they figure out or when the dates are, but the employees don't know until a day or 2 before. Its not heavily advertised, only on their website or the newspaper and thats it. But boy! there sure is a line at some stores!
