    Very rarely do I buy clothes from an actual retail store. I buy most of my clothes at any Goodwill I can find! My co-worker & I love to see what outfits we can put together. We work at a boutique & sell gifts, purses, jewelry, etc., but no clothes. We pride ourselves with thrift shopping & when gals come into our store they are always complimenting us on our outfits & we proudly say “We are wearing all Goodwill clothing today!”.

      Christy, that’s awesome! Love to hear that you are not only putting together outfits, but spreading the word to your customers! I rarely buy clothes from retail stores anymore either – almost all of my outfits are from Goodwill or Salvation Army. Thanks for commenting!

  3. I’m definitely part of that 20% and I bet the percentage goes up as the recession continues.

      Hey Alicia, I bet you’re right – especially with all the predictions of global economic collapse! Yikes! Good luck with your business!
