What Can Be Found In Your Local Goodwill?

Venturing into any Goodwill of Southwestern Michigan can, often times, result in some great thrift store finds. We’re much more than a secondhand store; if you’re unsure about what to expect, this guide will help fill you in. These are things you can find, but availability is not guaranteed.


Used Goods

  • Silverware – Yes, you can find real silverware that can be polished to look like new! Saving you hundreds over retail.
  • Dishware – We do get new dishware in, but we get significantly more used dishware donated. This is a great opportunity to get a cast iron skillet that has been seasoned already.
  • First Edition/Signed/Original Books – The amount of books that come in to our donation centers would shock any book lover.
  • Picture Frames – Often times people don’t check or even consider picture frames when they donate them.
  • Clothing and Other Household Items – You can find furniture, lamps, rugs, vintage clothes, shoes/boots, and other household goods.
Keeping track of our monthly and seasonal sales can turn up even better deals!

New Goods

  • Area Rugs – High quality rugs that other stores sell for hundreds; save money and get them from us for a fraction of the price.
  • Dishware – We regularly carry small dishware sets, large dishware sets, plates, bowls, platters, etc.
  • Bedding – Find NEW pillows, blankets, weighted blankets, and sheets.
  • Home Goods – Other home goods that can you can find in our stores include: Light bulbs, batteries, water filters (Brita, Pure, etc), Trash Cans, Toasters, Convection ovens, and a lot more.
