5 Surprising Items You Can Find at Goodwill

With an inventory that’s updated each day with freshly donated clothing and household goods, Ohio Valley Goodwill’s retail stores are a treasure trove for thrifty bargain hunters! Part of the fun of thrift shopping at Goodwill is the thrill of the hunt, because you never know what you might find in one of our stores. Here are a few items you might be surprised to learn that you can find at Goodwill.

“New with tags” clothing and accessories

In addition to selling gently-used donated items, Goodwill also frequently stocks clothing and accessories that are brand new with the original tags still attached. Enjoy the fun of hunting for both used and new items at some of the best prices around.

Vintage canning jars

Vintage glass canning jars are popularly used for weddings, parties, and even home decor. Ohio Valley Goodwill has a wide selection of glassware – including canning jars – on our shelves. Not only are canning jars decorative, but they’re also functional! Use the glass jars to preserve food, store knick-knacks on your desk, or repurpose into a stylish flower vase.

Halloween costumes

It’s never too early to start planning the perfect Halloween costume, and you can always find an assortment of items at Goodwill to help you make a creative, unique costume. If making a costume from scratch isn’t your style, our Goodwill stores often feature a selection of donated store-bought costumes and Halloween accessories, too. Instead of shopping in a big box store for your costume, stop by your local Goodwill store to find what you need and save!

Rare books

Collecting or antique books is a fun hobby, whether you want to build your library or decorate your home. At Ohio Valley Goodwill, our shelves are constantly updated with donated books, making our stores one of the best places to search for rare and valuable first edition copies of your favorite books.

Designer brand clothing
