Now you may say to yourself — geez, I already know about the Goodwill. Everyone knows about Goodwill and everyone who wants to thrift shop goes to it. Which may be true. But I’m starting out with an easy one, people. And also I was feeling the urge to go spend a few hours looking through clothes so this gives me a fix.
The Hyannis Goodwill is where you go for clothes. There are other things there too, like housewares but those are incidental. They still do the thing where the clothes are sorted by color rather than size, but what are you gonna do. It just makes the whole looking process more drawn-out.
We made a special trip out to Hyannis to visit on Saturday (01-06-18). If you don’t like people then I recommend avoiding the weekends really. This can get busy. (Again: golly what did you expect? It’s Goodwill.) Shoutout to our friend Sam who works there, who was putting the goods out on the floor today.
I typically need a shopping cart to carry all the items I try on here. The thing about it is then I have to try them on, and usually get only 20% of what I pick because of the size, or weird flaws, or eh. There are usually good brands here, and the selection tends to have more stylish clothes than other places on the Cape.
Here’s Saturday’s haul:
[Should I take a picture of every last thing? Or would that be too much?]
