Goodwill and Sal Army have both fallen from the purer faith. Even St. Vincent de Paul (regional?) has 'Targetfied' their establishments. I was geezin to the wahine when we visitied my old college haunts recently.

AARRGGHH! I am so saddened by this.
The only way to combat this is to stand outside the goodwill box and ask people what they are donatign before they toss it in the box! Or drive by the store in the middle of the nite and see what people left by the door after hours. I once saw an amazing driftwood 1950s lamp and briefly thought of taking it. Then I decided it would be way too pathetic to steal from a thrift shop! So I went there the next day and asked about it and they had no idea what I was talking about.

You guys know Goodwill's had their own auction site for some time?

http://www.shopgoodwill.com/

There's something shady about that site though. Items seem to usually go for far more than they would on ebay or in the stores. I sometimes get of a conspiratorial mindset and think Goodwill employees go in and try to jack the price up. Bookmark a few items and watch them. See if they don't go for a lot more than you'd expect. Or maybe I'm just crazy...

I had no idea Goodwill was running their own auction site. I just checked out their household goods section, and they are selling a crystal bowl from Tiffany's. Who on earth is donating anything from Tiffany's to the thrift store??? Ivana Trump's cast offs?
Regardless, their stuff does seem a bit pricey all things considered.
