I love passing time on shopgoodwill.com. While the layout of the website leaves much to be desired, it’s a great place for fabulous cheap finds for the home. Despite the outdated HTML layout, it is a lot more convenient than rummaging through dusty shelves at your local Goodwill. While items like Hudson’s Bay point blankets are much coveted and often have intense bidding wars, there are a lot of awesome one-of-a-kind finds that receive much less attention.
Here are some great finds I’ve come across
The starting bid for this “radio/phono cabinet” was only $9.99! It ended up selling for $52.21, which is still quite a bargain. The only downside to purchasing furniture over goodwill online auctions is that you usually have to pick it up, so you can only shop locally.
Luckily, for smaller items you can still get delivery. These great bookends ended up selling for $26.
At $7, this vintage suitcase could make a great rustic accent.
Copper mugs and sugar dish, sold for $21.31.
This old radio sold for four dollars and one penny! Although it may not be functional, it’s still pretty neat, especially for a neophobe.
Last but not least, shopgoodwill seems to have a neverending supply of old typewriters. Some are in functional condition, others less so, but many are quite beautiful. This vintage Underwood typewriter is currently at $13.11, with less than 24 hours to go, it’s a steal compared to many of the offerings on etsy and the like. I definitely plan to get an old-fashioned type writer for my home in the future.
