Goodwill come up of the day.....

So, I don't know about you guys, but I peruse Goodwill sometimes to find knick knacks and steals.

Today's deal?

A pair of Joe Rocket Ballistic pants size "M" (My size).

Condition is 9.9/10

New these go for anywhere between $140 and $180.

Got these for $2.99 (+tax) I snagged a few other items like a Krup waffle maker (Retail is $45, I got it for $3.99)

Huge thanks to whomever donated them!

Of course, I'm sure 'Ol Flop shops here too.

Holy Jew deal of the century!
Bernie sanders signature edition MC pants. I wonder who the dropped those off. Had to be some widowed spouse or something.

Must say nicely done, hard to top that one.

Last time I went into a goodwill they had crappy used pants for twenty dollars. I'm assuming they have decided to go back to their old ways?

Their most expensive pants were like $7.49 ?

Plus all items with a green tag were 30% off. Every week they pic a different color and you take 40% off.

5 star thread bro.

I'll have to head over this week and see what I can find. Might have to check out the SE goodwill if I don't find my kind of pricing on this side.

This was at the "Select" store on 45/FM 646. "Select" stores normally carry better stuff.

That place is almost as bad as Lakewood. Glad you got a deal on the pants every time I go there the is way overpriced maybe you are holding out on the good location and days to go.

I'm an old fkucer. In the 80's I was in a longhair rock band. We bought most of our stage clothes at St. Vincent DePaul and Goodwill. No spandex, but chute pants, boots, buy a $30 name brand shirt and rip the out of it. . . . . it was GR8. We even got one of our foggers there.
Right after that thing went to 773H is when I got way interested in bikes. So for a couple years I was riding my 89 ZX10 with chute pants, cool (stupid ) boots, and one sparkly glove. . . . ha
