The Winter Sale’s Still Going Strong!

Like this year’s tempestuous weather, this Winter Sale just won’t quit. However, while snow and rain are getting old, a crazy-good deal on style is always welcome! Stop by any of our stores in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens (excepting the outlet), the Bronx, Northern New Jersey, Long Island, the Hudson Valley or the Capitol area to save 50% off on all winter textiles & accessories through Monday, February 28th.

As usual, in all the sales above discounts cannot be combined. If an item falls into two discount categories, Goodwill will apply the higher one. To find your local Goodwill, visit our neighborhood-by-neighborhood Guide to GoodwillNyNj or use the zip code locator on the “Find Goodwill” page. Here’s hoping Spring’s on its way – and with it, a whole new crop of great Goodwill sales!

Goodwill Gems: Get Ready for Spring

Spring is right around the corner – the groundhog promised! Despite the fresh snow this President’s Day, Spring will come before we know it. When that warm and wonderful season finally arrives, our columnist Lauren is determined to have her wardrobe ready. After weeks of scoring all-weather accessories at her local Goodwill (this purse, these heels, this belt…), she’s found one Goodwill Gem that is 100% Spring. Take a look:

A gauzy, vibrant, free-spirited scarf practically sings "Goodbye Winter; Hello Spring & sunshine!"

It’s textile transition time! For the weeks in between the worst of winter and real springtime weather, lighter versions of your favorite winter wear are the perfect pieces to help you through this difficult fashion season. The scarf pictured here, which I found at Goodwill’s amazing Chelsea location (really, this store is an accessory lover’s heaven), is just that kind of piece.
