All those sales might put you in the market for a new-to-you pair of shoes. Well, we’ve got you and your tootsies covered. Take a look and, come Saturday, July 28, take 25% off shoes (note: some restrictions apply):

Just in case you’re not in the know yet, a Goodwill Window Sale is when the best items in the store (which have been displayed in the window for days if not weeks) go on sale. There are often designer items and high-priced toys in the mix. We’ve seen everything from red lacquered Chinese lions to a Ferragamo heels to pristine electric guitars. Crowds form early, so try to get to the store well before doors open.

Happy Sales, Goodwill fans!
