Welcome to Goldwill Digger! Thank you for stopping by! I hope Goldwill Digger inspires you to visit your local Goodwill and find some gold of your own!
Shopping at thrift stores began before I could walk. As a child, I headed straight to book section grabbed a “chapter” book (Babysitter’s Club or Goosebumps), hid between the racks of clothes, and read for hours. As I got older and tall enough to reach the racks, I started digging…for hours. Living in a small town without a mall, I didn’t have access to the “cool” brands like Gap, American Eagle, and Abercrombie & Fitch. When I found a shirt from one of these mall stores (at a fraction of the retail cost), I was THRILLED.
Fast forward a few years (or fifteen), and here I am. I recently rediscovered my love for thrift stores, specifically Goodwill, in large part thanks to my Mom. She kept finding designer brands at her local Goodwill store, and it inspired me to start digging for myself. Fashion blogs have always been my vice, but I often found my bank account didn’t agree with my fashion blog taste (I’m looking at you Chloe Drew Shoulder Bag *le sigh*). So, I decided to start Goldwill Digger to show others all of the treasures found at your local Goodwill and how to incorporate these pieces into your everyday wardrobe. After all, “style is knowing who you are, what you want to say, and not giving a damn.” – Orson Wells
