The Good and Bad of Goodwill

Ok, you know how I love Goodwill? And you know how there’s this one store in South County that I find great things?

Well, it didn’t disappoint last night!

For the London trip, I decided I needed a longer coat. The only long one I have is a black leather coat my parents bought me in high school for a DC trip. I love it but it doesn’t do well when you layer sweaters underneath it, so not the best for the Europe trip.

On a whim, I stopped by my favorite store for some browsing. And found this lovely…


She’s a knee-length red wool coat from somewhere (can’t remember the label) that is SO nice and warm and perfect for the layers of sweaters underneath it. Plus, it looks pretty awesome with my white microfleece hat, right? Yup, she’s pretty yummy.

Did I mention she was $10?

Sold. :)

But lest you think Goodwill is all roses and ponies, here is a coat that looked SO good on the hanger. It was the right length, right weight and it had a hood!


Um… no, I don’t need to look like a Jedi in Europe, thankyouverymuch.

I went with the first one.


  1. If you ask me, "Jedi in Europe" sounds like a hilarious Hollywood blockbuster just waiting to be made!

  2. See, you should have bought the Jedi coat; could have used it for a Halloween costume next year. Or perhaps for your next SF convention trip! ;-D

  3. Hahahahaha - Jedi! Hilarious!

    I love the red coat! That's so perfect for winter, when everyone else is so dark and drab. Great find.

  4. I love the red coat! I'd love to have one like that! The other is definitely a "no" but still pretty funny!
