Since when does Salvation Army compete with antique store pricing?
amazed disgusted at the prices of our local Salvation Army! Every time I go in there, I say it will be the last time. But I LOVE to look. It’s the thrill of the hunt. But, I’m hunting buffalo, and bringing home bunnies. Don’t worry, they’re rabid bunnies. Ya, mean! With big teeth. *tough crowd*
I always here people talking about the great prices and finds at Salvation Army - in other cities. How can they get away with it? I mean, this stuff is donated. They didn’t pay for it? Lower the price. Sell it. Help a family. Repeat. Simple formula, right? A large majority of the furniture at our local, has been there for 6 months or more. Yep. Because it’s way overpriced. Sad.
Here’s a couple shots I grabbed with my iPhone, so you can see what I’m talking about.
couple big ol’ stains. fabric’s all worn.
yes, it’s cool. but it’s far from perfect. and it’s missing hard to find (and expensive) hardware.
But it’s not all bad. I mean, check out the Chucks! Huge score! These things are brand new. 3 bucks! Of course, I never find my size. Grabbed these for my
tiny footed lovely wife.
What are the prices like at your local Salvation Army? Do you buy from them or donate to them?
