Thrift Trip Recap


Goodwill Keystone Area Thrift Trip a Success! 

Thrift Trip Recap
Vanessa & Kim enjoy browsing spring fashions during our Thrift Trip.

Goodwill Keystone Area held its second Thrift Trip on Saturday, May 19th. Led by Goodwill’s own fashion blogger, Kirsten, thrifty shoppers armed with Goodwill coupons and in search of unique deals made stops at four Goodwill stores for a day of retail therapy.

Saturday morning’s chilly, rainy weather did nothing to dampen the spirits of the 32 Thrift Trip participants boarding the coach at the Lincoln Highway store in Lancaster. All the shoppers on the trip, whether they were mother and daughter pairs, groups of friends, or lone thrifters, were excited to begin their special ladies’ day out.

The Palmyra store was the trip’s first stop. The Lemoyne store was next, followed by a leisurely lunch and door prize giveaway at Texas Roadhouse in Harrisburg. The coach then continued on to the York store before returning to Lancaster.

Thrift Trip Recap
Judy, a second time Thrift Trip shopper, discovered fantastic fashion bargains at the York Rte 30 store.

The Thrift Trip shoppers found many great deals on designer and brand name clothing, electronics, housewares, and other items. Both the inside overhead compartments and the storage areas under the coach were all but overflowing with shopping bags full of their finds by the end of the day. The participants were happy with their purchases and the camaraderie of sharing their shopping experience with like-minded bargain hunters, and a great time was had by all.

Thanks are due to the Thrift Trip participants (and other Goodwill shoppers and donors), whose purchases support Goodwill’s mission of helping people with disabilities or other barriers to independence in achieving their fullest potential as workers and as members of the broader community.

Be sure to keep an eye out for upcoming Thrift Trips and other promotions or events in your area by joining Goodwill Keystone Area’s email list, ask your sales associate to add email to your rewards account when shopping Goodwill.

Like new Vera Bradley roller bag – terrific find at Lemoyne store.

Goodwill Keystone Area would like to thank Salon Enso and Spring Gate Vineyard for generously providing door prizes, as well as Premiere #1 Limousine Service for the spotlessly clean coach and capable, friendly chauffeur.
