Want to get into actor Burt Reynold’s pants- literally? ShopGoodwill.com is the go-to place to get Burt’s pants (and lots of other finds too). Here is the perfect online tool for those time-constrained or homebound thrift’n-istas who want thrift bargains but have no desire to spend energy and time hunting store to store.
Currently ShopGoodwill.com has those aforementioned Burt Reynold’s pants on their top hot 50 list. There’s no paperwork to verify their ownership but the typed label inside is from Cotroneo Costume Shop of Hollywood CA attributing them to Burt Reynolds on 10/1/87 (pants are 33” waist, 31.5” inseam, 42 “ length). The navy pants, an apparent part of a tuxedo set, are advertised from the Jacksonville Goodwill of North Florida. The actor has retired to that Florida area, so the pants could be the real deal. Thrift’n-ista collectors of Hollywood memorabilia, take notice of this Goodwill offering!
The online venue of Goodwill is very easy to use. First make sure to specify ShopGoodwill.com, not a similar variation of that, otherwise a slew of estate sale auctions and other related topics pop up. A shopper must register in the system first, but after that, just sign in and start the window-shopping. Peruse their constantly changing items in various categories--sports, tableware/kitchenware, toys/games, pets, clothing, luggage, antiques, top fifty hot item list and so forth. The site also has a calculator tool to estimate the delivery cost of your find to help a shopper decide their starting bid. The bidding start and close dates are clearly shown, along with the starting bid information.
The fun part about ShopGoodwill.com is the range of Goodwill store items that can be accessed from all over the country, especially if you are on the hunt for certain items. There is an ever-changing host of interesting items to study. Looking for an ornate Indian style metal and wood birdcage offered from a Goodwill store in Minnesota? Look no further than ShopGoodwill.com. Want to bid on a Fender acoustic electric mandolin complete with case, a steal with a starting bid at $96? The Columbia Willamette Goodwill in Hillsboro, OR is waiting for your online offer! Or how about some Converse Hip Wader hunting boots from a Goodwill in San Diego CA- a necessity for that next fly fishing trip on your calender?
By the way, per my last check of the ShopGoodwill site, it seems someone else is getting into those Burt Reynold’s pants. The rest of us thrift’n-istas have missed that opportunity…but there are lots of other possibilities out there.
