Goodwill Displays Its Strangest Donations


Goodwill Industries

A live grenade. A bloody sheet with a bullet hole. A dog’s remains. A bag of pot.¬†Inflatable dolls. Yes, Goodwill has seen some crazy stuff pass through its donation stations and this week the Fort Worth Goodwill chain is displaying it’s best (or worst) items in a “rogue gallery” in support of Goodwill Industries Week May 2-8.¬†River Oaks store manager, Frances Lopez, said they’ve had other, well, interesting items come through as well,”We actually received a sex swing once,” she told The Dallas Morning News. The adult-size Jolly Jumper made of black leather and chrome rings sold for $20. All in all, this has to be the most successful marketing campaign Goodwill has had in years. I don’t know why they didn’t think of it before. The most interesting part of the Goodwill experience is always the crazy stuff you find. The sales are just an added bonus. I love my Goodwill, though lately the selections have been so-so, and enjoy dumping my goods in the store. I always find great, name brand dress pants there. I take them to the tailor and still spend less than half of what I would if I went to a department store. I heart Goodwill!
