Goodwill and thrift store shopping

I just needed to get some feedback from my followers. Is it just me or are prices for certain items going up in price at thrift stores and goodwills.

I don’t know about you but I believe there is someone that works for goodwill or the thrift stores that watch blogs, etsy shops etc to see what vintage items are selling for and they increase there prices.

Please let me know if you have seen the same things happening in your areas. Example I use to be able to find milk glass for a lot cheaper now it is still a deal but I seem prices from $6-$28 in the goodwill some even chipped or broken.

    exactly! here in sydney op and charity shops are now having to pay market rent (before they had free rent) and so they are employing valuers to price goods. it’s now a commercial enterprise. the very people who the shops are supposed to cater for can no longer afford to buy in them.

    Yes I totally agree with you. I’ve been wanting a vintage sequin shirt and every shirt I’ve found has been over $20. I’m willing to spend $10 AT MOST!

    Really prices go up and up and in some thrift stores and goodwills they are fixed according to the will of the store manager seeing the increase in market price.
