Shopping with...Cory



Cory Deal, my fiancĂ©, wanted to go 

thrift shopping.


We decided to explore a new store, at least new to me.
This thrift store had been recommended to me by a co-worker the week before.

Goodwill in Anderson Township (right on 275 on Beechmont)


 The parking for Goodwill wasn't massive, but the adjoining lots made it feel that way.


The Goodwill location has an enormous amount of stock (and customers).

Great selection of shoes, including a healthy dose of brand new Target stock.

I wish I was cool enough to have organ skills.
Oh, and a vehicle with hauling capabilities.



Most of the area Goodwills have daily specials. 


Just like the Florence Goodwill,
this Saturday was 50% off of clothing.

Thrifting 101: throw everything you like in the cart
and narrow-down items at the end.

All 5 dressing rooms were packed
so I opted for trying on jackets in the aisle.

 This one was a winner!
More to come on this jacket later.

One of the main reasons for this trip was
to prove Cory WRONG.

In high school, Cory was a left tackle on the offensive line. Number 67 to be exact.
As you can see he still wears that sexy frame (hands off ladies and gents)
and when shopping, often finds it a challenge to fit his shoulders.

Our mission was sweaters. 
There was an entire rack of big and tall sweaters,
approximately 30 or so, in sizes ranging from XL-4XL.

 "Give me your tired, your poor,
your broad-chested and sweater-less."

Cory tried on a sweater and caught the spirit.
(spirit not included in price).

I love a man in a cardigan.

 The winning sweater. 


Thanks Cory!

Until next time, bon nuit!

  1. Haha I love it. My husband'll come with me on days he's feeling REALLY energetic because I have a hard time stopping thrifting once I start- "I just have to look at the dresses then I'll be done..." Great sweater you got for Cory! That's one massive Goodwill, btw. Never made it to that one and I'm wishing I had :)
