7 Valuable Things to Look for at Goodwill

Vintage Canning Jars: Mason jars, especially the blue-tinted vintage Ball jars, are sought-after items for collectors or versatile home decor, also ideal for canning purposes.

Picture Frames: Even with less appealing artwork, thrift store frames, whether ornate or simple, can be repurposed for hanging art you love or painted to match your style.

Wooden Furniture: Thrift stores offer affordable solid wood furniture, such as desks and dressers, providing timeless style. A fresh coat of paint and knob replacement can give outdated pieces a modern look.

Colored Pyrex: Vintage Pyrex bowls with pretty colors and bold patterns are highly coveted by collectors, offering both style and durability for kitchen use.

Cast-Iron Cookware: Heavy-duty cast-iron skillets, pots, and pans found at thrift stores, even if in rough shape, can be restored and reseasoned, offering quality cookware at a bargain.

Books: Thrift stores are treasure troves for books, offering popular reads at significantly lower prices than bookstores, making it an excellent source for book lovers.

Silverware: Tarnished solid silver items from thrift stores can be polished and restored, potentially being sold for a great price depending on the silver's current value.
