Being a bonafide fashion junkie, there’s nothing I love more than finding chic clothing that expresses my unique sense of style without breaking the bank. That being said, I was elated when the OC Goodwill Boutique in Tustin first opened its doors last May. Designer duds at a fraction of the cost? What fashion-obsessed girl wouldn’t love that?!
I’ve been to my fair share of thrift stores and I have to admit, this boutique is quite the high-end treasure chest. It’s without a doubt on par with big name resale chains; however, when you shop at Goodwill of Orange County all sales directly support their mission of helping people who are facing barriers to get and keep jobs. Talk about feel-good retail therapy!
If you haven’t had a chance to take a peek at this hidden gem, you’re in for a real treat. You wouldn’t believe the great selection of items I found when I stopped in during a quick lunch break just last week…
Talk about a spectacular shoe haven! You can find brand new pumps, barely worn flats, and even quality pairs of gently used running shoes. Don’t even get me started the ample selection of fashionable fall boots. The best part? You can afford them ALL at an average price of $9.99 a pair!
I’m always enamored by the great variety of brands and styles that the racks are fully stocked with. You’ll find everything from Liz Claiborne blazers to BCBG dresses and 7 For All Mankind jeans. Best of all, the sections are color coded to make your shopping experience all the more simpler.
Who needs to spend a fortune on a brand new designer bag when you can find a slightly used one at an unbeatable price? I’m telling you, the collection The OC Goodwill Boutique has is phenomenal! Clutches, shoulder bags, totes, satchels, hobos, beach bags, briefcases… there’s a stylish purse for every type of occasion.
The Goodwill Boutique is a mecca for affordable home décor. Chic ceramic dishes, colorful wine glasses, oil and vinegar bottles, you name it! They even have a great selection of accent rugs and eclectic furniture pieces.
