Thrift Store Dumpster Diving

Thursday, June 24, I went Dumpster Diving in the Goodwill Clearance Store on Meeting Street.

It was by far the most interesting experience I've had this summer. Some of the bins were on pallets and 4-feet high.  I was bent deep and covered in hunting for flannel. This (above) was the store with that produced the most--25 lbs/$30 worth.

10 Thrift Stores Visited! 
Why shop?  I am purchasing flannel sheets to use in making feminine sanitary pads for the ladies in South Sudan. We are on a two-part mission.  1. We will be making pads to send to the missionaries in South Sudan to give out to the women out of love and an opportunity to reach out to them so they may share/spread the gospel. 2. We will send materials to South Sudan so the ladies may make their own pads--enabling them to "Teach a man to fish", so to speak.
His House Thrift Store on Hwy 1 near Barnyard Flea Mkt. is my favorite His House.
Stepping Stones Thrift Store on Hwy 1 near the Cayce-West Columbia Library was the most generous/best value. They even gave me a dozen Bibles for free to add to our shipment to S. Sudan. Faith Based!
St. Paws Thrift Store in Triangle City was the cleanest and best shopping experience for a regular middle class girl like me.
