Goodwill Central Texas is now on reStitch and it’s a Thrifter’s Dream!

I was so excited to have been asked to try out reStitch and give the online thrifting experience a try. For those of you that don’t know, reStitch is an online thrift store and the go-to marketplace for ‘shoptivists’ – people who want to change lives with every purchase! Behind reStitch is the team from Goodwill Industries of North Central Wisconsin and now Goodwill Central Texas is getting on board too!
I love treasure hunting, and only rarely buy anything new. There’s just so much wonder and magic involved in having something special in mind, and then the universe putting it out there just for you to uncover. I headed to reStitch.com with a few pieces in mind because I’m going to San Francisco next month and knew I wanted a fun coat to wear! Texas is nowhere near coat worthy quite yet, but I’m going to push through because I’m THAT ready for winter.
The website was super user-friendly, and you can search by size, color, or type of garment. I started browsing the coats and jackets, and was blown away by the number of pieces available. I eventually happened upon a fluffy, brown, faux fur coat that I immediately fell in love with. It seemed like just the piece to throw over a mini and some fun boots to round out a perfect chilly weather look. I found a black sleeveless mini with an open back detail that was the perfect addition to my collection of black minis – you can never have too many little black dresses! I loved the mod silhouette, and knew it would be perfectly versatile to combine with other pieces but also stand out on its own. Lastly, I found a really fun, metallic pleated halter top to round out my order, perfect with a pair of velvet bellbottoms I recently picked up.
My package arrived in just a few days and I couldn’t wait to open it up and see the pieces in person! First of all, the packaging was stellar and all of the pieces were wrapped so cutely and protected well in tissue. The clothing looked just as great in person as they did online. The mini still had the original tags (!), and the coat and halter looked brand new as well. Everything was super affordable too, and for the quality of the pieces, totally worth it. I had fun trying everything on and thinking of how I’d incorporate it into my wardrobe. I’m definitely bringing these pieces along for my road trip west, and I can’t wait for it to be chilly enough to break out the fluffy coat...maybe I’ll just push through and wear it no matter what – I like it that much! Overall, getting to explore and treasure hunt online at reStitch was a fun, affordable and convenient experience! I absolutely love what the universe sent my way and know you will too.
