Spring is here—and we’ve got some great reasons for you to stop by our stores, donation centers, and job training and education centers! Tune into our blog for upcoming tips & tricks on spring cleaning, and tune in on our social media pages for upcoming giveaways!

We recently made some big changes to our Ravenna store—transforming it into the Goodwill Children’s Bargain Store! The store now features children’s clothes, shoes, toys, books, and furniture—and all at a great price! They’re currently open 11 am – 6 pm every day—and will be hosting a Grand Reopening on April 2!

EASTER: April 5
All of our stores, donation centers, and job training and education centers will be closed on Sunday, April 5 for Easter so our staff can enjoy the holiday!

Thanks to a partnership with United Way of King County, six of our Job Training and Education Centers will be hosting tax preparers to help you take care of your taxes. You can click here to learn more: http://bit.ly/SGWtaxhelp

Like previous years, we’re celebrating Earth Day with two weeks of twice-daily giveaways on our Facebook page! This year, we’ll be running the giveaways Monday – Friday from April 20 until May 1. There will be one ongoing grand prize drawing, as well. Local companies and organizations have donated over $2,500 in prizes to give away this year, so stay tuned!

We’ve teamed up with Audioasis on KEXP to present a benefit concert for Seattle Goodwill at Tractor Tavern on Wednesday, April 29. The show will feature local music talent including The Moondoggies and Deep Sea Diver

March 12, 2015

The right bag is an indispensable part of daily life. It might be your commuter bag (check out the Anne Klein tote below!), something for a night out - or your go-to purse, but in a world where women's pants pockets fit virtually nothing, the perfect bag is important. 

Thanks to our University District store's upcoming Designer Accessory Sale, you've got an opportunity to find THE bag at a great price. This Friday and Saturday (March 13th and 14th), swing by our U District store for an excellent selection of real and faux designer bags as well as shoes, other accessories, and a variety of items for men like ties, hats, shoes and belts! 

Feel free to RSVP to our Facebook Event - and check out our preview blogs featuring casual shoes, heels and boots, and black bags

Here are some of the bags that'll be available at the sale:

The Goodwill Treasure Hunt Contest

by Kim Merrikin, Seattle Goodwill
March 6, 2015

A lot of our customers compare thrift shopping to a treasure hunt—and we wholeheartedly agree with them. There’s nothing like the feeling of sifting through a rack and finding the perfect item. The magical item that is not only exactly what you were looking for (or maybe exactly what you didn’t know you were looking for), but at a great price.

To celebrate the art of the treasure hunt, we’re currently having a contest! You’ve got until 11:59pm PST on Monday, March 16th to enter to win up to $250 in gift cards to Anthony’s Restaurants (one of our favorite local restaurants) and Seattle Goodwill! Entering is simple—you can do it via the form below, or via our Facebook page at this link: http://bit.ly/GWTreasureHunt—all you need to do is fill out the form with your first and last name, email address, a caption, and your photo!

Invite your friends to vote for your entry—as the three prize winners will be selected by a panel of Seattle Goodwill staff from the top ten publicly voted entries!

And don’t forget that our sixth annual Designer Accessory Sale is happening on the March 13th and 14th at our University District location! The treasures you find at that sale can be entered in our contest! RSVP to our Facebook event page for early previews!

Designer Accessory Sale finds are wonderful entries for the contest, but any Goodwill-found items are welcome in our Treasure Hunt! It could be your awesome Glitter Sale find, that perfect piece of vintage Pyrex, a refurbished piece of furniture, or even the hard-to-find analog electronic components that allow you to keep your throwback gaming system up and running! All Goodwill treasures are welcome!
