She gave us the scoop on all the festive and fabulous finds starting with personalized presents.

One of a Kind Finds

Dishes and Bakeware
- "Goodwill is a fantastic place to find dinner sets and bakeware," she also explained. "We’ve got a variety of pieces, and the great thing about the holidays is the colors are very similar so it’s very easy to do mix and match."
- They even have some brand new nested bakeware sets with motifs including Christmas trees and stars.
- They also stock some great brand new things for the holidays – including a unique hat, socks and bags for your holiday gifts.
Greatest Gift = Helping Others
