I'm a big fan of Goodwill Stores. I have been donating to them for years, but became a customer when I opened up my photo studio. I get props there from time to time and it has worked out great. Whenever I feel my existing props are getting stale or overused, I pop on over to Goodwill and usually always find something cool. When I photograph little kids, I sometime bring out a whole collection of wool hats I got from the Crown Point Goodwill Store. Nothing like babies in big, oversized winter hats!!
I came across this article from the Boston Globe about a trend of buying wedding dresses from resale shops. I hadn't thought of that before. Imagine the savings!! Give it a read and view the video. Let me know what you think.
