(It falls into a common category for me: Cat would kill me if I actually bought it.)
I think what rules about Goodwill is that it highlights the dichotomy between trash and treasure—often the presumption is that it must mean one or the other, but sometimes the in-between can offer a little bit of both.
One potential dream story idea of mine is to find an old vinyl record of some unknown performer, research where he came from, why he made the record, and what happened in the years since. There are famous examples
of this, and a whole record label
dedicated to ideas like this.
I think, though, that the secret to making stuff like this work is to start looking. Often, being inventive about digging holes is the starting point to finding a great story.
And for me, mostly stuck in my home, that means scrolling endlessly through ShopGoodwill. — Ernie @ MidRange
