Field Trip Adventure in SE PDX

Want to start buying used clothing and household items, but need someone to show you the ropes?  Well, you’re in luck!  I’ve scheduled a field trip adventure in Portland and you’re invited!  Get out your calendars (or smart phones) and enter this date:

Wednesday, January 26th, 2011 at 9am

We’re meeting at “The Bins” as I like to call them.  Come and see how it’s done.  You’ll learn the lay of the land, my favorite route to take in the store, and what items you should ask for an individual price on (items are priced by the pound).  Carpool and bring a friend.  It’s always more fun at the bins with a friend or two.

Goodwill Outlet – Portland Store – 1740 SE Ochoco Street

Milwaukie, OR  97222 – 503.230.2076

{Directions and map here}

Meet me at the front door of the store.  If it’s raining, I’ll be just inside the door.  I’ll be wearing a bright orange coat and my hair will be in a pony-tail.

I hope to see you there!

PS I like to bring a box of items to donate every time I “shop” at the bins.  Please consider doing the same.  There is a donation truck in the parking lot.  Don’t forget to get a receipt!

Don’t live in Portland but still want to find a “bins” near you?  Visit Goodwill Industries here.
