Yellow Large Bowl find at Goodwill

Hey everyone!  I joined a couple of weeks ago, but haven't had time to write yet.  I haven't been finding much lately, and this weekend I finally found a copule of pieces at our local Goodwill, including this large yellow bowl in almost perfect condition. I already have the same bowl (which i use as my  popcorn bowl), but the paint is a little bit scratched and is matte instead of glossy like this, so I was excited to find this.  That was until I flipped it over and looked at the price- $15!  It was in such good condition I was actually tempted to buy it, but it was just a little too much.  I brought it up to the register with a smaller blue blow (that was marked $10) and asked to talk to the manager.  I told her I'd bought similar pieces there for much less and she ended up reducing the yellow one to $6 and the blue one to $4- she said they had a new pricer who was pricing everything way to high.  I felt a little wierd to ask but she agreed right away and had no problem giving me a new price, so I guess its always worth it to ask. :)

  3. I found a Talbots cardigan once at a Goodwill priced at $15! I was shocked that they were charging $15 for a *clearly used* cardigan, so I talked to a manager and he only charged me $3. Never tried that with Pyrex, but I never find Pyrex at Goodwill :-/

    1. Ive seen the same item on the shelf for two totally different prices. It's annoying because it all matters who's the one pricing that day.
