These 17 Items Will Not Be Accepted at Indiana Goodwill Stores
My father-in-law recently held a yard sale with the goal of making a little extra money (duh), but more importantly, getting rid of a bunch of stuff that was just taking up space. He had quite a few things left afterward and we decided to take it all to Goodwill. As we were unloading this extremely random collection of items, I wondered if Goodwill would even take all of it. They did.
Goodwill obviously has a wide variety of items to choose from. I think it's their ever-changing and unpredictable selection that makes shopping there so fun - you just never know what you're going to find. There are some things, however, that I know you will not find at Goodwill stores in Central and Southern Indiana. Before your next trip to Goodwill, check out the list below of donations that they will NOT accept.
