It’s nearly Father’s Day and you know what that means–time to buy dad a new tie! Or is it? Trust me, your local Goodwill® store is sure to have a huge selection of ties to pick from. I’ve never stepped foot in a thrift store that didn’t. Some ties are printed with themes that are so hilarious they should really be framed.

Every time I happily enter a Goodwill store, I think, “I should be blogging for Goodwill® so that I can show people how many fabulous home furnishings they can create from all of these goodies!” I guess I hounded them long enough, because now I get to do just that!
