The Goodwill Is Closing
The Goodwill at Bloor and Sherbourne is closing. It was at its previous location at Jarvis and Richmond that I first discovered bags of broken jewellery, found a Judith Leiber purse and all of my cutlery. At the current premises (so close to Rosedale), I found a 9 carat gold watch, an Yves Saint Laurent blazer and a Miu Miu dress.
I went last week for one final visit. While they haven’t had much in the way of jewels in ages they had bags and bags of loot this time. I bought four. They yielded some pretty amazing treasures (pictured above) including a silver earring by Hopi silversmith Namingha Raymie (which I turned into a pendant), a kooky sterling and anodized metal cuff bracelet and a bunch of funky and chunky costume pieces.
