Salvation Army Thrift Store Warehouse Tour and WorthPoint Reseller Workshop | Thriftanista in the City


Salvation Army Thrift Store Warehouse Tour and WorthPoint Reseller Workshop

Thanks Worthpoint and Salvation army for the resellers workshop and treasure hunt day. It was a wonderful learning experience and a great way to celebrate Earth Day!

I don’t normally click on Facebook ads but I was quite curious as a couple of my favorite places were mentioned - Salvation Army and eBay. It was well targeted! I had heard of Worthpoint but had never fully understood the site so was really glad to be properly introduced and educated on its uses.

WorthPoint is a database of over 200,000+ makers’ marks, autographs, patterns and symbols (MAPS) to identify items and uncover the history, value and authenticity.

Resellers use the site to:

  • create a personal digital archive of prized possessions

  • Find accurate pricing trends to buy better and sell better

  • Expand knowledge base with their digital library of over 8,000 books, guides, and catalogs

To highlight these services, we were treated to a crash course on assigning value to artwork and listing on eBay.

We had some time to treasure hunt in the store and do what thrift shoppers love to do -- SHOW AND TELL! It was nice seeing what others were attracted to and attaching value to those treasures. I used my time to look for items to add to The Thriftanista Closet

If you’ve been a longtime viewer of Thriftanista in the City then you know I’ve partnered with the Salvation Army thrift store before. I love the mission and commitment to doing the most good. 

My absolute favorite part of the day was the Salvation Army warehouse tour. SA does their very best to recycle as much as possible. Less than 5% of donated textiles end up in landfills. The funds are then used to support Salvation Army rehabilitation centers.

The warehouse is incredibly organized considering the 1,000s of donations received on a daily basis. I spotted a gorgeous Anuschka hand painted bag that I'm looking forward to bidding on in the Salvation Army eBay store real soon.
