Treasure Hunting at Goodwill: A $4.99 Surprise Find and a Collector's Paradise!
Ah, the joy of a Goodwill find. You never know what you might find in our retail stores, and that’s part of the fun of shopping at Goodwill! Our production techs work each day to sort and identify quality items our shoppers are looking for.
It’s not just clothing and housewares. Goodwill is a treasure trove for collectors, hobbyists, and enthusiasts of all kinds, whether you are a gamer, comic book reader, sports fan or more!
I’ve recently returned to a gaming hobby, ordering parts and building my own PC back in 2020. The hobby started back in third grade, when my reward for straight-A's on my report card was my very own Gameboy SP (in blue, my favorite color, no less!). One of my favorite games was Harvest Moon, and I would sneak in one more nighttime round of caring for my chickens and cows under the covers before my mom inevitably caught onto my charade.
Imagine the nostalgic rush when I finally caught up to the Stardew Valley hype train in my 20’s, after a long hiatus from gaming. Stardew scratched that “Harvest Moon” itch that I didn’t know still existed. But after a long day at work, it was the perfect way to unwind while still using some brain waves with some light strategy.
And that’s exactly why one Goodwill Find caught my eye online recently.
Yes, that is the now out-of-stock, limited edition Stardew Valley Board game! It goes for prices of at least $100 with secondhand sellers online. But this lucky Reddit user found it at a Goodwill retail store (with all the pieces!) for $4.99. The comment thread abounds with other joyful gamers rejoicing in this victory, and frankly some awesome puns.
