The Brookfield Goodwill store is also located on Route 7. This is a consistently a “good to excellent” resource for finding texts. I seldom leave without spending $30+ dollars on texts.
All Goodwill stores operate on a “color” coding. Price tags differ in color in order to move inventory, and 50% discounts are offered on items tagged with the color of the day.
I do pay attention to these tags when determining if I really need another copy of The Secret Life of Bees-Kidd (we have amassed over 60 copies to date). Spending .50 for a book is hard to pass up….but I may opt not to get another copy at $1.00 or $2.00.
The start of this year’s collection on July 1st at Brookfield included (all in new or excellent condition):
The Bedford Boys-Alex Kershaw
Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister-Macquire (a 2nd copy that day!)
Touching the Void-Joe Simpson
Night-Wiesel (4 copies!!)
Alex Rider: Stormbreaker– Horowitz
Love in the Time of Cholera-Marquez
A Thousand Splendid Sons-Housseni
I also got a few gently used copies of:
The Poisonwood Bible-Kingsolver (4 copies)
I also found several new copies of Romeo & Juliet, Hamlet, and a new paperback edition of Lord of the Flies-Golding.
I have been asked to find books by other departments at the school. I located an entire class set of Seabiscuit -Hilldebrand that was used by a teacher for a equine course this past year.
For the Agricultural Science Department, I found 2 copies (one hardcover and one paperback) of The Good, Good Pig-Sy Montgomery. For Psychology, I found Raising Cain-Kindlon.
Brookfield Goodwill Store also gets regular deliveries of used books. I stop in every two weeks, and I have never been disappointed.
