Have you been to the Goodwill in West Olympia? Their book section looks like a mini bookstore! The books are organized by type and there’s a bestsellers section. There are many well-known and new titles to choose from. There are even chairs for leisurely browsing. The staff member working in the section was making book recommendations and offered assistance. It really had such a great vibe. Prices vary but good deals abound.
They also carry DVDs, CDs, VHS tapes and vinyl.
Overall the store is well organized and clean and they sell a lot of new items in addition to the second-hand finds. I saw lots of colorful vases and fun decorative items. I almost left the store with a pair of carved palm tree lamps. (I was good!) If you have stayed away from thrift stores in the past, this one might change your mind.
Location: 400 Cooper Point Rd SW, Olympia, WA 98502, (360) 956-0669

Donating and buying used is a great way to reuse, reduce, recycle. Stay green and happy reading!
It rained today and it made me happy. My 100 or so plants needed the rain. I want them to have their best chance. A little blustery–boo–but it’s no nor’easter! We have low 50s. A reason to be grateful.
