1 Review by GW

I sent a message to one of the stores asking where Goodwill gets all of their very pricey jewelry. I could not see so many rich people donating jewelry that cost thousands and thousands of dollars on a regular basis. I was told that they buy that expensive jewelry to auction off. I've attached a screen shot of the conversation) I'm sorry but if Goodwill is a nonprofit and they are supposed to be helping the less fortunate, they shouldn't have the money to be buying expensive jewelry.
And yes, the shipping is an absolute rip-off as are the handling fees. Not long ago I saw an Indian Head Penny, just one penny and the shipping on it was $11 plus a handling fee. I messaged them and told them they could put the penny in an envelope for the price of a stamp and mail it!! ( I didn't want to buy the penny, I just was curious how much they would charge to ship a penny).
FED EX is a RIP off! However when I have complained about shipping, just about every single store has replied that I can arrange for my own shipper, so theres that. The $0.01 shipping is a joke because every store jacks up the starting bid so high on the items so that they can cover the cost of shipping.
