One of the things I find most surprising about thrift shopping in Hawaii is how much winter wear these people have. The Goodwill I go to is littered with sweaters, hoodies, and jackets that I just can’t possibly imagine people at this latitude wearing. But alas, I buy and sell a ton of cold weather gear.
I started taking flipping seriously during the spring months and began to hone my craft during the summer. While my strategy has always been to get items in and out as quickly as possible, even if they don’t sell for the most money possible, I quickly found myself developing an impressive hoodie collection that a New England native like myself would envy.
I had forgotten about seasonality.
