Saturday Spotlight: Arlington Goodwill on Columbia Pike

The DCGF’s Take:

The Columbia Pike Goodwill in Arlington, VA is undeniably my favorite store of Goodwill of Greater Washington’s. While on the smaller side in comparison to others I will be featuring, this store never comes up short on seriously amazing finds. This store is a shoe lover’s paradise, dear readers. Back in my days of Guest Posting on this very blog, I did a write up about my tips for shoe shopping on budget – you might remember this picture. I would estimate that 70% of my Goodwill shoe collection has come from this store alone.

Along with shoes, this store is a haven for the dress lovers as well. Essentially, the entire right wall of the store is reserved for dresses and suits. I just stopped in last week and found some incredible dresses. Black and blue striped Anna Sui for Anthropologie (retail $100++), green Morgan McFetters (retail $70+) and Ralph Lauren heels (retail $100++). I paid just $8.98 for the dresses and $14 for the shoes!

Columbia Pike is a busy store, fashionistas! I think word has gotten out that this place is packed with designers pieces for incredible prices. Among the many brands I regularly see like J. Crew, Banana Republic, Loft, The Limited, Boden, Ecote, BDG, Joe’s, J Brand – I have also often spotted designers like Michael Kors, Kate Spade, Lacoste, Tahari, Marc Jacobs, DKNY, Alice & Olivia, DVF and Piazza Siempone! In recent months, the parking has really improved after construction in surrounding areas has been completed, so that means it is time for you to pay this store a visit. Don’t forget to head downstairs where you will find an incredible selection of books. When I say incredible selection – I mean like floor to ceiling shelves! You’ll find furniture down there too. That’s right, Columbia Pike is two amazing stories of Goodwill gems!

This store is right on the W&OD trail–I would love to see some bike parking added. I would ride there all the time.

Katie, I am glad you like the Columbia Pike store as well! I have forwarded your suggestion to our corporate headquarters. I think that is a great idea, too!
