Saturday Spotlight: Herndon Goodwill Store

The DCGF’s Take: I took my first visit to this amazing hidden gem back on the Autumn Goodwill Shopping Bus Tour with Modage Style. I don’t get over to Herndon often, dear readers, but I’ll tell you I will never pass through again without stopping into this store. Although it’s not a huge place, it […]
