Shopgoodwill.com Online Auction Site

Collectors of art, antique toys, vintage clothes, pottery, glassware, jewelry, and more — shopgoodwill.com is a treasure trove of goodies gathered from all over the country.

Created in 1999 by Goodwill Industries of Orange County, California, shopgoodwill.com was the very first online auction site to be operated by a nonprofit organization and is now collectively shared by over 100 Goodwill organizations for the posting and sale of their donated items. Goodwill Industries of West Michigan joined as a seller in 2001.

To date, Goodwill Industries of West Michigan has sold and shipped items to all 50 states and Canada and boasts far-flung “regulars” from Long Island to Long Beach. Local or nearby purchasers of items posted by Goodwill of West Michigan can save on shipping by simply arranging to pick up their item from the shopgoodwill office located within Goodwill’s headquarters in Muskegon.

Like our regular brick-and-mortar stores, profits from shopgoodwill.com fund Goodwill’s education, training, and job placement programs for people with disabilities and other disadvantages.
