You never know what you're going to find at the local Goodwill!
In the Fort Worth area alone, we collect more than 20 million pounds of donations every year. From those donations, we've seen some pretty interesting things! Here is a sampling of some of our favorites. Enjoy browsing through this "rogue gallery" of sorts, and don't forget to support Goodwill through your own tax-deductible donation today!
This unusual larger-than-life character seems to look at you wherever you are in the room!
This donated fertility god leaves nothing to the imagination!
The donor of this men's jacket must have forgotten that they left $5,000 cash in the pocket! Lucky for them, Goodwill's sorters are honest and turned in the cash. When the donor realized their mistake, the money was returned and the sorter was rewarded for their honesty.
Poor Grandma! Her ashes almost ended up for sale at the Goodwill Store!
When this suitcase was donated at an area Goodwill Store, the sorter opened it and quickly passed out! The leg turned out to be artificial, but still VERY realistic!
Goodwill appreciates all donations. But please, don't donate a live grenade! This donation had to be disarmed by professionals.
This real moose head was donated recently. Poor Bullwinkle!
Fluffy's remains - in a decorated box - made their way to Goodwill. We have no words.
Joan Collins just called...she wants her dress back!
Chew on this...these teeth were donated with a box of jewelry. At least we're smiling about this donation!
More teeth! Wonder what this donor is chewing on now?
Somebody's souvenir shark.
Would you bring this pierced dude home to meet mom?
Goodwill accepts both new and used items. Hopefully, this donation is NOT used!!!
This vintage drink dispenser leaves nothing to the imagination. We're not sure why you would want to drink from this!
Part of a VERY large donation of numerous anatomically-correct medical dummies.
These real alligator heads certainly look happy to call Goodwill their new home!
A pig fetus in a bottle. "Why?" we ask!
Someone obviously left their Journey record collection in the hot car for too long!
We have no idea what this one is, but it's not something you see everyday!
This poor little fella was left with donations outside our Haltom City Store location. We're pleased to report that he's found a new loving home!
An actual human skull that has been cut into pieces and labled for medical research. He even came with his own carrying case!
These legs were made for walking, and that's just what they'll do. One of these days these legs will sell to a Goodwill shopper like you!
A, um, "designer" handbag, anyone? Anyone?
Saturday Night Fever?
Here's a lovely suit, tags still attached. Imagine that!
Wednesday Adams, thank you for your donation!
A fox stole, complete with feet, eyeballs, tail...well, you get the picture!!!
Just in case you're curious about where to poke that needle, here you go...
A real bat entombed in resin.
The one-and-only "Rejuvenique" facial massager/stimulator. Anyone care to give it a try?
We lovingly call this donation the "diorama of death". There are four real birds in this bad boy!

Bet you can't find a lamp like this at Pottery Barn!
