Find your ugly Christmas sweater at Goodwill

There’s nothing like an ugly Christmas sweater to show off your flair for fun and make you forgo your fashion sense.

Adorned with lavish landscapes, rosy-cheeked Santas and reindeer, glistening snowmen, decorated Christmas trees, smiling gingerbread, poinsettias and presents and topped with tinsel, bows, jingle bells and pom-poms, these thrift store sweaters are garish, no doubt, but they most definitely are hip and cool.

They also have become the theme of office parties and contests, family gatherings and neighborhood round-robins so make sure you aren’t left out in the cold. No one needs a Grinch in the midst who can’t get into the spirit of the season.

Christmas sweaters are an annual tradition and a challenge — a challenge to outdo family and friends and even top the one you wore the previous season.

That’s where Goodwill comes in.

Goodwill is in the business of ugly Christmas sweaters, and each of our thrift stores has its own unique collection of ones to pick from, with prices starting at $9.99. You can also layer on the tackiness with a seasonal turtleneck, which start at $4.99. Complete your look with some flashy jewelry and you’ll be turning heads for sure!

While some companies have jumped on this kitschy bandwagon and now make it their business to produce new tacky numbers, at Goodwill you will find secondhand gems the way your Aunt Gladys intended that also are better for the environment. That’s a win-win!
