1. Pucker Up And Open Your Wallet!

    Thank You Free Online Photo Editor!

    LOOK, I know I haven’t done one of these babies in a while – and believe me, brother, it ain’t due to a lack of surprisingly expensive merchandise down at the local Goodwill.

    So my promise to you, dear readers, is to feature a new What’s Bueno Overpriced Goodwill item each and every single day week of the year right here on this blog.

    Oh, look, it’s more than two weeks nearly three weeks into January. Well, I’ve already screwed up this one. I guess there’s really no reason to waste my time trying to bother with the, what, 49 weeks left, is there?

    …And yet: How hard can it be? Between you and me, most of this “blog-writing” just ends up being me copying and pasting text from previous posts and then editing it ever so slightly. Shh!

    So with that in mind, let’s get started:

    Oh lookee here!  Lip gloss! Thrift store lip gloss!


    I’ll point out that you’re not just getting one novelty mouthal item, but two: Flip over the blister card [industry term] and you’ll see that your $5.99 also entitles you to this lip balm.

    They’re by the good folks at Lotta Luv Cosmetics – the first (and, presumably) only name in licensed candy and soda stocking stuffer glossenbalms, which is a word I think I just coined, though there’s the distinct possibility it’s borrowed from the Germans.


    And I guess it should be noted that you’ll also be receiving a generous length of packing tape binding these two items – the yin and yang of lip decor and emollient – together to ensure they are sold as a set – and potentially remain so forever and ever and ever.

    …On account of there’s no one who’s gonna pay six bucks for this.
