It’s hard to miss Christine “Shiny” Barrows at the Edmonds Goodwill.

She mostly works in the distribution room, but occasionally makes it out to floor to stock items.

The 34-year-old, originally from Texas and now living in Lynnwood, looks a little scary in her black leather and studs, but ask her for help and she’ll happily lead the way, with a smile on her face.

“I love working here,” she said.

Barrows has been at Goodwill two years, and is taking advantage of the nonprofit’s free language-learning courses.

When not studying Russian, she likes to listen to heavy-metal music and write science-fiction stories.
