I love Thrift Stores.
Okay, let's forget that they smell. Let's forget that the electronics are worthless, half the clothes really worn and a quarter of them truly terrifying, and the fact that the shoes either don't fit or don't match.
Really, let's forget all of that.
Because where else can you find a truly fantastic skirt for $3 that anywhere else would cost you ten times that much (at least)?
Where else can you find DVDs for $2?
Where else can you find books for $.15?
Or Teacups for $.99?
Well, okay, garage sales and clearance and discount stores... maybe...
But really. Thrift stores can be great fun. And much cheaper than going shopping at Target or the Mall.
Plus, you know, they have everything. And it's all interesting. And you can laugh at the really hideous stuff and maybe wear strong lotion so you don't notice the smell.
Oh and always, ALWAYS bring a friend. Because everything is an adventure when someone you love shares it with you.
So. What was the most awesome (or 5 most awesome) thing(s) you ever got at a Thrift Store?
