I shopped three thrift stores today. Got some great clothes for my granddaughter. Paperback books are another good find.

Thrifts are my first choice for clothes.
I like a big variety,like well made stuff but am pretty careless about what I have on when I do any spur of the moment things that might cause stains and just generally prefer to spend money on other things.
They're also great when the stores are all carrying whatever the latest 'fads' are that don't suit me.

The worst part about a thrift store is that you just feel obligated to buy SOMETHING! We have a charity thrift store between work and home. I end up going in there at least once a week to get whatever 'stuff' I can for around $10-$15. I've gotten some really cool things too.

I love the thrill of thrift store shopping. I love to hunt for books, music, movies, and all kinds of treasures. There is a thrift store in my area that seems to be stocked by more affluent people. I have found books and movies there that are still on the top selling lists. I have found unopened cds there for $1, new movies for $2, and wonderful hardback books for $2-4. I love that place!

If I go into a Thrift Store and touch anything, I always feel contaminated.

If I just handle stuff, hand sanitizer is enough, but if I brush up against a rack full of clothes, I feel like I need a shower.
