I admit it I have a love for thrift stores. This started thanks to my parents who while we were growing up didn't have a whole lot of money so they would shop thrift stores all the time and take their kids with them. I found there was some great stuff to be found here. Yes, I know these stores deal with second hand merchandise but some great finds can be found in them. Over the years I found great clothes, quilts and other items. When I would mention to people who complemented me on a certain top I was wearing at the time that I got it from a Thrift Store some would have a less then favorable reaction, but I would just say hey it was new at one point and it still looks great. The only issue I have now there are no longer any Thrift Stores in my area, and we had three of them at one time. Now if I want such a bargain I got to yard sales, but I guess that would be another post wouldn't it.
