Introduction: Find the Things You Are Looking for at the Thrift Store!
Many ,many times i have wanted to get a new this or a better that. In my slide show here i have a few pictures of things that ive found at the thrift store. Each time i would go and find something that was really cool or better than the one i had been previously using. Going to the thrift store is like going to the biggest garage sale in town(at least the thrift stores i go to are that big). You really just have to go until you find what you are looking for. There are a few tricks to finding a good store. Big cities have better thrift stores because people move to the cities and they bring more than they can store so they donate. Also depending on what you are looking for you can make a better decision on where to go. If you want old army clothes then go to a place that is near a military base. If you want old vinyl lp's then go to where our elders go to live out their retirement years. Thrift stores arent just for old clothes. I think people are put off by the thought of thrift stores because they have it in their minds that only poor people shop there or they just think that if you dont pay a ton of money for what ever then its bad. To those people i say get off your high horse. You are a close minded idiot if you think that. Somebody that did think like that bought that 100 dollar coffee mug in the first place and thats how it ended up here in your local thrift store. I have found some really cool stuff that was just so cheap. I always feel good when i find something that i was looking for. Like when you play with legos and you find that piece that you've been looking for for the last 3 hours while watching duck tales. So get out there and feel the thrill of the hunt! And for those of you who are not convinced, fine, more for me!
