You either love it or hate it. You either see treasure in some one else’s trash or just plain old trash. I know people who wouldn’t set foot in the Thrift Shop and others who can’t wait to get out there “thrifting”. It is a perspective of sorts. It is all in the way you look at it. There is no right or wrong here. Just a way of seeing. Poking around in the shop of misfit items can whisk you back and away to another time, another place.. for free. ~ remember the rainy afternoons you spent jumping in puddles with your then two year old scallywag, who is now in a bat of an eyelash learning to drive?
Your older cousins wedding in the 70’s in the community hall where you got to dance with your Grampa or Dad on the tops of their shoes when you were just a grade schooler? Remember? Priceless…
You can even score a free Bible… if that is your sort of thing….. It can be a source of entertainment and enjoyment! True story….trust me… seriously, I think she rocks those glasses….don’t you? Very disco, Elton~ era…I should have bought them…. a vintage suit anyone?hmmm, probably could easily do without the creepy DNA hair on the shoulder though… uh…yep…definitely…~get your swag on with a groovy golf shirt….just think, instead of one 60 dollar unit, you could get like a whopping 24 golf shirts!!!
A vintage Barbie…? My Mom used to make me a Barbie cake when I was little, she even made one for my daughters 5th birthday. Get your today for only 2 bucks!
I love the thrift. The treasure hunt. The free memories. It is recycling at it’s finest and the money usually goes to helping out someone in your community. There isn’t anything wrong with saving the planet and helping others is there? I say cheers! Go pop some tags people. You could possibly score a vintage cashmere sweater, a new to you book, a candy dish like your Gramma’ had or just a free mind smile. Perhaps stay away from the used ginch though , just sayin’……..
