What is one thing you would NEVER buy used that you have actually seen in a thrift store?

I think probably a mattress. They're impossible to clean and you never know what is on (Or in) them! Not judging those that do though lol, this is just for fun.

  • I have to agree w/ the mattress, but I was thinking shoes. I see them at thrift stores, and I just can't bring myself to be okay w/ it. I think feet in general are kind of gross. Undergarments too. I have only seen that once and they were supposedly new, but idk....

  • Panties and bras... It's so nasty to see that they have them at thrift stores. I could understand someone buying the wrong size, it still being in the original package, then giving it to the thrift store to sell.... but used ones, GROSS!!!!

  • Panties all the way! Yuck.... Probably not a matress either. Who knows who owned stuff like that before they sent it to the thrift store.
