  • I don't mind it. I wish I had more time to really look through everything, cause the really good finds are rare.

  • I don't think so I just think of it as a great place to find some great deals.

  • If someone can be degraded by shopping at Goodwill, they have definite problems. How can someone feel that their worth or position can be affected by where they shop. That is someone without self value.

  • I'm all for it. Why should good clothing be wasted if it can be used by someone else? From an environmental standpoint, it's a great way to recycle! :)

  • I love shopping at thrift stores. It takes some looking sometimes, but I love the fact that I can walk in with $20 and walk out with an armload of clothes.

  • It's not degrading to me, but after my father dropped off a whole truckload of my grandmother's things after she died, I feel like I am perusing through dead peoples' things. I've bought stuff for my kids there and found some real good deals though.

  • There's nothing wrong with shopping in stores like that but some people just think they are too good for secondhand clothes.
