  • My mom is queen of the "wazure" (was yours) shops! :) She rarely shops anywhere else, and completely outfitted my nice and nephew with school clothes for like $75.

  • My MIL loves to shop thrift stores also. That's where we got much of my DH's dressier clothes from his internship as a high school ag teacher. He is teaching small engines and welding, so we thought that was the best place to get khakis and button up shirts, that way if he ruined them we didn't pay full department store price for them.

  • I love going to them. I always find neat things. My mom one time found some old silver and took it home and shined it up. She looked it up online and found they were collectors items and antiques worth a ton of money. I think she paid like $2 for them. A month or so back she sent my son a brand new with the tags on an official Carolina Panthers jacket. He was thrilled.

  • I love them! Books are my passion and our local thrift shop sells them 12 books for $1.00! Last time we were in there we got a brand new math workbook ($27.00 retail), three Stephen King hardbacks, a very cute name brand jacket for my younger daughter, and two pairs of jeans for my older daughter - and spent less than $5!

  • They are my best friends!!!!! lol I have found all kinds of brand new stuff...a lot with the origional tags still on them!! I always get things for the house there....i.e. nick nacks, pictures, etc... Oh & I have an obsession with older, odd, off the wall broaches & pins, so that's the best place to find those :)
