  • Depends on the area where you live and the quality of the store. I have found brand-new name brand items there with the tags still on them.

  • YES Absolutely! I love thrift stores, when I have the time. Many of my finds, I have then turned around and sold on eBay... doubling my price, even tripling it! I buy clothing for the grandkids as well. I've been garage saling and thrift store shopping since I was knee high to a grass hopper!

  • I like to think of thrift stores as a 'treasure hunt' as I never know what I will find.... sometimes I find good things (like a new name brand purse for $2.00) and sometimes I don't see anything that really catches my eye.
