Does anyone else like thrift store shopping?

I like to go to thrift stores for myself. I don't know why. I love looking through the books, nic nacs, and furniture.
I like to get that good deal. So far I have been hunting for that perfect sewing machine table. Even if I have to paint it.

  • Love it ! I buy the majority of my clothes at 2nd hand stores. It is much cheaper and fun to find a designer label for a discounted price. :-)

  • I love it! My husband works at the Salvation Army so we get a discount on the already great prices! We go when we have a lot of time and pick through all the clothes and get a lot of our kids clothes there. Nothing wrong with that!

  • I really like it--there are several specialized thrift and consignment stores nearby that have neat things at great prices.

  • I love them too. Great deals and it's green shopping, how can you go wrong?

  • I'm a bit obsessed :) I find all of my clothes and all of my kid's clothes from Goodwill and Salvation Army, so much cheaper than going to the mall to find clothes.

  • I hate it because of the smell that tends to accompany the stores. However, I do buy the kids' play clothes from there.

  • I don't really buy clothes from there because I never find anything to fit me right. I have long arms.

  • I love looking at thrift stores! It is like a 'treasure hunt' because I never know what 'treasures' I will find, and at such great prices!! I usually look at purses, books, kids clothes, and sometimes household items or sometimes clothes for me. I have found many great bargains at the thrift stores.

  • I love it! I find the best clothes in them. I always look for good brands and items in good shape. I never seem to be disapointed. Not much can replace the feeling you get when you get a good deal!
