Thrift Stores!

I was in a thrift store today checking it out & there was an item I really liked. I was looking at it & looking for a price tag then the women working there comes up to me & says its just a display not for sale. Um who does that in a thrift store plus dosent put a sign on it! I didnt end up buying anything bc it was the only thing I liked haha

Just thought I'd share & was curious if your local thrift stores have cute items that look like they are/would be for sale just as display items & you cant buy!? I simply found it annoying!

  • I'd say that means she plans on buying it and is saving it for herself.

  • The thrift stores around here have never done that. Everything is always for sale.

  • I would have asked for more details.. The only items I find like that usually are shelves and stands that they are really using to display items on. Maybe she did want it for herself????
