A little run down........My MIL and FIL have butt loads of money. They got my three children clothes from the local thrift store that looked like they had been worn a thousand times, and a blanket for Christmas. Then they got me a cross. Which is kind of tacky but I put it up anyways.

My question is would you be upset about the hand be down gifts from the thrift store?

Its the thought that counts.  You could have gotten nothing.

It's supposed to be the thought. But if the clothes were basically unusable I'd be a little upset. However, they didn't get buttloads of money by spending it willy nilly.

No, since a bunch of my kids gifts came from the thrift store. Who cares if something is new or not if it does the same job.

Depends on the condition! My mom found a like-new armani bag at goodwill once. $1.
