Definitely yes.

I have, for example, a Vittorio leather purse in pear green... that I got with the original tags on, for $25.

I'm a total fan of thrift shopping!

I am not above shopping at them. i think they are great in theory. but I'm quite picky about fit for my clothes and I prefer to dress a little nicer than other people who live around here, so I never find anything I like for myself clothes-wise. So I don't even bother looking for me.

I do get the majority of DS's clothes at garage sales and resale shops though.

Definitely yes! I've scored amazing things at thrift stores. My best was a brand new, donated from the store...$150 accent chair from Target. I paid $25 for it..and its still available in stores!

 Yes my nephew works at this great place (Shanti second chance) where all clothing is 2 bucks. I got a real coach purse for 2 dollars. I get designer jeans or 2 bucks as well. this store is mostly adult clothing so not too much for my kids there.
