I've bought pictures, books, and knick knacks. I love going to those stores because you never know what you will find. An sometimes there may be a name brand purse in there. I'd do anything to save a buck!

NO, I don't really shop at those, although I have heard of people coming across good deals there.

There are always good deals to be found. I used to go all the time and buy rare video games to resell. Recently I have been buying board games and some other collectibles.

I have stopped shopping at resale stores, because it only increases clutter in my house.

I go once in a while. I am always buying items I can use in my crafts and of course Christmas trays. I use them to put home made goodies on for Christmas and give as gifts. You know one mans trash is another mans treasure. But it is fun too look for items you can use and it is cheap.

If referring to places like Goodwill, I may have visited them a handful of times, but I never bought them. The only form of used type of items I buy at is garage sales or flea markets, but this doesn't include clothes. I don't foresee seeing myself shopping there anytime soon.

I've been donating a lot lately to the Salvation Army.  A couple weeks ago, I donated - among other things - a juicer, a popcorn popper, & a blender.  All were in great shape, I just got a bullet for Christmas & don't need the other stuff.   the popcorn popper hadn't been used in years.    I used to try to freecycle out my stuff, but I am spring cleaning & there is just too much stuff that needs to be rotated out at one time.    I would shop there if I had the time.  I would love to go through the book section, or to find a good coat.    My SIL had a store close to her that got stuff straight from retail stores.  She got tons of good stuff, brand new.   The best deal she got was a pair of abercrombie and fitch jeans for $2.00.

I do alot of resale shopping & have found great bargains like a bread machine for $2.99 (still like new in the box),  great prices on new clothes (still had the original store tags on them),   etc.   (Sometimes I go there though & don't find anything worth bringing home....I hate those trips.    :(   )

I enjoy shopping at Consignment Shops.  Especially the small ones where there is just one woman there and she gives me individual attention.  She can find great clothes that go together much quicker than me.

We moved so much that I am giving to the resale shops instead of buying from them...

Whenever I have shopped from resale stores I usually just buy books, dvds, cds, stuff like that. But I have found some good stuff and there are good deals to be found. I have bought some clothing from resale shops, i just make sure to throw it in the wash right away when i get home
