I love thrift stores.  One man's trash is another's treasure!  I use to only give to the thrift stores but now I am the bargain seeker.
Have a wonderful day!

We tend to shop at goodwill alot. Both of the girls are on uniforms for school and the 10 year old is growing taller all the time and goes right through her pants. It's to expensive to go to a regular store when she is out of them in two to three months.

Hey I love Thrift stores. When you have a kid who plays and clothes get ruined like falling on ground or skidding of the knee. My lil guy plays and falls. I am glad that I did not spend 50 bucks for them jeans. Plus you get nice things and bargains that last till you donate it back(meaning the good items that are not ruined). At the Dollar store he was able to get a bubble blower. He loves bubbles. I am grateful for the people who donate. I just donated 4 bags of things the other day. I am sure someone will appreciate that.  :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

I prefer thrift stores for everything I and my family need with the exception of shoes, underwear, socks and hair stuff.  I bought a purse from a Goodwill about 3 years ago.  $1.99.  It recently started to fray and I trimmed all the loose ends.  The purse's handle broke when I did that.  So I'm out $2. It's time to update anyway.  My kids and I have spent hours at a time in thrift stores.  Particularly during Halloween.

I don't shop at them very often, but I find them very interesting and I've found some exceptional bargains.  I like shopping for things I didn't know I needed.

We actually got a "high-end" thrift shop that opened up recently... I say "high-end" because they advertise on the radio to bring in your used Abercrombie & Fitch, GAP, and other more expensive clothing boutiques. They are trying to target more of the teens and college-age population that while being very fashion conscious are also the ones that have very little disposable income. I keep wanting to go in and check it out, esp. to see how much of a discount they are selling their items for.

I have shopped at a Goodwill in the past, but that was more for getting a Halloween costume (I cross-dressed as a woman, so wanted to buy actual women's clothing without having to pay full price). Whenever I've actually looked for myself, however, the clothes seem to be not in the best shape. It may just be that guys are just a little more rough on their clothes and / or aren't as worried about their style so hold onto their clothing longer before donating it.

I do like going to thrift shops and *bleep* shops for other items besides clothing, however. I have greatly increased my CD collection by purchasing a bunch of used CDs from these places, usually for only $1 a piece. Just the other week, my jaw dropped by my good fortune, getting several CDs released within the last year: I got Justin Timberlake's 20/20, Christina Aguilera's Lotus, and Ke$ha's Warrior all for 50-cents (there was a sale for 10 CDs for $5)!
