Do you like shopping at Thrift Stores?

Thrift stores like Goodwill ARC plus the Salvation Army and more etc.

I have a little in the past, but not so much recently. I'm mostly trying to reduce junk in my life these days.

I browse them occasionally, mainly for used books.

I have shopped at Thrift stores.

One man's throw away, can be another man's treasure.

Yes I love Thrift Store shopping when I lived in Denver I would shop at Goodwill all the time so much fun looking at what they have and also there was a Thrift Store in Dillon Colorado I liked a lot

Yeah but like garage sales more. Thrift sales are okay but rarely find clothes that fit nor much else I really like. I like large community garage sales but don't go as nuts as I used to. Now look for necessities more than just fun trinkets.

Oh yes I do. I buy most of my clothes at thrift stores.

Sometimes, with the right company. I like it with my sister, my late cousin... But I don't go alone.

Ditto! In fact, I'm having a garage sale this weekend to get rid of all the stuff I accumulated in the past years. Seemed like it was so important to me but now; it's just more work dusting...

I have occasionally, when costumes were needed for a school play.
It was a great place to get cheap stage cloths.
One could outfit a whole cast for very little.

I haven't had a garage sale. I have given some stuff away, but mostly I trash it. Most of it just has no value to me.

Very occasionally.

Not any more; I used to like to visit thrift stores to buy cassettes and VHS videos for just a few pence; but this was mainly in the pre-internet era. Occasionally I'll seek out a book bargain. I'll never prefer anything to the feel of a good paperback book read in bed last thing at night.

Not really. I don't "like" shopping anywhere. I have usual places I go to and get what I need and get out. I hate that Costco rearranges the location of things in the store. One week an item is in one place and the following week I have to hunt for it.
I never go in a thrift store or dollar store. Used to though years ago when I liked to hunt for antique furniture.

We're doing it because my sister is moving back to Vancouver and doesn't want to pay to ship her things again so I'm taking advantage of it to sell some of my collectibles like Indiana Glass wear, depression glass and etc. Don't need it...

I stick my head in sometimes. Don't remember the last time that I bought anything though.

They are good for finding relics. Old, used stuff you haven't seen since you were 4. You can also sometimes find decent vinyl albums. At SPCA thrift store you can visit with the kittens. smiley:::grin

Yes. Love it. Haven't been in quite a while, I have most everything I need.

Yes, but around here it seems the prices are going up to where its not worth going. I was in search of curtain rods. the cheapest I could find cost twice as much as they did at Walmart.

I love looking for treasures.

I get most my clothes from Goodwill. New clothes now are too flimsy and cheap. I get my jeans on eBay. I like one style so it is easy Levis mid rise skinny. Also I work at an animal shelter and dogs are rough on clothes and various stains.
