I have a secret; I’m not a fan of shopping. That is, I’m not a fan of the kind of shopping where you go to a generic mall and spend hours hoofing it through antiseptic stores with muzac streaming from the speakers.
I do, however, love shopping at thrift stores. It’s a totally different experience. You never know what you’re going to get and everything is more compact and concentrated. Plus, I always feel better about recycling clothes this way instead of consuming new stuff that ends up getting taken to the thrift store a couple of years later anyway.
And I’m totally not picky about the thrift store. It doesn’t have to be a fancy, hipster store. I’m perfectly happy with Goodwill or the Salvation Army.
Case in point, Rebekah and I made a trip to our local Salvation Amry today and totally cleaned up for Rebekah. This is what we got for $50;
So, this week, thrift stores are what I love!
