Your best thrift-store finds
Hey Scenesters, Hey Hey Scenesters!
Ok, I admit that the clothes I've found aren't as cheap as what others have posted. I'm a bit of a high-end fashion junkie, but that doesn't exactly mesh with the current economic crisis and, more specifcally, what's in my wallet.
Luckily, my town has what you could call a "selective thrift store" where they pick out the nicer/cooler stuff and, yes, sell it for a little bit more. I suppose you could make the analogy that this kind of thrift store is the Neiman-Marcus of thrift stores and that shopping at premium stores, buying premium cars, and having an overall sense that we deserve better than the standard fare is exactly what got us into this whole mess in the first place, but that'd be a little absurd, because I got every item you see for under 20 bucks!
It's really the best of both worlds. I still get my trendy clothing and I still save tons of money.
