ARE THRIFT STORES ON THE RISE?Tags : thrifting .
You want how much for that? I've noticed some rather odd activity at my favorite places to thrift. I'm guessing it's happening elsewhere as I've overheard a few close friends mention it in their hometowns too. Even the Goodwill's here are pricing dresses starting at $9.99 which seems a little cuckoo to me. I can buy new at Target for less than this. I mean, people donate these things to thrift stores and then they price it so high, to what? Make tons of money. Really? Such a major turn off in my opinion. Sadly, Friday I noticed more of the same. I went out over lunch, and though I did manage to find a few treasures (which I'll share in my next post) the rest of it I had to pass on for now. So why do you think prices are becoming unruly, is buying vintage the next big thing? Please note that this post isn't to a be a downer about thrifting, because I love the hunt, but to show you that when I'm out looking it's not always butterflies and rainbows. Happy Sunday!
