If you've ever shopped in a really good thrift store, you know what a wonderful experience it can be. It's like a treasure hunt! You never know what you're going to find - unlike the stores at the mall, where everything always looks exactly like the stuff you saw there this time last year and exactly like the stuff they're selling in almost every other store there now. Shopping thrift stores, you might come across 3 pieces of vintage salmon-colored Lady Baltimore luggage for $15 or the little "Bless My Pretty Kitchen Lord" plaque exactly like the one that hung over the sink in your family's 1960's kitchen for 99¢ , or the fourth yellow-flowered tie-back that was missing from the set of curtains you bought last year in another state (they gave me that for free)! And it all costs next to nothing. And it's all recycled goods. And it's creating American jobs. And it usually supports a very worthy cause.
