I’m a big fan of thrift stores and secondhand shops. There are so many treasures! I found a Calvin Klein dress for the price of, hold your breath, 12 bucks!!! It was in perfect condition, alas too small for my growing frame. (Shit I need a scale for Christmas.)
You know what the best thing about these stores are? Unlike Wal-Mart where everything is made dirt-cheap in China at the expense of underpaid, overworked people, at thrift stores you can find gems that are actually made in the USA! I can’t speak for the condition of those workers, but it doesn’t take a genius to figure out that they probably weren’t beaten with sticks if they needed to take a potty break.
Anyways, I wasn’t going to get all political here. Yesterday, Jamie and I found a plastic/disco christmas tree for two bucks and fifty cents! It was probably made in China, so forgive me, but we also found lots of pots and pans that were made right here on this sacred soil. I also found a wooden table, some old frames and some other awesome stuff that I will give away as Christmas presents. Hehe 😀
