Thrift shops are booming...my wife scores tons of designer label clothing (with tags still on) ‘donated’ by jaded/bored wives of wealthy democrats traveling to their vacation homes in Red Hampshire. $50, $75, $100 (and more) sweaters, blouses, pants, suits, blazers...all for a buck or two. Sweet.
That is SWEET! She has got to feel great wearing some expensive/good looking outfit knowing she only paid a few bucks. (she must be petite... usually I find expensive items like that is uber small sizes. .... sigh)
They certainly are. My wife has been shopping at thrift stores for many years and the expensive clothes she brings home are amazing. She wears them for a while and if she becomes tired of them or they become too big she donates them back and finds something new. I have a heck of a time getting her to buy new some of the things she can’t find like pants. She grew up dirt poor with one or two outfits at any one time. She appreciates saving and always has through the 40 years we’ve been married.
