My husband is a particular fan of thrift stores (looks for objects), he drags me with him whenever he gets the chance. More often than not, I am the beneficiary of the outing.
It does strike me as ironic that I have donated 6 bags of clothing and 3 bags of shoes to "Goodwill" specificly, in the last year, and buying as well.
What I am happy about is finding a full-length black silk Chinese dress with red cherry blossom pattern, for $6 ! No runs or snags, the side slits have a little fraying which is easily repaired with a serger and the replacement of the edging.
Good luck with your thrift hunt !
