Thrift Shop ‘Til You Drop


There was a little thrift shop around my university, so sometimes after my internship or class  I would run over there to look for diamonds in the rough. When I told Rachel I was at the thrift store she was like, “WHAT?! We aren’t poor!” She was born in a very poor district of the Philippines and always had hand-me-downs.

So I said, “We’re in a recession, lady! Plus they have nicer clothes than I’m wearing right now!” They’ve got brand-name stuff now, ya know.

Anyway, clothing aside…thrift stores have odds and ends you wouldn’t expect…

I had to wipe them down and cover-up a few scratches with a wood-furniture marker, but for $6 bucks you can’t go wrong.
