Prices are lower at regular stores during end of season clearance sales.

Used to be a good place to go for cheap seasonal costumes and decoration 10 years ago. But now it's too expensive.

NO WORDS. Truly speechless

Your post says so much more than you ever imagined.

Clearly a good reason WHY I will not set foot in the place
I mean this was a good 15 years ago... So I'm sure it has changed much since then...

Once upon a time...

Thrift shops were filled with usable items that the "better off" handed off cause they no longer needed them (a form of pay it forward / pass it on). There was no "benefit" (money) to the gifter, just the feeling that they had done ok in life, and was sharing their over abundance "of stuff"

Now it seems EVERYONE wants in on the action.

Something for nothing (out of the goodness of one's heart) has become a money making venture....
It's about pickers, ebay/kijiji/Craigslist, "Storage Wars", making money without paying income tax... And, the world of modern day hunter-gatherer resellers is not limited to used items.

VV... My gitch is fine and dandy, thank you very much... As I said before... I threw out the nasty one right away anyways... The one's that I did keep I bleached them over twice for good measure. They were perfectly fine... REALLY.

Went to buy an outfit for my daughter for the upcoming Mud Hero. Used George brand shorts were $6.95. I don't spend that much when they are new from Walmart. I won't be back

I think u need an intervention. Unless u r homesteading in Edmonton, there's no reason why u can't fork out money on brand new underwear, unless u r the type who has no qualms using the services of street prostitutes.

I still check out Value Village to see if I can score on some old Pentium-era (90s-2000s) desktops. Definitely worth it for just $10-15.

Why would you say that? Those are worthless.
