10 things i have learned from thrift stores...

Thursday, April 29, 2010 |
1. the davinci code sold over 80 million copes. i bet half of them on now on the shelves of the d.i. for $2.
in hardback.
2. if you are looking for candlesticks, look in the toys. dont ask.
3. not even the geeky people play trivial prusuit anymore.
4. the entire population of utah must have had the movie 'titanic' on vhs. and now they all must have it on dvd because guess where the vhs's are?
5. it is cheaper and better for your health if you dont go to mcdonalds and just get your happy meal toys here.
6. the 'heart in the wood shelf' craze from the 1990s is FINALLY over. i dont even think d.i. wants them.
7. people buy alot of crap from late night infor-mericals and never open them.
8. if it looks old and it is painted-i bet it IS lead paint.
9.  put everything you think you might like in your cart RIGHT THEN! you can always take it out later. dont ever think it will be there while you look around for a bit.
10. people dont look at you weird if you go to the thrift store with 2 different shoes on. they just dont.
(actual photo taken january 24th after a trip to the midvale savers. no one noticed my shoes didnt match. id like to think my beauty blinded them from my faults.)
so-have any things you have learned you want to add?

To find one pair of decent fitting jeans you must take no less than 25 into the change room. I think once I tried on almost double that.

Did you happen to know my mother? Seriously she loved anything with the "as see on TV label" on it.

Great post! BTW - I'm your newest following via Follow Me Fridays.

Awesome tips! And completely true. I'm pretty sure my VHS copy of Titanic ended up on a DI shelf a few years ago...and is probably still there.
