Is it just me, or are thrift shops' selections becoming smaller and their prices going up?
Thrift shops are a great place for wool sweaters, which I like to use for repurposing and felting projects. And I have to say that Savers' used wool sweaters for $8... what is the dealio? They are used sweaters! I could see $5, tops. You can find nice wool sweaters at most thrift stores them for $2-$3. So no way I'm buying them at Savers.
Thrift shops are awesome for books. As a teacher, I find/found so many books at a great discount, and I recommend this! Also jewelry, but it's pretty hard to find vintage jewelry at a thrift store. Most of the jewelry is depressing 90s stuff. You can sometimes get lucky with games, though. I love vintage games!
