Just a head’s up to Seattle area thrift stores… if you want to be a retailer… please get rid of the moniker ‘thrift‘. The pricing reflects otherwise, as well as the over abundance of ‘cheaply purchased new items from China‘, used as filler throughout a majority of these ‘thrift‘ stores. There are dollar stores with that same product and cheaper because it is sold for a dollar… hmm?
Antique stores in the Puget Sound provide the best deals of durable goods and quality merchandise at unbeatable prices encompassing all eras. Yesterday, I was looking for a Disney VHS recording of Cinderella which is currently in the vault and not to be re-released until next fall. However, I found just what I needed at an antique store in pristine condition for $ 3 for my granddaughter.
Thrift stores are turning either shiftless or shifty because during these economic times, these same stores believe that they can. Shame on them!
