I love going to thrift stores! I can remember a time when my mom would go to thrift stores for hours and I would think she was crazy and now I proudly walk in those same shoes. Sometimes they are even thrifted shoes at that! I don't have as much time to thrift store shop and many times squeeze it into my lunch hour. You do have to be careful though cause many times you can come home with items that you don't need. Like a globe....Sure didn't need it, but boy do I like the way it looks on the desk...and for only $5!
