Thrifting here is bad. Really bad!
I had today off and went to so many thrift stores that I lost count.
They suck here.
I mean S to the U to the CK.
Whoever is doing the pricing is on some crazy pills and I wish I had taken a camera to show you the insane pricing on some of the stuff that I was looking at.
$189.99 for a funky painting. (I flipped it over. Nope. Not a Picasso)
$599.99 for a fabric wall hanging thing.
YES...I just said $599.99...for a fabric wall hanging....IN A THRIFT STORE!
I'm no art follower....but I am pretty sure that if someone gave it to the thrift store, FOR FREE, then the damn thing sure as hell is not worth $599.99.
Am I right?
Yes I am!
It pisses me off quite frankly.
It's a thrift store.
They got the stuff for free.
People who are poor, like ME, shop there.
Goodwill, Salvation Army, ARC Thrift Store, King Thrift Store, I hate you all!
All I want to do is find objects for my home that no one else has. I am tired of Ross, TJ Maxx, and Home Goods. I want something unique. Something I can hold up and say, "Check this awesome thing out. I got it for $3.00 at a Thrift Store".
I'm gonna have a drink now!
