    I'll admit I am a thrift store junkie and DAV and goodwill are my drug. Much of my edc is thrift store items. Almost all of my clothes and accessories are thrift store bought as well. Just something about nice stuff for 1/5 or less of the cost of new.

    I had some store credit at the consignment store, walked out with Cole Hann Resort Penny Loafers in light brown. I guess I am over the bedroom slipper look. Nice summer shoe.

    I love thrift stores. In the last couple of months I have found two north face backpacks; brooks brothers, columbia, 5.11, ll bean and a couple of masters golf shirts; polo, columbia, mountain khaki and izod pants and shorts and a sewing machine. My wife and daughters want to put me on Goowill restriction. Haha

    I like thrift stores. My favorite pair of jeans and shorts came from one, can't beat, less than $10 between the two with proceeds going to charity.

    My father is really good at reselling thrift store or junk pick-ups. some things like furniture he had to put work into but then would make a large profit off. As a kid I hated it because he would tell me he would take me somewhere but on the way he would stop at all the thrift stores and I thought it was embarrassing. Now I admire what he was able to do.

    Fortunately there's a Goodwill less than a mile from my house in our military community. So there's ALWAYS lots of stuff being donated to Goodwill due to people having to move. There's usually plenty of new or nearly new goods in there. I've scored lots of good stuff there.

    Truth said. My dad was a wise hard working man who put family first every day of his life. I was amazed by him more and more as I grew older and realized how much he knew. I'll never fill those shoes but I will always try.

    This is the third time I have walked in and found a better jacket than the one I have. This is a Navy Blazer, Munsingwear, 38-S. shrinking is no fun.

    I was looking at a tan Cashmere cardigan sweater for the last week. The salesman told me I had $30 in credit, so I got it. Looks great with all my jackets. Wearing it today to a Funeral in the cool weather here.
