If you do you are saving more money than shopping at Walmart and helping your community immensely.
I don't shop in charity shops. Why shop there and get a t shirt for $10 when I can go to Target and get the exact same shirt for half price?
Charities want you to pay an arm and a leg for clothing and items that should be binned.
I shop at a local thrift store that raises money for the blind...
... it's like a giant yard sale...
... where you can get used items for about one-third or less than what they sold for new...
... so yes I save money and if it don't work when I get it home...
... I can bring it back for an in-store credit for something else...
... beats Walmart's pants on sale half-off in aisle six.
Bought my dining room dinette set at a St. Vincent De Pauls. Easily a $1500 set new, and in perfect shape, for FIFTY BUCKS! Large ornate table with extra leaf and six matching padded chairs.
I see your "charity stores" down there have it backwards from the US, At least in Tennesseee. We have so many donations that it has put third world economies at jeopardy from dumping. Thrift stores are cheap as hell here.
ACB is a great store.
There is at least one well stocked Goodwill store in every town down here inbCentral FLA.
We patronize them fairly regularly.
Yes i do....usually goodwill or salvation army. I love it! I hate shopping, and i hate spending money on clothes, shoes, etc and if i can get a shirt for $2 I'm happy! I don't care if something is brand new, as long as it looks nice.....
i shop at a salvation army store ...its on the way to boone so its easy for me to go to. both my recliners are from there....a lot of work shirts etc...cat beds...you would be amazed what the rich in this area...discard for no reason
I used to buy a lot of my stuff at Sal's
I think my first apartment was completely stocked and furnished by thrift stores
