Shop-O-Mart

Ah, the thrift store. Nothing better than the smell of poor people in the morning. We took a trip to our local Thrift-O-Mart last weekend. The new one on Broadway is kind of swanky. Here’s a lovely pic of the window display…..



Stunning, I know. Simplistic, yet early Target divine.

They had five copies of The Santa Claus. Just in case you need one, let me know I’ll pick it up for you, since you won’t be caught dead in a thrift store. Here’s a pic of Saggy butt Elmo…….




Ewwwww!

So in these economic times, we are in a recession ya know. Do you Thrift Shop? Would you admit it on a blog? Every time we leave this type of establishment BFFCarl turns and states "Can I get a handy wipe? I that too much, just a warm moist towelette?"

Guilty and love them. Especially love All Girls Hockey League shirts. Or religious private school phys ed department finds.

We had a place here in TO that sold used unwashed clothes by-the-pound. That was a yellow-handed treat, let me tell you.
