    Default Thrift Shop Horrors

    I know most of you will like this livejournal community. Thrift shop horrors:
    Thrift Shop Horrors

    I don't go to many thrift shops, but I do go to Value Village frequently and have never had the pleasure of seeing such ugly shit.
    It's weird in that I don't know who to 'blame.' The people who produce some of the ugly shit, or the people that buy this ugly shit.
    Now I'm thinking that I should start going to thrift stores more often and hang around with my camera.

    Ooh, I love that blog.

    I used to collect ugly-couch pictures from Craigslist, until finally my husband made fun of me so much and for so long that I gave up that particular obsession.

    Here are some from today, not up to my old standards.

    This one conveniently comes with a cover:



    This one might look a bit better, but consider--it has a built-in stereo:



    Not a lumbar-support model:



    And the matching ottoman, good thing they have that available:



    Mad for plaid:



    This one looks oddly humanoid:



    Not a couch, but I just love the slumpiness:

    I took a pic in the thrift shop the other day I'm thinking of sending in. Now if only I could figure out how to get pics off my new cell phone (my old one was so much simpler!)

    I love thrift stores! There's one I go to all the time because they always have awesome clothes.

    They also sell lingerie... sometimes with period stains in them.
    And socks. Who wears second hand socks and underwear?

    My mother does most of her clothes shopping at Value Village (most of the clothes she's found still have the original tags on them!) but even she draws the line at second hand socks and underpants.


    Lola, Have you tried emailing the pics from your phone to one of your email accounts? It'll probably cost you in some data fees, but it might work.

    .

    Seriously. I'm on a tight budget, hence the secondhand clothes. My socks and underwear come from a budget store, it's not the best quality but at least it's new!

    I love thrift stores too. There are some really great finds that have come home with me over the years. It's also fun to play "name that utensil" in the household goods area or "find the ugliest sweater".

    I buy more than half my clothes at thrift stores. Well, the ones I don't sew
