Thrift Stores-Who Loves the Thrill of Thrifting?
Posted on October 09 2016
Why Is Bargain Hunting SO addictive?!
I know I am not the only one who has an addiction to thrift store shopping ;-) I know there are many people addicted to shopping in general...I am not one of those people, even though I AM a woman lol Shopping has never been my thing, unless I was out shopping for my son when he was young, or buying house decor or anything to do with gardening.
I started going to thrift stores to save money, and over the years it's become so addictive! Many times if I go to a non-thrift store and see the price of an item, I will think "My gosh, I can get that for under $5 at the thrift store!" The thought of paying full price when I don't have to is something that keeps me going back to the thrift stores.
On the other side of the coin, there is something about the thrill of the bargain hunt....I am sure every shopper experiences this at some point or another, but the feeling is a bit different when you are in a thrift store, or garage sale and you are searching for a specific item. You know your odds of finding that certain type of earrings or shoes, or purse are less because items are limited. So I suppose that is what makes it so exciting! At other times, when looking through clothes, it can be exhausting! You know what I mean...checking for rips, stains, going through sizes, etc...very time consuming, so you need LOTS of time when dealing with clothes.
I have run across others who love it just as much as I do, so I know I am not alone! And because I love to thrill and believe in a good bargain, I have incorporated my addiction into my store :-) Perhaps so I have yet another excuse to go back...
