I have my limits

I am an avid thrift-store junkie.  

There's nothing I love more than getting a bargain.  Second-hand stores get a bad rap -- and most of it is undeserved.  Sure you run into a lot of granny's basement "treasures" smelling faintly of kitty litter, but you also find a lot of NEW merchandise, tags still attached. 

I go thrifting almost every weekend. It's all about keeping an open mind and being patient.  Sometimes I find all kinds of cool things to add to the household decor or my wardrobe and sometimes I return empty handed.

One day recently, I ran smack-dab into a boundary I never knew existed. I discovered that I have limits, that there are some things that I absolutely positively cannot buy at a thrift store.  

And here is a prime example:

I don't wanna know where these came from or who wound up purchasing them.  I'm going to keep purchasing my feminine hygiene products at the grocery store, thank you very much.

LOL. And all you can do is laugh. :-)

That's disturbing...

OMG! I definitely do the thrift-shop rounds. I absolutely will not buy underwear or swimsuits.

Glenn and I love thrift shopping too and there's a fantastic recycled clothing store we frequent. I am a little creeped out that we need to take antihistamines before entering it though.... but the stuff we find is worth it!
