Thrift Stores sell lots of wonderful items. You can get vintage t-shirts for next to nothing. As an original hipster (now reformed), I got to experience the thrill of vintage stores in NYC, before the chains started making clothes that looked vintage. Well… even with all the great things you can find thrifting, there are many, Many, MANY things you should never buy used. Allow me to present the used, in a box, but still used… Bum Pillow. Don’t buy it. But feel free to put it in your friend’s shopping cart when she isn’t looking.
