Thrift store are getting to be more expensive. I went to one the other day, and there were items marked $50 and $70.
I am a college student, and I try to find deals without having to spend a lot of money that I do not have.
When I was a kid my parents would get a desk or a piece of funiture for less than $25, but now those items can go as high as $300. It's really sad!
I'm fine to go without stuff if I can't find it for the right price, but there are people out there with kids that might have to go without a coat or a bed, because the thrift stores are rasing their prices too high for the lower income families to be able to afford.
The Goodwill stores now offer their items not only to the community, but to people in other countries. They have their own website now called shopgoodwill.com. They list the better items, and even some of the not so better items on there as auctions. The website states that they will ship international too.
