I think my view of thrifting has always been a little skewed. Mostly because the clothing places I visited seemed dirty, junky, and unorganized. It seemed like the clothes were in really bad shape, so I stopped going to resale or thrift shops. I really only shopped for furniture and knick knacks and books, sheet music, etc.
Well I decided that maybe, just maybe, my large new city would have a little higher quality clothing places. I was right. We went to about four places, there was a goodwill by the pound, that was a little lower quality, but I did get a skirt, a random polka dot shirt and a leather jacket. I am kinda a germaphobe, so I am doing laundry tomorrow.
I got a lot of great items. Even some non-clothing items, a yoga vhs, and...... a BING CROSBY Christmas cd, FOR THE WIN.
It was a good day, I found an amazing thrift store, the last one we went to, that had an amazing selection and the quality and cleanliness is amazing.
Is there an activity you gave up on that maybe you should give another chance?

Just thought I would update with a few fun facts since I have been doing a lot of research.
- Forbes ranked Jacksonville in the “Top 10 Best U.S. Cities to Find a Job.”
- National Geographic Adventure magazine ranked Jacksonville as one of the “Top Six Beach Towns” in the United States!
- AmericanStyle magazine ranked Jacksonville as one of its “Top 25 Arts Destinations.”!
- Jacksonville, the largest city in area in the continental United States, is a rapidly growing metropolitan city in Northeast Florida, with approximately 850,000 residents.
Tonight I officially ate at a new place in Jax, I am looking forward to all the new culinary experiences. Tonight was Moe's which is similar to a Qdoba or a Chipotle. The cool thing is you get free chips and salsa, unlimited!
