Title: Thrift store scores
Post by: vegan*shawn on January 24, 2009, 04:03:53 PM
Today I scored a brand new pair of Hi Top red keds (look like Chuck Taylor) and two Willie Nelson albums. My wife got a nice canvas laundry hamper.

Anyone else fan of thrift stores or garage sale shopping?

Yeah mon, I love rootin around for all the little random treasures you can find (bought some brand new hi-tek boots for six bucks and a duke ellington record for a dollar last time) plus you can get cheap clothes and pants to cut up and sew little bags and things. Which reminds me, anybody need a bag sewn for their pipe or bong or whatevs or a board bag for travelling with trucks and wheels on the bottom for easy transportation, let me know. I need $ so bad!!

hahaha!

In England we call them Charity shops, because they are al run by charities like Oxfam, British Heart Foundation, Marie Curie Cancer Care etc and a percentage of what you spend goes directly to those charities.
I spend hours and hours looking through the cassette tapes. Its my favorite hobby after doing stinking frontside rocks. I've also bought some utterly disgusting shirts over the years as well as Roxy Music's first album on mint vinyl, loads of classical music and some ridiculous sci-fi novels. I may have to scan in the front covers of some of the best ones. Some trendy fuck-head will doubtless come over this one called "Zardoz". Oh and I frame all my artwork in the frames of abysmal old shitstain paintings.
From the sound of this thread, the Canadian and American "thrift stores" have a lot more variety than we get over here, although a quick glance around my room reminds me of the foot tall three stick silver plated candelabra I bought this year. Also my girlfriend's got a fucking amazing plant pot shaped like the head of an Asian boy with a turban on. Its twice the size of her own head, porcelain and his face is crudely painted shiny pitch black. Any flowers growing out of that thing look so rad I could cum.

same... T-Shirt that said, "If The Fetus You Saved Turned Out To Be A Homosexual, Would You Fight For Its Rights?" ($1.50)
And, then there was like a whole box of tie-dye T-Shirts for $0.10 per each one. But, I guess I didn't get any because they were used. I don't really mind getting used stuff like video games and stuff like that, but not clothes. I guess it's because my mom never let me get any tight shit from Goodwill when I was younger.

Except the one I have is the baseball shirt style.  Sometimes in periods of financial stress I consider selling it.  I think it cost two dollars.  I used to go to Value Village or this church thrift store at least once every week, but I already have too many clothes at this point and lack the patience to sift through all that crap.  Still, lots of good deals to be found at those places, but in my current state of laziness I prefer Ebay.

The thrift stores in my area are all way too picked over..

Garage Sales are where it's at. My kids and I go a few times a month in the spring/summer/fall. I've gotten so much stuff it's crazy. Tools, poster, clothes, vintage leather jackets, toys, skateboards, books, furniture... half the shit I own came form a garage sale. You have to go to the rich suburbs though. Never Pay full price!

Recently I got the old drinking glasses that Burger King used to give away when the original star wars movie came out for $5.

You're a bigger hippie than wavy gravy.

Seeing as you don't know a thing about me you like to assume a lot.
Right or wrong, I'd take it as a compliment. Wavy Gravy was a pretty kooky dude, but it was a pretty cool kookiness and Wavy was/is fucking rad. I picked up his book "SOMETHING GOOD FOR A CHANGE, Random Notes on Peace Through Living" at a used comics/bookstore and I fucking loved it. He was the guy that announced the "Brown Acid" at Woodstock. I'm not a hippie myself, but I appreciate activists from his generation.

On topic:
(http://a810.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/images01/57/l_cd48a97b27b6226d755244192b047e21.jpg)
This is an old photo of a shirt that I bought when I was 19, but I still wear to this day... dark brown, fits like an American Apparel, soft as fuck, and it has a pretty sick illustration of a guy playing a guitar. It says "Don Francisco, The Live Concert". About five years ago I found out that Don is a Christian folk singer. I was at the park and a dude there my age was like "whoa man, you listen to Don Francisco? I love that dude's music." I told him I bought it because the art was sick, but that I'd look him up, which I never did. I don't want to ruin the shirt if the guy sucks. It's already funny because I'm not Christian, but I know too much as it is.

Over the years, I've picked up 8 or 9 17" crt monitors for $5 each (four I got at once), maybe a dozen keyboards at 50 cents a pop, and an old school SCSI card, cable, and scanner that I'll never use, I just have it. So far, all the monitors that I've ever bought there have worked, once had a scratch on it but it didn't matter... I could see the scratch on the glass but it was for a little file server, so looks didn't mean a lot. Had a good image though.

We have swap meets where I live. I've found some cool late 60's and early 70's banana shape boards. Every now and then some early 90's shirts.

I got the suit I was married in, YSL never been worn. A Christian Dior sailing blazer. Bottega Veneta slip ons. I always buy leather belts when I see them. Got my wife two Mui Mui dresses, a YSL summer trench coat and Tory Burch pumps. I work in the rich part of town and these people give away good designer things.

Other than that I buy most of my jeans there and lots of random button down shirts.

Just have a local goodwill. I bought an entire CD booklet full of early 2000ís indie music once that came with a booklet signed by The Strokes. Flipped a pair of Gravis as well about two weeks ago and on that same trip I managed to snag a brand new pair of Cons CTS.

Not that into thrift stores.

But garage sales are the shit.

On Saturday I got a brand new shop vac for 5 bucks.

I also got some Van's shoes for 2 bucks a pair and I probably overpaid.

I'm still stoked on the shop vac though

I'm pissed that you thrifted that camera, I've owned at least 5 of them and they're worth around $200 now, but you could probably get even more for it

geez! 200? i found one a few years ago for 15 and i ended up breaking it. bought another one on ebay for maybe 80-90 and then sold it for about 100 when i got out of film photography. i recently flipped the zoom version i found in a thrift store for 3 bucks, sold it for 30.

i still have an olympus XA-2 that I need to get rid of. im thinking that and some of my skate video collection is going to help fund the new guitar i want.

I almost did the exact same thing, but I love my XA2 too much, so I skimped and bought the Squier instead (it's actually one of the best guitars i've played though)

I'm on a hawaiian shirt phase right now, so I've picked up some awesome ones at my Goodwill. I saw a Guiness themed one with the tucan and shit yesterday but it was a size too small.

For sure - they're regularly $250+ in Oz. I love that little Olympus Mju. It works perfectly, is super fun to carry around and takes a beaut photo. I still hear of people picking them up for a song cause they made millions of them.

Couple days ago I got a Miller lite baseball cap, a thin windbreaker, a fresh ass pair of black Dockers, and a fresh ass pair of brown Ralph pants, both to skate in. All for ten bucks. Pretty stoked.
