Yay I just saved a bunch of money! 8/26/2005

As a poor graduate student struggling off a stipend, I appreciate any sort of bargain. I was introduced to the world of thrift shopping by a friend, and it was a bit of an eye-opener. The store had a, umm, how to put it, unique smell....sort of musty.....used odor. She immediately began to flip through the clothing while I went towards the wall containing kitchenware, which is what I desperately needed. Well, there were lots of what I would classify as Junk. I mean, plastic cups and jelly glasses? But, I was surprised to find (nearly) complete sets of wine glasses, matching cups, and dishes for unbelievable prices (like 10-25 cents each item). Of course, I will wash and thoroughly sterilize them before use. I wandered through the store and saw furniture, books, accessories, and, yes, the clothing. Again, about 75% pure junk and 25% decent brands/condition. I know that most of these items are either donations, or sold (pawned?) by desperate individuals and/or families (don't want to dwell too much on why they're so desperate....). The customers ranged from those who looked down on their luck, to poor students and to smartly dressed business or housewives. A bargain is always hard to find, but if you're tenacious, the payoff is very rewarding (my kitchen is now fully stocked for entertaining). Now if only I could get over the smell..... more

A 'World' of difference 7/8/2005

Thrift World of Durham is quite unlike any other thrift store I've been to. Aside from its large size, it carries more stock than other shops of its kind. Here the shopper will find rows among rows of gently used clothing, furniture, books (all of which are just 50 cents each), CDs, DVDs, VHS, dolls, plush animals, toys, houseware, shoes, and LPs (among lots of other things). Everything is extremely reasonably priced, and there's always a treasure to be found! In addition, there is a different sale every day of the week. I recently shopped on Ladies' Day, whereon all ladies' clothing and shoes are 50% off. I was in the market for a suit, and I found a brand new two piece suit in my size that ended up costing me only $4.50!! Hours for this amazing store are Mon-Fri 9am-7pm, Sat 9am-6pm, and Sun 12-5. more
