Amos is a great big thrift store on Cleveland Ave., and you probably could leave empty-handed, but why bother? The point is you don't have to. I heard they switch their bargain color tags on Thursdays, so that's the best day to go (reasoning that all the deals won't be snatched up). Although looking for deals within deals at a thrift store is maybe looking too deep. Still, the thrill. Amos has a lot of "better" clothes and somehow avoids producing that thrift store residue that usually coats everything. There are usually some fairly esoteric sheet sets and whatever oldies station they play in there is pretty catchy. People usually sing along and you can get a real communal block-party feeling out of it all. Register lines move like mud, though you can brush up on your Spanish while waiting, unless you speak Spanish, in which case you can eavesdrop.
