Most folks who don't know thrift stores think of Value Village, and that's too bad. Prices are more often than not 50 to 200% of brand new prices. Their beat-up "antiques" sell for not-beat-up antique store prices. If you are looking for Halloween Costumes, this is where you'll find some of what Display and Costume sells, for the same exact price. Why not just shop the sales of the new stores and save some money?
