2nd hand stores...

What are your thoughts? I, myself, am a huge fan. I can spend HOURS roaming around those stores. My sister even made that my birthday present this past year.

I LOVE second hand/thrift stores! I've found lots of cool stuff there. I don't always find anything good when I go to one though.

Love them! I had an eighties-prom themed party back in college and the second hand and charity shops proved to be a goldmine in terms of finding outfits!

Not so into them myself, personally. I get really wrapped up in thinking about who had owned the item previously; I never really feel like anything I buy in a second-hand shop becomes 'mine.' It's very weird, I know. And with 2nd hand books (the used items I buy most often), I get really irritated by other people's writing, spills, and the discoloration/decaying book smell that develops over time. I try to buy new whenever possible, even if it means I don't get to go shopping very often, and then I keep that item until it falls apart (I still wear clothes I bought in 7th grade, for example).

Book stores are a frequent haunt of mine. I've even found brand new classics in them for half price (who cares about the edition when a novel was written in the 1800s).

I love second hand shopping, not only for clothing but books and home decor. I just inspect it before buying and clean it really well once I get home.

I really dislike clothing shopping in general. But, I'm cheap when it comes to how much I am willing to spend on clothing, so second hand stores are usually the only places I go. I also like searching for sewing supplies when I'm there, a silk shirt for a lining, or a shirt full of nice buttons.

I love re-creating.  I'll take a men's sweater and turn into a skirt.  I love thrift stores.

I love thrift stores. I have a small VHS player TV that I purchased a while ago at our thrift store. I can watch tons of movies for 10 cents each. :D
