Iâ€™m talking thrift store here, as in Goodwill. You got $20 in your pocket, so time to pop some tags.
You would never shop there, right? Well, why not? Donâ€™t let snobbery stop you. There are amazing things in the Goodwill, or any thrift store, but you have to have the right attitude, an eagle eye, a sense of adventure, and a love of lost treasure.
I love this article and I love that because of capitalism, we just give away great items and somebody can come in, pay near nothing, and leave the store with it. God bless capitalism, and I love thrift stores.
"I'm gonna pop some tags
Only got twenty dollars in my pocket
I - I - I'm hunting, looking for a come-up"
"I wear your granddad's clothes
I look incredible
I'm in this big ass coat
From that thrift shop down the road"
