Nowhere is this old adage more visible than in thrift stores. Why spend $10 a new pair of underwear when you can have strapless panties for $1.99? You can get decked out like Cosmo Kramer for under $10 and be the envy of all the hipsters. I used to spend hours pouring over smelly junk to find that perfect ironic t-shirt or retro drinking jar. I'd make out like a bandit with only a handful of dollars. Behold some of the gold that has been found in thrift stores across America and marvel at how some people could part with these hilarious treasures.
