So the difference between thrifting in the UK and the US. Mrs NickD had a couple of hours to kill while I was doing some training at work yesterday, bearing in mind we work in a fairly large city, and for her 2 hours thrifting she found...

...one Chester Barrie shirt.

The best of the rest was worn out PRL, but mainly orphan suit jackets from supermarkets at £15 and that kind of thing. It's depressing.

We'll be making a trip to the US at some point for a holiday, and you'd better believe we're coming over with half empty suitcases!

thrifting is so weird. i have found, literally, 30 suits and sportcoats over the past 2 days at a multitude of different stores, while finding almost zero shirts or shoes. why is this? the questions i stay up late asking myself - strange times, my friends

1. Take your jacket that you own off to try on thrift store jacket (not in changing room)

2. Take thrift store jacket off and put back on rack

3. Put your jacket that you own back on

4. Think to self, "Hmm I hope no one thinks I'm stealing this jacket. What if they only saw me putting it on and then walking out of the store? It's my jacket I swear!"

5. Feel a little guilty/hope no one tackles you as you walk out of the shop wearing the jacket that you own

6. Think to self as you open car door, "I got away with it."

7. Drive to freedom/next shop. Repeat.

No, but I have taken my jacket off to try on a new one, only to have another shopper come by and grab my jacket, thinking it's for sale.
