Trends:
1. Thrift stores are getting busier.
2. People of both sexes are getting more clued up to the flipping avenue.
3. There has been a radical increase in young people thrifting (college age to low 30's).
4. Woman used to outnumber men around 2/1, now it is getting closer to even.
5. The vehicles have improved in the parking lot. See lots of trucks / BMW's now!

I'm seeing the same trends. I've seen a lot more #menswear looking dudes at the thrifts in the last few months.

Nice score. That's a great looking jacket.

I wish they had these at the Philadelphia store, or hopefully they don't now since I was there a week and a half ago. That thing is awesome, and I hear it is some pretty quality stuff.

so this morning went to my local goodwill and saw this nice vintage aluminum chair,its no Herman Miller but i liked it nonetheless and have some extra leather i could lay on it.

BUT...i had a latte in my hand so i was just too lazy to roll it out with one hand.i knew i was gonna stop by again later in the evening on way home and if it was meant to be it would still be waiting for me.
