I've had worse. When I was in SoCal on vacation, we'd Google thrift shops, drive out to them and turns out it's the offices o the rehab centers! I'll second what everyone else has said. You only see the good finds posted here. Once in awhile we need to vent and we'll post about how fed up with our dry-streak, but most of the time it's all the good finds. I usually find stuff 1/3 trips, but I hit at least 2-3 stores at a time. Sometimes 5 or 6. I too have gone months with nothing and then all of a sudden I'll hit the motherlode. That one major score keeps you going. I'm still running off the fumes from a couple years ago when I scored 10 Brioni suits/sportcoats in one place for peanuts.
