I went to Montreal last week, and I was very excited to go thrift shopping in a big Canadian City. I walked into the Salvation Army (or ArmÃe du Salut, as they called it) with hopes of getting a really warm wool coat or perhaps some swanky new snowboots, but it sucked. They had no good men's clothing. All I got was a crappy Canadian beer shirt because it was the only piece of clothing I could find with French writing on it. This a warning to anyone who's planning on going to Montreal and thrift shopping. The key to thrifting is that you have to keep looking. I go to the same salvation army once a week and there is new shit all the time. Mostly it sucks but one day I found a pair of new suede Ferregamo wingtips. $20. Keep trying.
