Ditto . . .
. And I am female. Agree with Outtahere. Also, like OAP, I will sometimes shop at the thrift stores for some great bargains. I remember standing in the checkout line at either Goodwill or ValueVillage one day; this classy looking, well-dressed lady next to me was purchasing a beautiful all wool Navy Blue Blazer that looked brand new. She told the clerk she had been looking for one just like it all day at the more upscale stores like Nordstrom and Bon's but couldn't find one that suited her. And here she found exactly what she wanted in her size for a ridiculously low price. I wonder how many millionnaires shop at these places. Probably more than we think.
My mother always bought new stuff at the usual department stores downtown or at the malls. One day, I brought her into one of these Thrift stores. I could tell she was rather uncomfortable there because I think she would've been embarrassed if someone that she knew saw her shopping there. She did buy one item of clothing but seemed anxious to leave right away.
