Today I ventured out to one of my favorite thrift stores in the Uptown neighborhood of Chicago. I could literally spend a good 2 hours plus inside of this thrift store, and later give two craps about the waste of a few hours. In the past, I have used this thrift store to visit for my eBay purchases to sell on a later date. Sometimes with that, I end up liking what I purchased, but to outweigh the regret of purchasing I get rid of something that I currently have, so that I do not end up hoarding things in my apartment. Visiting with the sole purpose to sell on eBay also gave me a reason to go regularly, plus it also pushed me to weed out used and unused items that I have.
As for this visit, there were many items that caught my eye, such as several household and kitchen items, knickknacks, antiques, toys, shoes, and a “Hit Hard Hit Often” – WWE Roman Reigns shirt, which I toted around before heading to the register. I’m awed by the things I see at thrifts, which excites me to return! Plus, I try to paint a picture why that item was donated, which I will never understand. Anyway, before I bore you all with that story my confession is the purchase of a Pearl Izumi singlet, which sold instantly on eBay, plus the purchase of a plaid shirt by Hennes & Mauritz.
