Some thrift stores have clothes with that "used" smell but most don't from my experience. I always wash my "new" used clothes before wearing them anyway but many times they look brand new and some still have the tags on them.
Guess it depends on the thrift store, but I just happened to find a gold mine. Still shop at Goodwill too and found half my summer wardrobe there - brand names, looked brand new and, again, some with the store tags still on them - for the same amount I would've spent on just one shirt at a retail store.
My motto is "It's new to me." And I feel very smart wearing top brand name clothes with a lot of money still in my pocketbook.
But my husband used to think like you do though until I bought him three brand name shirts that he absolutely loves.- after washing them first, of course. I made believers out of both my daughter and my husband.
That's great that you have the time and patience to pick through things. Lots of people do the same. I did buy a rowing machine for $20 and it would have cost probably $150 new; nothing like a bargain! I buy used books; even order them on Amazon or Wonderbook. Picked up a super wall mirror at a yard sale once for $15.00, everyone loves it, it's huge and probably was originally at least $500. you never know what you'll find!

Eleven L.A. County Sheriff's patrol cars descended on Justin Bieber's house a few minutes ago and they are executing a search warrant in connection with the egg-throwing incident ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

Sources tell us ... deputies are looking for any evidence that links Bieber to the egg assault on his next door neighbor.

We're told this is a FELONY search warrant -- meaning Justin is under a microscope for a crime that could land him in prison.

Sources say cops will look for anything that is relevant to the egg incident, including other eggs in the house and possible video. Sheriff's deputies have looked at TMZ's video of the incident and want to see if someone inside Justin's house videotaped the incident as well.

By the way ... looking for other eggs may sound silly, but it isn't. There could be some sort of identifier that links what's in Justin's fridge to the broken eggs outside.

Here's the thing ... If in the course of the search cops find something illegal -- like drugs -- it's fair game.

We're told there's a battering ram at the scene.

You're right, they have no one to blame but themselves when taxes skyrocket and the military becomes downsized, leaving us vulnerable to attacks.

In an editorial published Monday, The Newark Star-Ledger rejected arguments made by Republicans that the George Washington Bridge lane closings scandal has been over-covered compared to the attack in 2012 on a U.S. diplomatic mission and a C.I.A. compound in Benghazi, Libya.
The newspaper offered three reasons why "the unrelated Bridgegate and Benghazi stories aren’t getting equal time – and shouldn’t." For one, the editorial argued, in the case of the Benghazi attack, as in the case of the IRS political screening scandal, "the facts dampened the early cries of conspiracy and cover-up."
The editorial also argued that documents released last week showing aides to Gov. Chris Christie (R) covering the tracks of their involvement with the lane closures have raised a lot of unanswered questions.
Finally, the editorial argued that the Obama stories aren't being covered now simply because of the way time works.
"To expect coverage of old stories to increase because of an uncomfortable new story is silly," the editorial said.

Pope Francis has issued his strongest condemnation yet of abortion, calling it a "horrific" symptom of a "throwaway culture" that placed too little value on human life.
He said it was was "frightful" to think about early pregnancy terminations.
Since his election in March, the pope has not spoken out against abortion as sternly as his predecessors.
He made the comments is his yearly "State of the World" address to diplomats accredited to the Vatican.
"It is horrific even to think that there are children, victims of abortion, who will never see the light of day," he said in part of the speech that addressed the rights of children around the world.
"Unfortunately, what is thrown away is not only food and dispensable objects, but often human beings themselves, who are discarded as unnecessary."
The BBC's Alan Johnston in Rome says that there has been concern in some quarters of Roman Catholicism that the pope has not been putting the church's view on abortion forcefully enough.
Our correspondent says that the Pope's stance favouring mercy over condemnation has made more conservative Roman Catholics uneasy, but they will welcome his latest remarks.
Some months ago Pope Francis acknowledged that he had said little on issues like abortion and contraception.
But he explained that he felt it was not necessary to talk about these controversial questions "all the time".
Perhaps he should direct his speeches to men. Without them sticking their penises into any women that will have them, there wouldn't be so many "throw away" babies.

As usual, this pope is as much of a misogynist as the rest of the vatican.
When they stop raping little boys and girls and clean up their own backyards,
people will be more willing to listen to them as they pass judgement on others.

We've heard this same-old song for decades. Catholic kids can recite anti-gay, anti-abortion ideology with great precision but none of them know anything about the bible because the last thing the RCC wants catholics to do is read the bible and live by it's message.

Mind your own business, stop judging others and do your job. Run the church.
We can take care of our own vaginas, thank you very much, papa.

Someone should tell the pope that 40,000 children starve to death every day around the world. Perhaps a speech on BIRTH CONTROL is in order and not the one where the pope tells people to stop using it. Talk about moronic leadership.

Iranian president Hassan Rouhani is taking to Twitter to gloat about the nuclear deal his country struck with the U.S. and other Western countries.
"Our relationship w/ the world is based on Iranian nation's interests. In #Geneva agreement world powers surrendered to Iranian nation's will," Rouhani tweeted about an hour ago.
In a recent interview, Iran's chief negotiator for the nuclear deal also claimed victory.
“No facility will be closed; enrichment will continue, and qualitative and nuclear research will be expanded,” the chief nuclear negotiator said.“All research into a new generation of centrifuges will continue.”

Very weird case__the guy was texting and when asked to stop__kept texting.

It was an early matinee and the movie hadn't even begun__seems like the shooter and his wife could have found another seat if that upset.

Two things seem strange imo. The shooter argued with the texter, left the theater briefly and then came back and the two argued again. If he was getting his gun from the car he should be charged with FDM. Also__the guy's daughter was 3 years old who had been dropped off at day care__do three year old's text?

We are still reeling from the effects of the Bush debacle. It is interesting how Clark conveniently leaves out the global economic collapse in 2008, ya think that might have had some effect on Obama's numbers? Ya think???

As an aside he also changed the criteria with regards to the unemployment numbers.

Bottom line: the Bush legacy continues....
