i was in the thrift store in vf outlet a week ago. i noticed some hotwheel cars in there .being a collector it interested me and i picked up one and seen the price i thought thats a little high. i came home and looked it up in a collector book i have and it was as much if not higher that the price in the book .figuring in the damage to the package and the wear and tear it had .i will not shop in those stores because of this stuff .

what is your opinion on the thrift stores in this town?
The Threads of Hope Thrift Store supports the House of Hope in many ways. If a referral is made through the House of Hope by law enforcement, Departement of Children's Services or other professional those needs are met from items at the House of Hope and also the Thrift store free of charge. The store has provided, clothing, furniture, household items, ect... while the House of Hope provides food, baby items, clothing and toiletry items, Christmas, etc....

Threads of Hope Thrift Store does not allow volunteers to mark down items because they feel that volunteers and shoppers should pay the same amount. Volunteers at Threads of Hope get no special treatment and are not allowed to go through items before they go on to the sales floor. I think the prices are fair and I have bought many things there. What I like is that everything goes on sale after 30 days to half price. I for one thing I am not going to donate my things if they are going to give them away. That leaves room for professional dealers and people that do yard sales to purchase items too cheap and then resale them for profit. So if I am going to donate something to a thrift store I want as much of the proceeds to go the store and organization it supports as possible, not line the pockets of a dealer. If volunteers quit for that reason then so be it.

[A good thrift store is the one in Vanity Fair "Second Chance" Money goes toward Battered Women. Prices are good BUT some Volunteers are not so nice. But I can over look them for a good deal. Store is CLEAN and ORGANIZED!!

i know what you mean Meldan.i went to the thread of hope store and picked up a box of oriental junk.they said they couldnt sell it to me until a expert came in and priced it.ok went back the next day and it still wasnt priced.i said come on its just a bunch of japanese papers and junk,they were very rude.i walked out and i will never go back in their again.the big wigs their arnt friendly at all.
Well I can respect that, if a specialty item comes in you don't want to overprice it and you don't want to under price it either. Must have been a voluteer that wanted to purchase it cause it wouldn't have been on the sales floor if it wasn't priced. I know some people that volunteer there and volunteers get no special treatment as far as pricing goes. If the items weren't priced yet then they truly were not for sale at that time.

Now this is just funny to me. Unless there are experts on every collectible in the universe at a thrift store, things are going to be sold cheap. Very often I buy stuff at thrift stores to resell on ebay. I've found some great items and made good money that way! But what is wrong with that? I'm paying what the store ask for an item and it is mone to do as I pleae with once I've paid for it! Half the time the thrift stores RUIN things with tape and rubberbands that tarnish silver plate etc. Once they are ruined or they are priced too high, I leave them because there will be something the next day that will be a great item and priced right!

And just because I buy it and try to sell it, it may not sell on ebay so then what? I'm stuck with it OR I DONATE IT BACK TO the store! I do it for fun and a little spending money. TRUST ME! I'M NOT GETTING RICH on any of this stuff!
