Thrift store gouging has been a pet peeve of mine for a while. I grew up on shopping in those places all through high school, college and two marriages. What could Goodwill and Salvation Army etc. be thinking about? I wanted to open my own for so long just so I could do the dollar-a-bag of clothes sale. I hope the thrift stores decide to put thrift back in their name. It is a shame and a sham! Go check out the post at http://cottageindustry.typepad.com/ and see what you think. She is so darn cute!
