Thrifters Helping Thrifters

1a-boatkids-graphicsfairy002cI just had to share this story.  Today I went to Goodwill for their half off sale.  I only got some stuff to use for moving, nothing special.  Anyway, while looking at some stuff on a cart I overheard a woman talking on her phone.  She was asking about ideas for a wedding shower gift.  Apparently it was today and she needed an inexpensive last minute gift.  At that moment I spotted a beautiful pair of wine glasses that were on sale for $1 each and just screamed wedding to me.  I handed them to her and asked if they’d work then walked away grinning to myself about what a great thing I did.  I overheard her tell the person on the phone how great the glasses were.  What was really cool was when I went to check out and ran into her again, she thanked me for finding the glasses since they were perfect.  Yay!  I helped someone.  That’s one of the great things about thrift stores, most of the shoppers are willing to help out other shoppers.  That’s probably why I didn’t really hesitate to help her, I have been helped by others in the past so it’s returning the favor.  Now if only people did that more in other stores, the world would be a friendlier place.
