I have been informed I should never tell anyone when I buy clothing from a thrift store. I should say “its vintage” instead.
Also I should never gleefully inform someone I bought an article of clothing for $2. I should instead say “it was a gift.”
I don’t think people realize half my happiness over finding something amazing in a thrift store is the fact I only paid $2 for it. Its like I’m a treasure hunter! Why would you try to lie to people to make it sound like you paid a million dollars for it? That’s a trick question. I know why. I just think pretending to pay absurd amounts of money for goods is a ridiculous game that wealthy people play. I’m much more interested in the “I found this for $2 and it looks AMAZING” game.
