We all draw a line somewhere. Some of us refuse to buy used plates, others used shoes. I'm sure all of us draw the line at used underoos! (Buy hey, thrift stores wouldn't stock 'em if people weren't buying 'em!)
This article on yahoo advises against buying: Mattresses, Swimsuits, Underwear, Cosmetics, Stuffed Animals, Rugs, Comforters, Eyeglasses, Wigs, and Hats!
The Lovely Sammy Davis has a very detailed article against buying: helmets, mattresses and bed frames, old or new make up, children's cribs, stuffed animals, food blenders and processors, used undergarments, baby car seats and carriers, running shoes, and halogen lamps.
I Draw The Line On: Toiletries or make-up (I use homemade hippie crap anyway!), medicine (again, don't use 'em!), used undergarments, icky-looking shoes, helmets, important life or death safety equipment (Like a parachute! Ha!)
I personally am not a germaophobe. I feel like I interact in a world filled with germs and toxins and can't spend too much time fretting about what's been where. I just know to clean what comes into the house. And clean myself. ;)
What do you refuse to buy from the Thrift Store? Where do you draw the line? Let's Discuss!
