12+ Thrift Store Finds That Were True Gems

Who here is a fan of thrift shopping? I have to say I haven't done it in a while. But whenever I see people scoring amazing deals, it makes me want to venture out to the thrift store more often.

Especially when it comes to getting things that look like a million bucks for a fraction of the cost, the thrift store can't be beat. I mean a real fraction, ha, ha!
