There is something called “The Target Phenomenon” , that thing where you go to Target to get toilet paper and end up buying $300 worth of home accessories, make-up and shoes, which, as of lately, have been quite nice. The same rule applies to thrift stores. Even more so, because there is no definitive “thing” you can find at a resale store. You have to leave it to the thrifting gods to bestow unto you their gifts. Today, all the rules of the thrifting universe were in play as I casually stopped by Quality Thrift to find a few props for a photobooth I am doing on Saturday for a wedding. I was looking for a cheap, beat up vintage chair and a couple of suitcases, and what I left with were a few staples for my spring wardrobe. Had I left empty handed, I would have felt at a loss. But that wasn’t the case.
