Thrift Shopping :A hobby that should be respected
I believe this was the Fruitman's first submission for the zine but he ended up being quite prolific both under his pen name and his secret identity. See if you can guess who it is.
Thrift stores are cool yet musty
Sometimes you’ll find a dress,
And end up with a lamp that’s a bit too dusty.
The prices are good if you look real hard enough
$1.00 or $3.00 some items are just a bargain,
hold on to those goodies so you can do some travelin’.
Even though they smell at times,
I wouldn’t recommend the Vic’s mask,
Which Aralis mentioned in her last rhyme.
If you are clever enough you could change the prices.
For those who are better, you can even misplace some items.
So now you know what to do,
The next time you go thrifting,
Misplace those old shoes.
Ah, the Fruitman and I used to go thrift shopping on almost a weekly basis. Those were the days. That was before it became trendy and the stores wised up to how much the stuff was really worth. Back then most of the clothing I owned was older than me.
