In highschool my entire wardrobe was Value Village. I took great pleasure in hitting up the massive store in East Van on Saturday mornings when the new shipment had arrived and had yet to be combed through.
Every time I found a pair of pumps that fit or a t-shirt with a great design it was like striking gold. I still miss my turquoise heels and Free Martha shirt.
I love Seattle rapper Macklemore and currently have this song (and the entire album) on repeat. But Thrift Shop is pretty dead on.
But shit, it was ninety-nine cents! (Bag it). Coppin' it, washin' it, 'bout to go and get some compliments.
I also just happened to visit old VV last week and got lucky with leather boots and a blazer that fit like they were made for me.
Go get your thrift on.
