Introducing Thrift Justice!

by Will

Welcome to my newest feature on the site: Tales From the Thrift! As some of you may know, I spend a LOT of time in thrift stores. I tend to wonder what to write about sometimes, and I realized it’s been in front of me the whole time: thrift store visits.

Crazy stuff tends to go down at the thrift store, so the thing practically writes itself. If I’ve got no “stories”, per se, I’ll just show you some of the latest stuff I’ve picked up. Unlike other columns on the site, I hope this doesn’t get dropped after 1 or 2 posts (I’m looking at you, Best of the West). If ya like what you’ve read, leave me a comment so I know it’s not falling on deaf ears.

So, why “Thrift Justice”? As you know, I’m a big proponent of branding, and I wanted a title with a ring to it. I started out with “Tales From the Thrift”, but some dude uses that to post YouTube videos. Then, I thought I’d go with “Thrift Wars”, but some hipster chick…uses it to post YouTube videos. So, the brain started working, and it came to me: “Thrift Justice”. Let it sink in, and you’ll learn to love it as much as I do. So, come back tomorrow for our first installment!
