How would you feel if I bought you a gift from a thrift store? Seriously? Before you answer: Jake and I are contemplating buying all our Christmas gifts at the thrift stores this year...for many reasons. #1. Financially it just makes sense. #2. It is good old fashion recycling. #3. I think it is fun....a game of sorts. We might not be able to get everything thrifting but I am pretty sure we will do very well. I already bought 2 sets of brand new looking board books for Avery & the cutest little Barbie dollhouse for Elise ($1.99 at The Salvation Army). It is in perfect condition but it is missing the accessories. I just looked it up on Amazon and new the item costs almost $140 - I am so excited! Today I stopped by Goodwill and found a fabulous gift for someone on my list (it may be you.....). It is actually something I was thinking about getting the person already but much MUCH better than I would have been able to afford from a new retailer. I am thrilled. I think by starting early I will be able to do this!
So...would you think less of the gift or the giver if you knew a gift was second-hand or inexpensive?
