Gag me!

I follow some fabulous home improvement and redesign kind of sites. I love what they come up with for cheap, cheap doing a lot of their shopping at thrift stores. I truly admire their talent and ability. They are so inspiring!

I saw a new store the other day called Re Design and was excited to go in and check it out. As soon as I walked in, I was assaulted by the thrift store stench. I seriously had to turn around and walk back out. That smell makes me want to, well, vomit. It gags me. Why do thrift stores stink? The old stuff in my house doesn't stink...I've been to consignment stores that don't stink. Why the thrift stores? I know there are true gems there waiting to be found. I've donated good stuff...

Should I smear some Vicks under my nose so I all smell is that?   I am leaning toward paying a bit more for an item in order to not toss my cookies. Blah!


  1. Oh, that's really too bad. That's why I don't reallly thrift. Well, that and many other reasons.

  2. I don't get it either. I've found a few local thrift stores that don't stink. But in general they all smell really bad.

  3. I know exactly what smell you are talking about. Seriously where does it come from????

  4. I know the stench you are talking about. I have no idea ehy they smell that way. I can't shop stores that have a strong order. I cut my losses, pay mire and figure I'll order water to make up the difference. LOL

  5. That is so true. Which is precisely why I cannot stand to shop at thrift stores. blech.

  6. I'm with you on the smell, but still love going into thrift stores from time to time to see what treasures I can find...I'm not sure where the odor is coming from...I've never been into someone's house that smells that way...


Always happy to hear from you! Comments make my day, just please keep them uplifting and positive. Thanks for stopping by!
