|Be patriotic. Go thrifting!|
Finally the day has come where the stateside thrifters can celebrate their passion for frugality and claim actual holiday status. Go ahead. Demand a day off from work in honor of the celebration. When your supervisors question which holiday you're speaking of, scream loudly and proudly:
National Thrift Store Day!!!!!
Sure, the thrift stores may be crowded. The lines may be long and the shelves may be bare by the day's end. But this is the one day a year, as Americans, we can wave our secondhand flags proudly, with thrift store receipts so gallantly streaming from the pockets of our Levis.
And if you're a thrifter from elsewhere in the world, feel free to celebrate with us. Go out and thrift yourselves something nice. And in a special shout-out to those international thrifters, I am curious to know if your country has a day nationally recognized for such an occasion. Please do comment. I'd love to read of your nationally-sanctioned secondhand holidays as well!
In the meantime, I hope that as Americans we can put aside our differing political ideologies for the day and just...go thrifting.
Happy hunting, everyone!
