Vintage Photo Friday: The Creepshow

"Hey there, hot stuff."

This Vintage Photo Friday goes out to all the ladies in the thrift store. Creepers are everywhere. They're browsing the big band records. They're sliding hangers of Mr. Rogers-inspired sweaters while giving you the eye. And their pickup lines are even older than some of the secondhand merchandise. 

Press on, thrifty women. When approached by a thrifting creeper, simply smile and walk away. Don't let the bow-tied weirdo in the plaid sports jacket distract you from the ultimate thrift experience.

And speaking of the ultimate thrift experience, get ready for The $20 Thrift Challenge. Dodging creepers may not be an Olympic event...yet. But competitive thrifting can certainly be gold medal material. The next Let's Go Thrifting post will feature my < $20 finds. If you're game for the challenge, link up with your best $20 thrift scores. And watch out for those creepers, girls.

As a young woman who often thrifts alone, I have much experience with the creepers. They are unfortunately not as foxy as the man in plaid there, but what they lack in looks they make up for in brazen obnoxious confidence.

Love that photo ;)

I know that feeling too, Van. I swear I get creepily hit on by more overly confident weirdos in the thrift than at a bar. And sadly, they are underdressed when compared to this plaid-clad fellow.
