This weekend I’ll be heading home to Kitchener-Waterloo to go second-hand Christmas shopping. Home town second-hand is the best way to Christmas shop because:
a) Out of town thrift stores actually have THINGS YOU WANT, instead of all the dirty broken crap leftover from hipster thrifters.
b) You can end up finding affordable, unique gifts that you could never find in a store. (Shark clock, knitted kitten art, sort-of-racist diversity mug etc…)
c) It’s a lot cheaper than the over-priced-over-crowded mall.
d) Saving money = a present or two for myself. YES PLEASE.
