If you read any standard "rules" for thrifting, you will always notice they mention to bring a friend. Or as I like to call it, a thrifting soul mate. For the longest time, I have been searching for my thrifting soul mate. Somebody who shops in the same rhythm as me and, of course, loves thrift stores!
In the past year, I've gotten to go to many new second hand places with many different kinds of shoppers. Some were clingy, some took too long, some sped through, some plain out cancelled on me at the last minute. There have been a few that have come close to being "the one", but after a birthday shopping trip last week, I think I've learned who my thrifting soul mate was all along. My mom! We work the store at the same pace and are patient with one another. We see each other everyday, so we know what the other is looking for and can be helpful to one another. When I told her of this realization, she thought it was so cool. (and agrees completely!)
I guess after having a good thrifting trip last week (after a few failed ones) really got me thinking about this subject. Now, I'm not positive of the specifics, but I'm sure you people can have more than one thrifting soul mate. I hope that I can continue to find them! Do you have a favorite person to thrift with or do you prefer to be a loner?
