In every city in the UK there are probably more than half a dozen Charity shops. We probably perused about 50 (at least!) throughout England, Scotland, the Republic of Ireland, and Northern Ireland. It was magical. Really. Thrift shopping in the U.S. is definitely fun, but somehow old British stuff appeals to me more than old Utah stuff. I have contrived two possible reasons for this:
- "Old British stuff" means junk that is anywhere from months to centuries old, and
- Utah people use everything they have until it is virtually unusable. This is thanks to such thrifty leaders as Brigham Young who said "Never let anything go to waste. Be prudent, save everything", which is honestly great counsel for us all, it just makes shopping at DI less interesting.
