Why go to the hardware store when you can go to the thrift store instead?
You know it's a bad thrift store when you walk in and immediately feel like you're in your dad's garage... What makes it worse though is when you actually see people buying half-filled cans of Folger's and various rusty cans of chemicals you've never even heard of... Seriously, you know some of these things are at least 20 or 30 years old.
Well, at least someone will buy them, yeah? Why else would they be sold?
