“Sometimes one person’s garbage is another person’s garbage too.”
I like recycle shops, bargain centers, thrift stores, secondhand shops, and the Salvation Army.
I’ve furnished my place with their wares.
Even though I might not find what I’m looking for, I recognize there are things there others will value.
I’ve visited a few recycle shops that sucked: 100% crap. Not even a shopaholic on a a binge with a full wallet of cash would buy anything.
A bad recycle shop is not a shop at all; it’s just a staging point purgatory for things on their way to the dump.
The shop owner would probably make more money selling “used gum“.
