Hi we don't have Thrift shops here. We keep chucking things out that are useless but they keep coming back like a recycled secretaire.
Home or Business, energy or transport or whatever.
Thrift is an unusual word in the UK. It is mainly the poor who are thrifty, the rest economise and the A-Z list spend spend spend.
We have charity shops, loads of them in place of businesses not able to cope in current circumstances. We were once known as a nation of shopkeepers. If only!!!
Best figures I found were a Captain Kirk in a disguise visiting the earth of the past and Indiana Jones.
Captain Kirk RIP was lost at sea on one of my fishing boats it was a terrible storm only just got the boat back, lost the catch of course!.
Capt. I Jones took over and with a bit more blue tac around the feet I have high hopes of him. He does look so angry though, he just took the job, never said a word! I was going to tell him he was going to lose his hat if he was not careful but he just glared at me!
