Some suggestions for thrifting:
Bring disposable gloves. I’m being serious here. Sometimes you have the misfortune of touching something that is moldy or covered in God knows what.
Surgical masks. It’s not very often that you may need one, but if you have a serious mold allergy, it’s a good idea.
Hand sanitizer. Again, with the touching. I’ve put my hands in some pretty revolting things while thrifting. It’s a necessity.
Bring hair elastics to tie your hair back. You never know if the previous owner had lice, scabies, or other contagious skin conditions.
Always launder things you buy.
If you are buying toys, put them inside a pillow case and wash them at a low setting. I would suggest a cold cycle if the toys are older, and have a chance of bleeding.
If the toys cannot be washed, use a damp cloth or some Lysol wipes.

Last February I came across with this army boots. I ordered it online but unfortunately it was already out of stock! My heart was torn apart but I have to move on and so I continued my search for my perfect army boots.

Awhile back while thrifting I saw this boots. Close enough to be my ideal army boots. I love everything except for that big ass S P O R T S word. So I’ve decided to reconstruct it! Yes.. I do love changing things for the better :-)
I used my old F&H belt which is severely damaged. I gave it a second life and..
Chaaaaaaaaaaraaaaaaan! At last! A pair of boots that would make my feet warm on gloomy days.
