Also known as a "second hand shop", a thrift store is a business that runs solely off the reselling of other people's shit. They have little to no overhead and are often run by lunatic religious groups like the Salvation Army.
These stores usually contain a lot of crap nobody wants, but also will have the occasional gem, such as a pair of nunchucks, an unworn Armani suit in dry cleaner bag previously owned by a deceased person or bedroom furniture with secret compartments holding narcotics.
Person A: Wow, that's a nice shirt.
Person B: Thanks, I got it at the thrift store for a dime.
Police: Your honor, we caught Person B with 12 kilos of cocaine in a bedstand he claims he bought from the Salvation Army.
Judge: Lock him up.
