A store with a peculiar odour created by the used clothing and household items within. Fabulous for unique fashion finds, or curiosities for the kitchen that are not to be found in your general retail outlet. Unfortunately, these treasures are few and far between, and can only be found by rummaging. Once a treasure is discovered, it boosts one’s endorphin levels, thus creating euphoria which can last for hours or days, depending on the perceived value of the find (and relative purchase price). Repeat discoveries of this nature will lead to the addiction of op shopping.
