The Thrift is the ongoing search for amazing, kitschy, cool, outrageous, and inexplicable things at Thrift Stores (Salvation Army, Goodwill, etc.), yard sales, Government Auctions, Penny Saver newspapers, etc.

The Thrift is a never-ending journey, like life, where one special item may fill a particular need, but never completely Satisfies.

Basically, The Thrift is thrifting in a more universal way.
When I hit my thirties, I thought I was done searching through bales of clothing and pawnshops, always looking for the ultimate score, but THE THRIFT is a seductive mistress, and her siren-call could not be ignored.

I'll gladly keep my fifty cent copy of "Maggot Brain" over some re-mastered quadraphonic enhanced CD... the scratches add authenticity to the music and remind me of The Thrift and all her sweet mysteries.

That guy in the line ahead of me got that Eames chair just before me, the agony of The Thrift!
