My wife and I enjoy shopping at thrift stores, antique stores, flea markets and garage sales. It's really got nothing to do with saving money, it's more the thrill of the hunt. When we want something nice we spend the $$$ to get it new, but if we want a little trinket or small peice of furniture it's hard to beat the joy of junking.
What is your best thrift store/antique shop/flea market/garage sale find?
I'd say our best is a 1950's contemporary dresser for $5 + another $10 in stain + labor to strip it down and re-do it. We ended up with a fantastic dresser. It's not a famous brand of furniture or anything, but brought the design of our master bedroom together and it just a great looking peice of furniture.
Our latest score was some lockers out of a school that had shut down. I re-bolted them together and hung them in the garage. Bingo...perfect storage space for winter jackets, boots and who knows what.
Like I said, it's more the thrill of the hunt then what we end up with.
