I’ve never tried thrift stores but do plan on doing so as it seems like an inexpensive place to get some pretty clothes from what others have said. My clothes have come from shopping online at Woman Within and Dressbarn for the most part. I buy most of my panties and bras at WalMart as well as pantyhose. I did buy a skirt, blouse and pair of flats at WalMart. I have a couple dresses, a skort and blouses that my wife gave me. I regularly get catalogs in the mail from Woman Within and Roaman’s as well as Lands End. I enjoy looking thru them at the different things that are available.
