In the last decade, thrift hunting has become a hobby, if not a lifestyle, for many secondhand and vintage lovers. But people have noticed that prices for secondhand goods are getting higher than ever, and this TikToker who goes by the handle @Mrsniceguyy surely has had enough of it.
The author shared a video stating that “Value Village just needs to be called out,” since they’re “getting out of control.” Mrsniceguyy then proceeds to share a couple of examples on the green screen behind her. She shows just what a ripoff the price is for used, worn, dirty, and defunct items that don’t even cost that much brand new.
Scroll down to see what Mrsniceguyy had to say about Value Village below and let us know if you have noticed price increases in thrift stores!
