These placemats were sold for .98 cents each at Target on clearance. The thrift store is charging $8.99 for the four of them. More than twice the sale price.

I truly have a love/hate relationship with thrift shopping these days . . . it's sad since I have been a die-hard thrift shopper since my teen years. This particular store recently underwent a big remodel (including a coffee bar addition) and their prices reflect that now. They always seem to have 40-50% off on their merchandise so they know they are overpriced to begin with. A deal would be 40-50% off "already low prices" - not their inflated prices. Yet I continue to go back again and again . . .
