North Pole: tale of two sites

 We ventured out to North Pole, to check up on their transfer sites. Their in-town site was glorious and huge, but it was nearly empty, save for a few TVs.

   The Badger road site had more; it was pretty well picked over, but we made it work.

Trash to Treasure

Everyone is always searching for the most vintage, yet cheap, outfits. They are posting where they got certain accessories, and how much of a steal all aspects of it really were...Well, this takes it to eleven (cause there really is no other way.)
I present to you, kind public: Arrogantly Shabby. Every piece of clothing featured, every accessory, all shoes--it ALL comes straight from the local transfer stations (also known as the dump). We model all clothing on the day we find it, at the specific transfer station in which it was found. Get ready to be trashy.

Now how much more thrifty could one get?
