As a member of GenX we thrifted way before there were very many local thrift stores outside of GoodWill or Salvation Army. There was no Internet shopping so we grew up at a time when you had to shop IRL and we learned through first hand experience to feel the fabrics and look at the stitching and see if clothes were lined. We can absolutely tell how over time clothes manufacturing has moved to cheap fabrications.

So much gets lost when shopping in person is not a regular practice. Too sad.
