Elite Thrift Store
There are some cute things in this store (like any thrift store) but charging like $8.99 for a worn out Forever 21 top is absurd. Plus, they never have specials ...just 10% for old people on one day of the week or something.
way too expensive.
I'll stick with goodwill
Actually, this store is a good thrift store. There are lots of items, and a friendly staff.
The above reviewer is obviously an amateur at thrift store shopping. The "pencil" you refer to is called a China Marker or Grease Pencil. These are used so the plates are not damaged by forcefully applying a sticker with a tagging device, which may ruin china or porcelain.
Yes, WD-40 will get it off, and Yes, the WD-40 will come off in the dishwasher. You were going to wash these before you used them, right?
There are TONS of clothes, and misc items to be perused!
The prices were very reasonable so I bought $20 worth of plates, cups, bowls and kids' dining items. I've been trying everything I can think of to get the price markings off of them; they're written with some type of pencil. Finally this afternoon I called to ask what they recommend and the lady on the phone says that they use WD-40. I clarify that I bought items for people to eat off of and her response is that's what they do in the store. Super disappointing, the items are all smudged from me trying to scrub it off.
