Kudos to the Ann Arbor Thrift Shop for the wonderful work they do! An amazing group of women, who, over the years, have helped many, many families in need!

My child came home one day singing this video. I love what the Thrift Shop has done. Excellent.

Love it! And love you guys. Always say how much you helped me when I was young (and you were on Broadway --- hey maybe with these acting skills you need to go back to Broadway! haha) Some pretty good looks in there, too...

Nice of them showing 1 sec of Mens wear, if it wasn't for that I would have not known that they had mens stuff there.

Nice work, but don't let Macklemore see it, small copyright infringement issue.

It's no different than a kid in a talent show at school w/ parents videotaping....besides, they gave credit in the first paragraph of the "article."
