    Thrift stores can be intimidating, if you're not the kind of person whose idea of a Happy Place involves routinely coming across used Kleenex. But, there's a lot of treasure in thrift stores, and knowing that is enough to give devoted shoppers the patience to weed through hundreds of duds for that one special thing. But, what if we told you that there's actually a loophole?

Click through to see a few in action, and see how expert buttoning techniques can be the difference between Dad on Vacation and Street Style Bait.
