Not quite the thrift store, but I did find a Swedish military surplus wool sweater...

Only $15. For winter wear, I am starting to like how wool sheds snow and light moisture. Tends to breathe better, too. Seems to work well in the Colorado climate.

It is this one. Your local army store may sell one, too.

Now THAT'S a thrift store ! wow !

I currently live in the SE. Unfortunately, much of the good stuff people don't want anymore ends up as "lawn ornaments" rather than ending up in the thrift store.
Oh well, there are always yard sales.... :)
