Trash to Treasure

Where can you find an 8-track player, a set of vintage silverware and a life-sized stuffed gorilla all for under 10 bucks? The good folks at Durango's thrift stores will be more than happy to help you find these items plus a sporty backpack to haul it out in. Bargains abound as garages get their annual spring cleaning and the left-over treasures are dropped off at the docks of your favorite thrift store. Run, don't walk, and grab that funky Krameresque, leopard skin boa, those lime green bowling shoes, and that new, can't-live-without-it nickel-plated sport coat for your second cousin’s third wedding reception before they're gone.
