10 Signs Your Neighborhood is Becoming Gentrified

7. Goodwill/Salvation Army is Replaced by a Vintage Clothing Store

Why should charitiable institutions have all the fun? Sure, Goodwill, Salvation Army, and their ilk exist to help clothe the needy who can't afford to pay department store prices. But, damn it, sometimes those needy-folk clothes look so cool!

Your newly gentrified neighborhood has a solution for you, and you won't even have to spend time rooting through old FUBU shirts, JNCO Jeans, and Starter Jackets to find that dope sweater. High-end thrift stores hunt down the coolest fashions other people used to own and sell them at prices higher than they were originally. We truly live in magical times.
