8B - The Michigan Daily Weekend Magazine - Thursday, October 8, 1998


The Michigan Daily Weekend b

University students
are pressed for cash. With
the rising prices of books,
tuition, parking tickets and those
late-night pizza runs, it feels good to
know that some stores won't suck students
dry while they are shopping for essentials
and not-so-essentials. Ann Arbor's versatile
fashion sense is one of its most distinguishing
features, and it is usually attained at an affordable
price. Walk down the street and find people clad in
anything and everything, from '70's slick to '90's
chic. A multitude of retail establishments support the
student habit with low prices and great selections. In
addition to the choicest retro threads, many resale
stores provide everything else as well ... including the
kitchen sink! Although one can find sparkling treasures
such as vintage cameras, framed artwork and dinner-
ware at Ypsilanti's Value Village and the Saturday
morning Kiwanis sales on First Street, the warehouse-
sized Recycling Center on S. Industrial Avenue is
stocked with virtually every household item known
to humanity: anything from pots and pans to doors
and windows, a generous selection of lumber,
appliances, and an entire floor of bicycles. One
person's trash is certainly another's treasure!
So whether you're searching for a replace-
ment bathtub or simply looking to
expand your bellbottom collection,
the Ann Arbor area is willing to
cut you a deal.
