        There's a Thrift Store City, or something close to that name,
just off where Military Highway meets Little Creek Road in Norfolk.
I've gotten MANY cool items from there, though I also liked stopping
at the CHKD stores as well. It was from one of their stores in
Chesapeake that I got an Amiga 4000 for $20! It turned out to have a
bad chip, which I replaced and continued using it for over a year.
I've yet to find their equals up in the D.C. area.
