What exactly did Macklemore get for his $20 at the Thrift Shop?

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis tickets


We all know that if there’s one thing Macklemore & Ryan Lewis love doing, it’s shopping. After all, they went off popping tags in the Thrift Shop and their current single, Downtown, takes us through the first-time experience of buying a moped.

But do they really drive a hard bargain? We decided to take a look at what that $20 dollars bought them in Thrift Shop…

Leopard mink – which apparently smells like R Kelly’s  sheets… It was only 99 cents though…

Macklemore then decided he wanted to go ‘grandpa style’ and appeared to purchase a velour jumpsuit and some house slippers, as well as a brown leather jacket.

Next up was a broken keyboard, a ski blanket and a knee board, although I’m not quite sure what that is.

I’m also a bit unsure as to whether or not he took the Pro Wings and made them cool – I’ll have to get back to you on this one…

Back to the grandpa chic and next up on the shopping list was a plaid button shirt, and last, but by no means least, Macklemore left with some flannel zebra jammies and some built in onsies with the socks.

Given that with the current exchange rate $20 is around £13, I would say he’s a pretty good bargain hunter!

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis will be touring the UK in April 2016. Find your tickets here.
