Not the smooth jazz music you expected? Sorry to disappoint.
Thrifting is about what we notice and why we notice it. Heck, that's what all shopping is about. That's also why there's magazines (or "glossies" if you want to be cute) so that we are cued in on what we should buy. You see how this whole media marketing thing works? I'm not trying to be clever this is just what makes the world go round.
Frankly, the point to take in after looking through the pictures is summed up in the lyrics of the song that you should still have playing at an appropriate sound level in the background:
"The newspapers shout a new style is growing,
but it don't know if it's coming or going,
there is fashion, there is fad
some is good, some is bad
and the joke is rather sad,
that its all just a little bit of history repeating."

and I'll see it again...
just little bits of history repeating"
