Repairing Clothing from Thrift Shops

Often clothes at thrift shops end up there just because they need some tweaking. Got a lovely pair of GAP capris - but there as a knot of sorts where the stretchy material of the waistband met the front seam (which is why they got tossed, I bet.) It took 2 minutes for me to cut away the offending stitching - and voila! Great pants for $3. I also look for minor repairs I can do - torn seams, missing buttons, etc.
