I have used cotona heirloom thread to embroider on batiste some of the designs were dense like the French knots etc - so I figured it would be easier to use the finest thread to do the designs - it worked... Of course the selection of colours left lots to be desired... but I was doing pastels anyway.
Unless the "THRIFT" store is connected to a church or similar - regular good will goes into the billionaire that owns the stores pocket. People donate - he sells - his costs are minimal and in view of the fact all is donated.....everything he sells is a profit
