GREENVILLE, S.C. -

It's the song that rocked the airwaves and made bargain shopping cool.

"Thrift Shop" by Macklemore has people hitting up second hand stores looking for a good deal.

But how accurate is the video? What can you really get for $20?  7 On Your Side Reporter Rachel Kent put it to the test.

We went to Salvation Army Thrift Store and Miracle Hill Ministries Thrift Store.

For 20 bucks we were able to get two outfits including shoes with $3 to spare.

"I love it.  You can get name brands, clothes everything for thrift store prices," bargain shopper Terri Seabrook said.

We did manage to find the famous fur coat from the video, but that will put you $20 over budget.

But what we did learn is that if you dig around you may come across some hidden treasure, so Macklemore definitely makes a good point that bargain hunting maybe the way to go.

    Dozens of drivers have filed complaints with the South Carolina Department of Transportation over loose gravel along a stretch of I-85. Officials said the complaints, which topped out at between 6 and 8 per day last week, stem from gravel that's damaged vehicles between Highway 14 and 129, where crews are working on a two-year-long resurfacing project.
