Thrift Store Shopping

Just the other day I went to my local thrift Store and found some amazing finds.  I know a lot of people don’t like thrift shopping because of many reasons but you can really find some unique pieces that no one else will have.  You might even score an item that still has the price tag on and has never been used.

I found this top with really nice sleeves that I just could not pass on.  The gold detail on the top and sleeves is beautiful.  There are so many ways you can style this but I opted for the all nude look.  This is just one example of something unique you can find in a thrift store. You can even find things for the whole family too.  They have everything from purses, shoes, to hats.  You might even score some name brand pieces as well.  The possibilities are endless.

Need a little help in the thrift store department, follow these tips.

Tips to follow:

    • Go BOLD- pick items you would normally not wear or spend the full amount on it.
    • Try on Different Sizes:  Remember you will find items from different eras and as time has progressed sizes have changed over time, so a small in 1970, can be a medium now.
    • Look Out for Sales:  Yes…besides the already low prices, some stores will have sales on top.
    • Before you Purchase:  Most stores are final sales and do not accept returns.  Make sure you inspect every item before you go up to the register. Look for: holes, seams, rips, stains, missing buttons, or any other flaws.  Some flaws are fixable and are worth purchasing as is if it is something simple you can fix on your own.
    • Wash all Items:  You want to feel comfortable and sanitary with everything you buy, so make sure you wash everything once or twice before you wear them.

  1. Oh, I love your shirt! That’s such a good find. There’s so much thrifting in my area that I find it hard to go thrifting. I hear people going to flea markets is also another good place!

    Oh I super love your top it’s perfectly merged by the colors of your top and shirt and your nude sandals as well. Lovely tips at the end as well, I usually do wash the clothes that I buy before using them but I heard some people don’t and I really find it bizarre.
