Thrift Shopping

So I am new to thrift and secondhand shopping but I’m now a convert!

The biggest secret is going when they first open and if possible on a Monday or Tuesday

I had gone browsing before but since I had more of a rigid work schedule I would go after 5 on a weeknight or on weekends and all the good stuff was already gone.

So far I have gotten a really cute laundry sign for my laundry room, a cute picture for my entry, a shoe shine I have in my family room, a key hanger for my entry (but I broke it! oops), and a children’s Columbia windbreaker. The windbreaker was $6 and looked brand new but it had a child’s name inside so whoever owned it couldn’t sell it to a children’s clothing consignment store like Kid-To-Kid or Carousel Kids. I looked on Amazon and the cheapest Columbia Windbreakers are $24! I knew $6 was a good deal but I had to check and see how good a deal it was. In the store I checked all the zippers to make sure they worked properly and checked the seams for rips. I love thrifting so much now I am careful to only go when I truly can afford to go.
