When I shop in thrift, I like to make a plan working from one end of the city to the other, it can be harder work but lots of stores have nothing in them the day you visit. You never know what you’re going to find, you need to go through the racks piece by piece looking at the labels and the garment quality. It’s important when buying in these stores to do an inspection of the piece of clothing you want to buy ~ look for holes, stains or other needed repairs. I can mend most things myself, but if you can’t work out if it’s worth taking to be fixed some things just aren’t.
As people start to make more conscious choices about their clothing thrift stores are becoming cool and economical. More and more people seem to be shopping there and hopefully donating as well. This is great the more people involved in recycling and reusing the better.
