Thrifting & Vintage Shop Tips


Not only is thrifting easier on your wallet & the planet, it's also just really cool. Sure, that may be my opinion, but it's one I wish everyone would adopt. We produce so much clothing waste for no good reason. By going to a thrift or vintage shop you have the opportunity to be eco-conscious and find some really fun, unique, one-of-a-kind stuff. Stuff that when you wear it, you feel really cool too.

I know that thrifting is not always the most glamorous of activities (seriously, always come supplied with hand-sanitizer and a good attitude) and it can be a little intimidating. After all, thrift shops are usually categorized in two ways: type of clothing and size. Beyond that, its a grab-bag of fabrics, decades, brands, colors, patterns, etc. Well never to fear! I've outlined my tips for thrifting, so the next time you go- you can shop with confidence and go find that diamond in the rough!
