Description

Looking for just the right outfit for a big party? Or maybe you want to build some funky shelves for your bedroom. Instead of heading for the mall, consider checking out a thrift store. It's a great way to grab some awesome bargains. Thrift shopping started out as a way for charitable organizations to earn money for their missions by selling a variety of items at reasonable prices. Over the decades, it's become a hot recreational activity for all kinds of people, including celebrities! Thrifting opportunities range from traditional thrift stores, consignment shops, vintage and antique stores, flea markets and garage sales, to auctions, estate sales, and online sites such as eBay, Etsy, and Poshmark. You can find just about anything: clothing, jewelry, accessories, sporting goods, vinyl records, CDs, DVDs, furniture, home goods, books, artwork, toys, gift ideas, even cars. The sky's the limit! Check out Thrift Shopping to discover how to thrift and where to thrift. Learn how to judge quality, when and where to shop for bargains, and how to organize your own yard sale. Get tips for upcycling your thrift-shopping finds for your own personal use or to resell them. With a little imagination and not a whole lot of money, you can find--or make--unique treasures while going green with your shopping habits.
