Vintage Thrift Finds

Vintage+Thrift+Finds

Unlike regular shopping, thrifting helps save money and waste less clothes.

 

The concept of thrifting is to repurpose clothes so they don’t go to waste. Anyone who is thinking of getting rid of clothes is free to either throw them away or do the selfless action of donating them to a local thrifting place. This allows families and struggling people to buy clothes for a cheaper price than their retailed price.

Thrifting has been jumping back on trend as teenagers love to go there and find “vintage goodies” to add to their closets, helps teenagers manage their money better as it is the same as regular shopping, only with already worn clothes and for a cheaper. Some people can even feel free to DIY their thrifted finds because the price they paid wasn’t high. It can even bring out the creative side in you. You get home with a piece of clothing outside your comfort zone, super eager to cut into your new clothes or change its color to fit your style.

At those stores, clothes usually don’t come in multiple pairs. A shirt that gets donated would not come with multiple copies of the same shirt. This is what makes thrifting so fun and special. The exciting feeling customers feel when they find a unique piece of clothing nobody else can get is what makes people love thrifting. It is truly rewarding to find a shirt that would be worth 50$ at retail price, to be only 6$.

Thrifting is not only used for clothes, but also for household items. It can be really useful if you’re buying your first house and don’t have enough money for brand-new decorations and/or clutter items. Buying donated items can be pretty useful and helps you to save money. You can later use the money you saved on new furniture for a change. Other things such as shoes and baby clothes can be found in those stores. If someone you know has old baby clothes they want to get rid of, donating to a local thrifting place would be ideal as you could be helping a struggling mother.
