We’ve been secondhand shopping for as long as we can remember and can easily name what we consider the best thrift store finds. Since we’re in the fashion business, they’re all clothing related of course. The following are the 5 items we jump for joy for when we see them, whether it’s across our store selling counter when we’re buying or on the sales floor when we’re shopping.
Outwear can be an expensive investment, whether a coat, jacket or blazer. With the same budget for a basic mall brand piece, you can upgrade to a designer or higher-quality one when you buy secondhand.
Speaking of higher-quality pieces, we always keep an eye out for premium textiles like cashmere that can cost a small fortune when new. Trust us: a collection of cashmere pieces is definitely within reach with a thrift store budget.
We know you have a unique style all your own and can spot a one-of-a-kind vintage piece from a mile away. We’re the same! We look for pieces that have aged just right, whether in a classic cut, retro silhouette or quirky fit.
Oh denim, you are our daily go-to. Nothing beats finding a denim jacket or pair of jeans in that label you’ve been hesitant to splurge on. You just found it secondhand, so now’s the time to snag that deal!
Sure, we have more handbags than there are days in the week, but when you come across one in a great shape, in quality leather or in the current trend, you can’t help but pick it up. At thrift and resale store prices, you know you won’t regret it.
