I don’t know if shopping at consignment stores officially counts as thrifting.
Here in Texas there are ALOT of women’s consignment stores. The prices are usually at least 75% off what you would pay retail. When I went this past Saturday, almost every other item I picked up still had the original tag on it!!
I have NO problem letting others pay full price for clothes/shoes/accessories and then sell them to me for cheap when they’re through with them! Not only does it save me much $$$$, but I also think about it as a clothes-recycling system :)
I found all of these shoes at consignment stores in the past 6 months. They were barely worn, and one pair still had the original stickers on the sole. Score!
