Thrifting: Where, When, and How

Thrifting is the equivalent to a fashion scavenger hunt. You never know what you’re going to find. Hidden gems are located in the many racks of our local thrift stores. The aim of the game, patients. We must take our time to explore each wall of the thrift store and blindly peruse our pot of gold.

Are you a thrifting newbie? In need of a rebirth? Get a pen and paper; time to take notes.
