I hate paying for jeans .
It’s visceral to me. I don’t accept that a basic like jeans amputate my budget by 60, 80 or even 120 dollars. No. So, maybe you guessed it, I’m really a fan of thrift stores.
I enjoy searching the aisles for scraps, an activity that is almost akin to hunting, in some cases. Finding my size, checking the garment for any apparent flaws, making sure it has aged well, and thanking heaven when I see the price on the tag. I like it, good.
It is with this in mind that I sometimes go to thrift stores.
Upon entering, it’s hard not to be impressed by the amount of clothing, shoes and boots, handbags and other accessories, which are often very well classified. Great! Hunting just got easier.
During my most recent getaway: After 1h30 of going back and forth in the aisles and trying on, how much is my bill when I leave the thrift store? Three pairs of jeans and two sweaters for a modest $35.
Need a costume with Halloween coming up? Do not hesitate to take a look at the sections dedicated to disguises. There is something for all tastes and all ages!
In closing, I leave you with this top 5 good reasons to buy in thrift stores:
- The clothes have already been washed, so no bad surprises.
- The price!
- Just because someone gets rid of it doesn’t mean it’s no longer good.
- The possibility of buying a garment that stands out, either because it is very vintage , or because it is no longer sold. Almost a unique piece every time, what!
- The trouser bottoms are often already made ;).
Happy minimal shopping!
