And I want you more than a new pair of shoes...

Welcome to Thrifting 101!!
This is a quick guide to make your thrifting experience beneficial. Follow these tips and I guarantee you'll be a thrift master in no time!

  1. Choose a thrift store of your choice (I prefer the Goodwill)
  2. Wear comfortable clothing & under garments 
  3. GO ALONE! (you don't want to be fighting with your friends over something you saw first)
  4. Bring hand sanitizer 
  5. Plan to be there for hours - bring a snack :-)
  6. Be patient & thorough - browse section by section, isle by isle, & garment by garment
  7. Keep an open mind & open eye
  8. Try EVERYTHING on! Remember items are NEVER what they appear to be. You must fit each garment to your particular style & body type. If you like the fabric or print, buy it, don't second guess yourself.
  9. NEVER STEAL FROM A THRIFT STORE!!! smh
  10. Visit the accessory section - thrift stores have awesome belts, glasses, pocketbooks, & luggage. (I stay away from shoes & hats, sanitary issues)
  11. #1 rule WASH ALL ITEMS BEFORE YOU WEAR THEM!! 

I hope you found this guide helpful!

Peace & Dopeness!
