Reserve plenty of time
The first tip of any kind of thrift shopping is to go into the process with an open mind and plenty of time on your hands. This is because it takes time to look through the racks of clothes, which can oftentimes be disorganized and messy. If you can, avoid going into the store with expectations of finding specific garments.
Think beyond the brand
While it can be tempting to snatch up a garment because it has a reputable name brand, there are other things that matter more than the brand name. Make sure the garment is in good condition, fits well, and is something you actually like and will wear.
When dealing with a piece you like or love, but have an ill-fit, consider if the piece would benefit from alteration. You can better prepare yourself by bringing clips or pins with you while you shop. This way you can get a feel for how pieces will look after some alterations right there in the store.
Don’t be fooled by a low price tag
We are conditioned to be attracted by a low price tag, but no matter how low, if you’re not going to end up wearing the garment, it’s a waste of your money. As a rule, stick to pieces that you truly love and will definitely wear.
