For Serious Thrifters Only

For Serious Thrifters Only

Thrifting is like a rollercoaster. There’s highs, there’s lows, and there’s a lot of strange kids screaming behind you. If this has never happened to you while you’re thrifting, you might be doing it wrong.

This post is for all the serious thrifters out there and what we go through for the thrill of the hunt.

From waking up early on a sale day to scoring an item at half price, here’s a humorous look at the many emotions you might recognize from your thrifting trip:

When the thrift store has a sale day…

    I was recently in the thrift and saw a shirt with a cool pattern. I stopped to take a deep breath before checking the size, then preceded to do an internal victory dance.
