As the days grow longer and the weather gets warmer, we “thrift shop fashionistas” know that it’s time to score stylish summer finds at our favorite, second-hand haunts.
My successful thrift shop hauls prove time and time again that looking good does not have to cost you an arm and a leg.
I discovered this selection of pretty, sleeveless, summer frocks at Salvation Army and St. Francis Thrift Shops on the Upper West Side in Manhattan, at prices you won’t believe!
Now, veteran thrift-shoppers know that scoring great deals can require hard work.
It takes planning, scanning, editing, organization and most of all, resolve.
Make a pact with yourself to only buy what you really need or really like–for the maximum price that you are willing to pay. No more!
Get Ready for Summer Parties!
These gently-worn picks were in excellent condition and cost $12.99 or less. Some were even as low as $3.99 and still quite cute! You can’t beat that!
Let’s face it, one woman’s trash, is another woman’s treasure.
These were my favorite picks selected from rows and rows of clothes.
Reduce. Reuse. Recycle. Reward!
It always feels great to reduce, reuse and recycle.
So clean out your closets.
Donate what you don’t use anymore to your favorite thrift shops or charities.
Then reward yourself with a “thrift fashion find” and rock your new frock, eco-style!
Judicious shopping at thrift stores is good for your wallet as well as the environment!
