The Best Ways to Score Cool Vintage Clothes

The 411 on thrift store finds

Looking for a crazy Halloween costume? Trying to find a cute outfit on a tight budget? Then look no further than your local thrift store. From designer jeans to ‘80s shades, these stores have ya covered from head to toe.


1. Keep an open mind

Yes, someone probably wore these clothes before you. But where else can you find $100 jeans for $10? Or an entire outfit for under $20? Wash your finds when you get home and they’ll be as good as new.


2. Shop early and shop often

Thrift store inventory changes constantly and the early bird definitely gets the worm (or the Dooney & Burke bag in this case). Ask the cashier when new items hit the shelves so you know when to browse.


3. Be patient

Unfortunately, the perfect jeans aren’t going to jump out at you. Sometimes you have to dig…literally. But if you take your time, you’ll be rewarded with a great deal.


4. Check it out

Give the skirt you are eyeing the Inspector Gadget treatment with a thorough once-over. Look for holes, stains and loose threads. Make sure the zipper works and try it on to see if it fits.


5. Get creative

Shopping at a thrift store allows you to mix and match styles without breaking the bank. So if you’ve been wondering if you can pull off a tweed jacket, now’s the perfect time to find out. Plus you can find some unique accessories.


6. Have fun

This is the most important rule. Think of thrift store shopping as bargain hunting at its best. It can be quite the adventure. Plus, most stores give back to the community, so you’re doing a good deed, too. It just doesn’t get any better than that!


Oh, and one more thing...
7. Ask about sales
Most thrift stores offer coupons and have special discount days, which means you could save even more on already ridiculous deals.
