Also a $6 Iceblue prom-style dress I picked up for my sister for a wedding we were attending – she looked like gorgeous – from an opshop three doors down from the other one…

deannasays :" In England we have charity shops, but we don’t really call it thrifting.
Although you do come across thrift stores, it’s so weird."
What do you consider the difference between thirft and charity? When I say thrifted I mean a charity shop like goodwill or St Vincent Depaul. I don’t consider shopping at vintage, used or consignment shops thrifting AT ALL. If you bought it at buffalo exchange you DID NOT thrift it. Thrift Shops are shops that get their stock through donations and give all the proceeds to charity. Shops that have buyers for their merch and sell stuff for personal profit are not thrift stores.posted over 2 years ago

i find the best luck when thrifting with shoes, lucky me. i’ve found multiple pairs of boots in blacks and browns of vintage styles (some combat lace ups, some heeled, some cowboy boots) all for $4 at my local goodwill. the latest awesome pair was a pair of vintage guess black cowboy boots from the 70s in almost perfect condition!
i also love the kids section because i’m pretty small. i search for band shirts and fitted sweatshirts in that section. yesterday i got an 80’s miami dolphins kids sweatshirt for $3!
