2. go with a plan (an idea of what you’re looking for – or else you will be overwhelmed!)
3. go with someone – they can help you decide if your buys are practical or impulsive
4. explore other sections (mens, children), and other sizes
5. just put everything into the basket and filter after
6. check the rack by the fitting room – people grabbed those items to try on for a reason so maybe some of them will be appealing to you
i went to a thrift store today and i found a michael kors belt in the mens section for only $2!!!posted over 5 years ago
A big thrift store lesson is that sizing now and sizing thirty+ years ago are very different, so don’t be afraid to look at things that are marked as being a couple sizes bigger than you are. Also, don’t be afraid to look in the mens section of thrift stores, there are usually really cute cardigans and jakets hidden there.posted over 5 years ago

I’ve only started shopping at thrift/vintage stores and I must say it is hard. It takes a lot of patience to do so and you can easily get overwhelmed by the amount of clothing in the store. Thrift clothes shopping is truly an art.I’d say if you are going thrift shopping, it’s best to have a goal or a list of things you want to look for.
Keep an open mind as you can always have things taken in or hemmed.
Also, when your thrift shopping, wear something you can easily take off (if you get what I mean). There is a chance that there may be no dressing rooms at all. Wearing a tank top, flats, and a pair of leggings can allow you to try on several tops, bottoms and shoes in store.
