Ok, I’ll admit it. I’m a sucker for thrift stores. Given the choice of shopping at the mall or sifting through racks of vintage clothing I’ll take the old stuff any day. Now I realize they’re not for everyone—but I also know I’m in good company. Secondhand stores are widely popular these days and people of all ages, demographics and income levels proudly frequent them in search of hidden treasures.
There used to be a sort of stigma attached to thrift stores, but thankfully any negative label is long gone. Somewhere along the lines it became cool to shop secondhand. And that’s a good thing.
