Bought: Pleated Skirt
Price: Under $8
Store: Goodwill, Concord
I don't know what stage of thrifting you're starting at, but as a general rule of thumb, in order to get some amazing buys, you need to actually get your booty out there and shop!
I know there tends to be a tarnished stigma surrounding thrift stores.
They're dirty! And foul! And rodent infested!
Let's not be ridiculous.
There are actually some really clean stores out there! Little known fact: most people wash their clothes before passing them on to the thrift store of their choice. And more importantly, you can always wash whatever you buy!
As a matter of fact, I would highly recommend it, even insist on it.
So... Friendly Bit of Advice #1...Be Brave!
And bring hand sanitizer with you.
