About Thrift Stores
Thrift store items are subjected to far less scrutiny because they are strictly donated; thus, you will find everything from clothing, accessories and dishes to baking utensils, books, games, furniture and more. Thrift stores often contain some treasures but the experience is overwhelming for some because the sites are overloaded and somewhat disorderly at times.
Thrift stores are often launched to help with a charity or nonprofit organization. Prices are often very good, but remember, the quality of the item you purchase may not be as good or as long-lived as purchasing it new or from a consignment store. Thrift stores will have a set price for most items. For example, all men’s pants might be $3.99, while all books are $1. Items are not priced based on retail cost or brand labels. This can be wonderful if you are retail savvy and understand the costs of various brands, labels or styles. You can find good deals at thrift stores and your money spent will go on to help others in a time of need.
