I have been thrifting since I was really young. Thrifting and garage saling was a thing I did with my grandma. I’ve always had to have to hand-me-downs. Thrifting was my “expensive” shopping instead of just getting hand me downs from my cousins. I love it so much. Now I thrift so much that it’s become a problem. When I go thrifting it’s a way to reminisce [my grandmother and I’s] time together. I love [vintage] clothes and you can find some really different things there. I don’t have a preference [of certain clothing to shop for] if I like it, I get it. I have skirts that are way too big for me, but I [alter it to fit me]. I love [that it’s become a trend]. It’s a great way to save money. If you find something at the store that you really like, you can wait just a little bit and find it so much cheaper at the thrift store, especially at goodwill. One of the things that I want to do when I have more free time, is thrift flipping. I would like to take clothes from the thrift store, make them my own [by altering it], and then selling it. I have a shed by my house and once everything gets cleared out of it, I want to put all my clothes in it and make it like a mini thrift store. Even if you go to the thrift store and it’s not your size, you can still find a way to make it work. I never pass up a big sweater. There’s always a small chance that it will be the greatest outfit in your wardrobe. Be open-minded about thrifting.
