"Thrift Store Score" will feature some of the outstanding finds that I have obtained while thrift store shopping. The reasons vary as to why, and what I consider to be an outstanding score.
Some background info: Why do I thrift?
I've thought long and hard as to why I enjoy thrifting so much. There are several main reasons:
I prefer vintage pieces not only because I like the style, but also the fact that they are not easily obtained. That means I won't see several people wearing the same exact pieces that I have. Personally, I do not like to wear or purchase pieces that are extremely accessible. I like possessing rare clothing, and thrifting helps me to accomplish that. Also, vintage pieces hold history. I am fascinated in wonderment about who made the item, in what places has it been, and who was it's original owner.
I prefer not to spend a lot of money on quality clothing. Sometimes it is necessary, because I appreciate certain fits and cuts in my clothing, and at times that cannot be obtained on the cheap. But there are times when it is not necessary, and I can obtain the premium quality that I am looking for outside of high end retail stores. Additionally, as I mentioned previously, I prefer rare/hard to find clothing items.
I am thrilled by the hunt. In what way? Well, it is almost like a sport for me. I enjoy walking into a thrift store, sifting through what may seem to be piles of refuse, and finding a rare piece in the midst. It could be vintage, it could be brand new, it could be custom made. For one reason or another, it stands out to me as outstanding, and I feel a sense of victory in obtaining it-LOL!
For these reasons, and more, no matter what, I truly am a thrift store shopper for life.
