Secrets To Finding Thrift Store Fashion At Goodwill


Thrift Store fashion is all about finding unique items for less and feeling accomplished when you discover a great fashion find. Fashionistas love to scour the racks for designer tags and unique vintage clothing. The great thing about shopping for fashion at a thrift store is the variety of styles and seasons available all in one place. Read on to learn the secrets to finding thrift store fashion at Goodwill.

What are some fashion items that shoppers have scored at Goodwill?

Ask anyone who shops at Goodwill and they could go on and on about all the great finds they’ve uncovered. We’ve heard of shoppers finding designer handbags with the tags still on, and even a pair of Louis Vuitton shoes.

What should Goodwill shoppers look for?

Keep an eye out for quality brands that are normally more expensive when you buy them brand new. When you find them at Goodwill you are paying a quarter of the price for something that’s still in great condition and still has many more “wears” left.

Here are three tips to keep in mind the next time you’re shopping for fashion at Goodwill:  

  1. Don’t be afraid to try on things that might not be your size. Every brand has a different fit, and a large shirt could add a loose-fitted option to your wardrobe.
  2. Go in with a plan. What are you on the hunt for? A good jean jacket or a summery dress? You may find it or you may not, but at least have a few ideas in mind.
  3. Don’t always go looking for designer or high-end brands. Keep an open mind and look for styles that stand out to you. Look more at the quality than the brand.

From denim-on-denim to monochromatic or summery florals, there are so many great fashion trends just waiting to be discovered at Goodwill. You never know what you might find.
