5 Fun Reasons to Shop at a Thrift Store –  #3 COSTUMES!

For people who favor shopping malls and department stores, a Thrift Store may be a little scary.  After all, the clothing items are used and there’s no telling who wore them or what they were doing when they did so.  The fact is the clothes in thrift stores are all inspected to make sure they’re in good enough shape to go on the rack, so you don’t need to worry about threadbare or tattered items.  Thrift stores also offer a bounty of second hand furniture, toys and games, old records and appliances.
As if that wasn’t exciting enough, we’ve got 3 more reasons to try out your local thrift store. (Deerfield Thrift;)
