Now, just so you won't think that I'm exaggerating about just how fabulous they were, everywhere I turned, someone was commenting on how much they liked them. As a matter of fact, one of my girlfriends loved them so much that I left the event with her flip flops while she left in my GenE.R.ation heels.
Of course, I could have played it off like they were hundred dollar imports, but I didn't. I guess it's an occupational hazard that comes with being a thrift store/yard sale/Goodwill shopper, because for every compliment I received it was not a "thank you" they got in return, but an "I got them for three dollars!" response!
See, that's the thing about getting a deal -- it's not so much what you get that brings you joy, but how much you paid for it!
So, in honor of all things frugal and fabulous, I decided to provide you with six tips on how to shop at a thrift store/yard sale/Goodwill/Army Surplus store without looking like it (we'll save consignment shops for another time). Trust me: The only thing you have to lose is your pride... which brings me to Tip #1:
Most thrift stores get in new items on a daily basis -- so if variety is your spice of life, the earlier you go, the better. Also, if you're looking for accessories, you may want a clerk to point you in that direction first. People have a lot less patience going through piles of clothes than a line laid out of shoes, purses and belts.
