Thrift-store shoppers beware!
Nothing beats snagging clothes at a deep discount, especially if there’s a coveted designer item you’re eyeing, and thrift shops and vintage stores are veritable treasure troves for scores like these. But we’re here to remind you that it doesn’t necessarily work for everything.
No matter how much cheaper something is than the original price, you should always ask yourself if the cost is worth paying. There’s a significant difference between getting hundreds of dollars off a vintage leather jacket and buying a pair of worn out leggings, which you can easily get brand new by spending just a little bit more. We’ve done the dirty work (literally) and researched the items you should always avoid buying used.
