ToniOnThrifting – Thrift Shopping Made Simple

August 17th is National Thrift Shop Day

August 17th is National Thrift Shop Day. We all know that I think it should be a national holiday. ๐Ÿ™‚ I love my thrift shopping – both shopping and writing about it. I take great enjoyment out of the “hunt” and I have met some remarkable people along the way. Please remember when you shop My Sister’s Place, Goodwill, Salvation Army, Habitat For Humanity, Angel Street, Cauz For Pawz, Housing Works, Humane Society of New Rochelle and countless others, you are supporting PHENOMENAL causes and helping change countless lives. So on National Thrift Shop Day, please go out and shop, you will be supporting someone in need and helping the environment!! Every piece of clothing purchased second-hand means one less new one produced.

So in honor of National Thrift Shop Day, here are my top reasons why I love thrift shopping:

You are more than likely supporting a charity that helps people in need.

You are helping to save the environment.

Thrift shopping allows you to create your own style, be unique and try different things.

You are saving money.

Vintage pieces can make an outfit look spectacular.

You can decorate your home inexpensively.

You can housewares at a fraction off the cost.

You meet some amazing people along the way.

Thrift stores have sales too.

andโ€ฆ.

The enjoyment I get from thrift shopping especially when I find a really special piece.

Happy National Thrift Shop Day!!

Humane Society Thrift Shop Revisited — November 19, 2015

Humane Society Thrift Shop Revisited

Is this thrift shop popular or what? I revisited last week and it is even more popular than ever before. They temporarily lost their dressing room because they have received so many donations over the last few weeks. The funny part is that they have expanded space in the front of the store but they still need more room. The houseware section is bigger AND BETTER than ever and the clothing, well, there is tons of it ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ . The prices are reasonable, the selection ENORMOUS and Donna is just one of the nicest people ever and the shop has pretty reasonable prices.

Everyone that was in the shop while I was there purchased something. I think that that is a powerful statement and says a lot about the shop. There is a lot to go through but I promise you it is worth it. The racks are spilling over with clothes, literally spilling over with clothes.

The prices are phenomenal and well worth the trip โ€“ I definitely thought it was worth a revisit and mentioning again. And I still have to go back because I want to see the holiday windows!!!!

Patience is the key in this shop!!!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

There is a Municipal Parking on Huguenot Street and Centre Street but donโ€™t forget โ€“ you have to feed the meters.

According to the website nationalcalendarday – August 17th is National Thrift Shop Day. We all know that I think it should be a national holiday. ๐Ÿ™‚  I love my thrift shopping – both shopping and writing about it. While just this morning I scored a Ralph Lauren denim skirt brand new (with tags on it) for $2.49 in Goodwill :).   It really can be fun shopping for bargains like these. I take great enjoyment out of the “hunt” and I have met some remarkable people along the way.
