I’m Addicted to Thrifting: Here are My Tricks to Finding Hidden Gems


Like most people, I used to be skeptical about thrifting. Are the clothes clean? Will people judge me for wearing second-hand clothes? Doesn’t it make sense to pay a little more to buy the clothes new? These are all questions that went through my mind before thrifting became a straight-up addiction.

I went to Value Village for the first time earlier this year and I was caught off-guard by the thrilling feeling that comes with searching for something that’s just right. When I bought something, it felt like snagging an incredible deal, especially if the item was still in good condition. I found myself going back on a weekly basis just to see what was new.

Thrifting definitely takes strategy and I’ve learned a few things along the way. If you’re looking for a hidden gem buried deep inside the racks of your local thrift store, watch the latest episode of Made You Look where I explain how I snatched my most treasured finds.
