Thrift in the City

April 17, 2019

 

Anyone who knows me, knows that one of my favorite things, is to find secret treasures, when it comes to shopping. I found a new second-hand store that I want to share with you. And I'm going to concentrate on a series of blogs dedicated toThrift Shopping, which I strongly support for several reasons.  

  1. Saves you money

  2. Designer discoveries for a deal

  3. Saves the environment

  4. Unique one-of-a-kind outfits

  5. Earn money by selling your clothes

  6. SAVES the Environment

Fast fashion has been great, especially for those of us on a budget.  We can get the latest styles worn by iconic YouTubers or celebs for cheap prices. But, and this is a big but...fast fashion is one of the biggest polluters in the world, second only to big oil.  Ouch! So take a minute to let that sink in before you go to Forever 21 or Zaful and buy that shirt for $5 that you'll only wear once and then throw out.  

 

Thank goodness my generation, Gen Z, is embracing second-hand apparel which is projected to be bigger than fast fashion within the decade according to Thredup's 2019 Resale Report.  The report says that more than one in three Gen Z shoppers will buy used clothing this year, versus less than one in five boomers or Gen X consumers.  It's because our generation has interest in the environment and ethical shopping.  

 

So folks, my latest thrift store discovery is  Buffalo Exchange.  There are 6 in New York, several in California, there’s one in D.C. and then locations all around the country.  Click here to find a store nearest you. 

Here are some of my thrift store finds at Buffalo Exchange in Chelsea New York. 

 

White Long Sleeve Cut-off with Elastic at Sleeves and Waste for $15

 

Sheer black long sleeve cut off with silver stars for $8

 

 LF Stores Top Normally $95 on sale. I got it for $10

 

 

Sequined strapless top for $6

 

Snakeskin print long sleeve cut off for $8

 

So if you add that up, I spent $47 for 5 tops.  Good on the wallet and the environment.
