If there were a section on standard resumes entitles, “Super Abilities,” thrifting would be listed below it. Before Macklemore made it popular, thrifting was all I knew, and throughout the years, I was able to cultivate a special eye for one-of-a kind pieces straight from your grandmother’s closet. Goodwill, Salvation Army, and even local flea markets are all filled with hidden treasures waiting to be found, just as long as you have the patience to discover them. I personally believe that thrifting is an underrated art form; it takes training to flow through racks of clothing, analyze each piece and discover the explicit details that make that article of clothing a masterpiece. Thank goodness for all the individuals generous enough to share their beloved possessions with complete strangers lol. I’ll tell you, there’s nothing like finding an original piece that you know only YOU will have.
Here are a few pieces that I have recently picked up from the local flea market. Tell me what you think!
