Thrifting has been one of my favorite hobbies that I've enjoyed for so long now. I love hunting for vintage sportswear, denim and even home decor sometimes. I make it a plan to check out my local shops at least twice a week and if there's any vintage/thrift events in the city, I try my best not to miss out on it. I know it can get overwhelming at times with racks and racks of clothing, even times when you don't find anything so I rounded up my top 10 tips that you can take with you on your next thrift spree.  

1. KNOW WHAT YOU'RE LOOKING FOR

2. GIVE YOURSELF PLENTY OF TIME / DON'T RUSH

3. GO EARLY! IT'S TRUE, THE EARLY BIRD GETS THE WORM

4. GO ALONE OR WITH SOMEONE WHO ALSO ENJOYS THRIFTING

5. TRY ON AND CHECK FOR FLAWS ON CLOTHING(rips, stains, ect)

6. CHECK OUT DIFFERENT SHOPS IN YOUR CITY

7. LOOK THROUGH EVERY SECTION

8. DON'T BUY IT IF YOU DON'T LOVE IT

9. IF YOU CAN, NEGOTIATE 

10. BE INSPIRED
