  • BOTH-lol. I have things that belonged to my mother & even my great grandmothers. I search high n low for vintage clothing at both thrift/consignment malls & estate sales.....I love the craftsmanship of vintage--its just hard to find in my size. I shop almost exclusively at Thrift Stores for myself---I find soooooo many good things, why shop anywhere else?

  • Yes. Before I had my daughter I used to love thrift store shopping. I would do it for hours. Now I don't have a lot of time but I buy her clothes at Goodwill.

  • I did obsesively while living in ca, but now that I left due to the military moving us, I cant find the same great finds I did back home. So I wear my old finds and incorporate them into my current woredrobe. I do find a lot of great jelwery here at the thrift stores, so that is a perk.

  • i love shopping at the thrift stores, sometimes you'll score and find a couple nice peices. i only go to vintage shops if i reallly want somthing i have been looking for, cause they jack thier prices way up , and with the way things always come back in style, i'll buy some things at the regular stores and incorporate it in with my vintage
