Second time around in vogue again
One of the favorite parts of thrifting is finding high-end brands that are gently used, or sometimes even new with the tags still attached. Prices in second hand shops are often 25% (or even less) than the retail price of the goods. And don't think that the store owners aren't making money. I work with a second hand furniture store that has great profit margins on their stuff!
