For as long as I can remember, secondhand clothing has influenced my style. It helped me learn that menswear is made WAY better than womenswear and can last longer, every time I step into a thrift store I head right to the men’s section. It taught me that jackets made before the 2000’s are impeccable and I continue to buy more even though I own 20+. Sometimes I will just find a truly unique style and get it to rip it apart and see how it was made. Most importantly it has showed me how much clothing is out there, endless and endless amounts, SO many incredible pieces are just waiting to be yours. Now if you aren’t down for the hunt, I get that, so I have compiled 12 businesses that are doing the hunting to bring you the best of the best thrifted finds.
Each one has their own unique style and brand, so you just need to find which one best suits your style and follow them. The other thing that I love about thrifting is that it is all about timing. That moment you walk into the store, or check your Instagram and your fav shop has listed an epic piece, and you snag it. I feel all my favourite thrifted pieces were destined to be with me, making them extra special.
