I like buying my shirts from thrift stores. Whenever I buy them new I never know if they're going to shrink or stay the same size. With thrift store shirts, they're preworn and prewashed so I can be assured they won't shrink! Plus they're 2/3rd's cheaper. Win win.

Jeans. I'll find $70 jeans for $5. My friend got her really nice prom dress there for $3 while the rest of my friends spent $300. There's always something nice there, you just gotta look.

I can usually find some cool, old soundtracks on vinyl (Top Gun, Mission Impossible, A Clockwork Orange to name a few) for under a dollar. I've found a pair of studded converses for $8. Then most of any clothing I buy is usually bought to be cut up into something else to wear.

The couple of thriftstores here suck. Everything is old and outdated. The pants are like my leftover glittery pants with butterflies along the side from the 90's, and the dresses all have ugly floral print. I do like Plato's Closet though. A lot of it looks a bit outdated-ish too, but I've gotten some really cute stuff there for really cheap.

my boyfriend has an affinity for Animal shirts. Usually we can go to a Savers or Good Will and find some quality shit for $1-$5 each.

I just like giving FOB a hard time. I've never been a fan of theirs, but they get lots of respect on this board, so I was trying to level the playing field

There are a ton of places to find cool stuff in Nashville. OP, do you know of any good spots in Delaware? My parents live in Newark and the only place I know of is the Goodwill by the movie theatre haha.

http://www.thethriftshopper.com/city/Newark/DE/1.htm This site is great for finding stores near you. I used it last weekend to find some stores down in Rehoboth/Lewes, and it was awesome. There was this really great store called Encore that had awesome stuff.

I don't have any cool thrift shops around me. The Goodwill here is pretty decent, but that's really the only close secondhand store that I have.

I live in Newark too, the only good place I know of is the Goodwill off Kirkwood Highway. I've found some awesome Christmas sweaters there.

I've heard the one in Smyrna is great as well. I'll have to give the Kirkwood Highway one a try.

The pants are like my leftover glittery pants with butterflies along the side from the 90's, and the dresses all have ugly floral print. I do like Plato's Closet though. A lot of it looks a bit outdated-ish too, but I've gotten some really cute stuff there for really cheap.

I found a pair of Oxford lace up heels there for eight dollars, and my dumbass didn't buy them. I will live with the regret for a very long time.

Jesus Christ I am jealous. Best vinyl I've found so far at my local Goodwill is a Marvin Gaye record, haha.

I've always wanted to. I tried a couple of weeks ago, I paid for a book and the lady there gave me the ugliest look ever, she was all like is that your car outside? Bitch.

Why would she be questioning you about your car? haha.

But don't let that deter you from bargain-hunting. I never buy anything for full price.
