I know that there are some people who don’t like the idea of wearing clothes that someone else has worn. But, for me, I try not to focus on that as much as the price and the uniqueness. Sure, there are days when I know exactly what I want and I just want to be able to walk into a store and purchase the item in the exact size and color. But, then there are days when I am looking for something off the beaten path. Or, I don’t want to pay retail for it, knowing full well that I can find it for cheaper. Or, perhaps there are things that I want but have no hope of affording–like name brand items. I can hardly fathom paying $40 for a blouse at Ann Taylor, but I won’t hesitate to pay $6.00 for one at the Goodwill.
Now, I do have my standards. I won’t buy certain items from the Goodwill. Like undergarments, socks, or bathing suits. But, the rest is pretty much fair game.
