I really want to buy items at thrift shores, but is it gross?

I feel like I always see people getting super awesome cute things from thrift stores but the thrift stores by my house don’t have anything that fits me or that’s even cute so I have yet to have a successful thrift store visit

It definitely isn’t gross! Be prepared to rifle around, there won’t be stacks of all the same garment, you need to look at every item!
If you feel like it’s a little bit gross just wash the clothes a few times before you wear them!
Personally I love thrift stores- guilt free shopping.

the clothes must look clean -no stains. watch out for tears in the fabric. wash before you put on.
try a different neighborhood if you dont want to be seen around yours walking in one.
start with something small, like accessories – rings, earrings, necklaces?

not at all! some store even carry new items. just make sure that whenever you buy thrifted items, check for rips, holes, or stains. most of the time you should be in the clear because stores pre-screen items before they put them on the racks, but you never know!

It usually depends on the store and their policies. If you want to get into thrifting, try to find a higher-end consignment shop in your area. They usually make sure that items are practically new.
