Fashion Face off: Secondhand vs. Retail
Obviously, anything we reuse is going to help our carbon footprints stay miniscule. Let’s face it, we need all the help we can get with keeping our earth up for our kids and their generations to come.
Have you been to a Goodwill lately? They literally sell everything at flat prices. Tops $2-$3. pants and jeans $4-$5. Outdoor wear $5-$6. Shoes $4-$8. I am not aware of any other retailer you can walk in and get those prices.
There is a good chance you will come across an item you wanted last season directly from retailer that was just to pricey to buy, so you never got what you actually wanted. It’s likely to be for sale pre-owned.
Now you have to be a regular shopper and know the days a thrift store such as goodwill puts out there newer inventory because designer name brands go fast!
But they are there all the time, I have even purchased Tory Burch brands, Lilly Pulitzer for less than $15 on Poshmark or ebay.
Stores like Macy’s, Loft, Ann Taylor, Target donate on a regular basis to Goodwill. They are usually returned items or last season that didn’t sale. They are still mint condition with tags attached. No one is going to know if it came from goodwill or Macys. why not get it for 90% less the retail value.
