This evening we’re sharing our latest treasures found at our local Salvation Army store. We were in and out in 20 minutes and snagged these pieces to mix back into our current wardrobe. We didn’t go in looking for leopard print but the first top caught our eye and next thing you know we’re styling a trend story!
When shopping second-hand, trust your eye but be flexible. In other words, be confident in your knowledge of what best suits you. Scan racks for “your” colours, cuts and fabrications are really important. But don’t go in with a rigid idea of what you want. Murphys Law means it won’t be there. Be open to what you might find and prepare to leave empty-handed if nothing suits on that particular day, it may be a different scenario when you revisit in a months time.
If the store is in a high-traffic area then clothing moves fast and the good stuff goes. A handy tip is to ask staff about when they get new drops and try to visit that day – it’s worked well for us over the years! We also try and cull a couple things to donate on the way in. It’s a good feeling becoming part of the recycling economy and a great feeling when someone compliments you on your “new” skirt.
If you’re interested in buying any of these Salvo’s pieces below then send an email to Rebecca [firstname.lastname@example.org] to discuss sizing and for more pictures. We will sell them for the same cost plus postage. Enjoy!
