Smarter Thrift Store Shopping

Some of us shop at thrift stores to save money; others shop at thrift stores as a hobby because it’s fun to search for hidden treasures. No matter why you shop at thrift stores, it’s good to be knowledgeable about what to buy and what to avoid, since nothing you buy at a thrift store comes with a guarantee from the manufacturer or the store itself. “Let the buyer beware” is a motto that should always be at the forefront of your mind when you’re at a thrift store.

That said, the following items are things you should seriously consider buying at thrift stores because they tend to be affordable and have lasting value:

  • Dishware and flatware – Plates, mugs, glassware, and flatware are all great to shop for at thrift stores. You can collect an eclectic set of items that are pretty and could become interesting conversation pieces.
  • Furniture – As a general rule, furniture lasts a long time, so it can be a good idea to purchase it used from a thrift store. If shoppers look hard enough, chances are they can find some furniture pieces that are still in great condition and make beautiful additions to their homes.
  • Books – Books are another item that can be found in excellent condition at thrift stores. Thanks to the discounted pricing, hardcover and limited-edition books are often much more affordable at thrift stores than buying them new at a bookstore or online.
  • Artwork – Many shoppers score big by buying artwork at thrift stores. While the artwork might not be worth a lot of money, it is worth a lot if the person buying it likes it and can enjoy displaying it for many years to come.
