"There are no thrift stores near me". Some of my friends have actually said this to me, but in my view, this is an unpopular opinion.
Some thrift stores like to call themselves by other names, like charity shops, knick-knack stores, bazaars or boutiques. So, what I'm suggesting is that there are probably thrifting opportunities all around you. You just might have to do a little sleuthing to find them.
The larger thrift stores, like Goodwill, Salvation Army and Habitat for Humanity ReStore are easy to spot. But your local churches and community centers often run thrift sales and flea markets. Some churches actually have their own thrift stores.
My tip: Check your local newspaper and online sites like Craigslist for thrift sales and flea markets. The finds at these out-of-the-way places are incredible!
