How often do clothing retailers update their inventory? Once a month, once a season? It depends on the establishment, of course, but the way we see it, it’s not often enough. Why limit yourself when our thrift store in San Diego offers daily turnover and other advantages that buying brand-new can’t touch? New merchandise every day is essential for serious, savvy fashion hunters. Here are a few reasons why:
Into the Great Unknown
Humans are natural explorers. Nothing beats the thrill of adventure and the triumph of discovering the unknown. This is true for astronauts and thrifters alike. Whether you scoured your favorite thrift store last weekend or two days ago, you’re guaranteed to find something new when you return today, maybe even that one essential piece you’ve been seeking for years.
Experimental Crisis Averted
You probably have a good idea of what colors, fabrics, and styles work for your body, but branching out and trying new things isn’t always ideal with retail purchases. You might feel confident with the tags still on, but your mind can change once you give that new outfit a spin in public. It goes without saying that spending ten bucks on a failed fashion experiment is much better than wasting a hundred. Daily turnover means more chances to find that surprising new style that makes you look like a million.
Experienced thrifters are well-acquainted with the excitement of stumbling across vintage treasure: “Wait, is this…OMG IT IS! And it’s MY SIZE!” And unlike retail stores that offer vintage replicas, there’s very little chance of spotting someone in public wearing the same piece (or even worse, wearing it better). Treasure doesn’t last long on the racks, but new inventory every day increases your chances of striking gold.
Similar to the thrill of a Vintage Victory is the delight in finding designer brands among the racks that are normally far beyond your budget (and beyond common sense, too—seriously, how can a pair of pre-ripped skinny jeans cost $500?). Sometimes you can even find brand-new brand names, with the tags still attached! Like vintage finds, these gems disappear from thrift store racks almost as soon as they appear, but daily inventory changes mean more is on the way.
No matter how much inventory flows in and out of thrift stores each day, at Thrift Trader there is one guarantee you can count on: quality. Each dress, shirt, pair of shoes – everything – has been personally approved for resale. Clothes from cheap, trendy mall stores barely survive through a few washes, let alone an entire season. Thrifting means shopping with confidence that your clothes will last.
