Buying Clothing At A Thrift Store ~ Balancing Your Budget Shop Used Rather Than New

I have decided to add selling good used clothing to my eBay store. So off to the thrift store I went.
We were on a small road trip to spend time with some of the family and on the way there are 6 different thrift stores.
This is some of the tips I will share with you.
1. If they have a frequent customer card get one and remember to get it punched when shopping. This month I have received $20.00 in free merchandise at two different stores.
2. Most of the store will have a certain color tag on sale, look for clothes with that tag to save you money.
3. Be sure to check out the clothing carefully before buying. Stains , holes and it does not go into my shopping card.
4. If you are going to resell on the Internet research it is important to learn what brands are worth buying and what you should pay to make a profit. I only buy what is on sale unless it is a treasure.
I am just starting this new niche to sell on eBay and have joined a face book group to learn from those who have been doing clothing for some time. And as a bonus I am finding out about other treasures that can be found that can be worth some nice money.

Here are a few of the items I have found this last weekend.
Jesse James work shirt great condition. Ralph Lauren and last is Tommy Bahama  ladies Hawaiian style blouse.

Great treasures can be found for a few dollars. Give your budget a break and check out your local thrift store to see what is waiting for you.
Thanks for stopping by. Grace
