Interested in nabbing some seriously cool fashions or kicking it up a notch and setting your own trend? Want to save some serious cash? Want to help animals and the environment? If you’ve answered “Yes” to any of these questions, it’s time to embark on a thrift store exploration!

Find all the animal-free clothing you need in one place. I’m a regular at my local thrift stores, and most of what you’d find in my closet has come from them. I’m talking big-name designer labels as well as uncommon pieces that seemed as though they were waiting just for me to take them home. You can discover unique shirts, that perfect pair of pants, über-cute dresses and skirts (I just wore one to my sister’s wedding), cozy winter knit scarves or sweet scarves that add that sophisticated professional touch, stylin’ jackets, vegan belts and purses, fun jewelry and hats, and even household items. I recently stopped in a shop that had a gigantic wooden parrot hanging from the ceiling, so nothing is really off limits!

And I’m not alone in my adoration. The best compliments I receive are on my thrift store finds, and I’ve got all my friends hooked. The real bonus is that it’s so easy to find cruelty-free fashion! Just be sure to check the labels.

So check out your local thrift stores, and start saving the planet and your wardrobe today!

    I love thrift stores they are kinda like my life! you can find the cutest cloths and if you’ve got an eclectic style like mine you can find all your styles in one spot! plus my grandma spent the same amount of shopping for me at thrift stores as she did for my brother at brand name stores but I got twice as much!

    my local thrift store normally doesn’t have cute clothes like that, and if they do they don’t fit me. but i’ll keep looking!
