Thrift and Shout on the News: Brand New Items from the Thrift Store

This morning I did my monthly thrifty news segment on Columbus, Ohio's Fox 28. I was still a little nervous but I feel like I'm getting better at it every month! This time the segment was about finding clothing at the thrift stores that still have the original tags on them. This is great for those people who feel weird about wearing clothes that other people have already worn. You can actually find brand new items at thrift stores! Some great places to find them are the "better" racks at Volunteers of America and most Goodwill stores get new merchandise from Target.

  6. I don't know if it was by coincidence, but I like that the models are wearing a similar color family. The third look is my fave.

  7. Thanks everyone! The similar color palate was just a happy accident! I don't think I could have done that well if i tried!
