When one thinks of cheap clothing, words like ‘trendy’ and ‘fashionable’ do not come readily to mind. Rather one thinks of ‘cheap and nasty’. But this does not necessarily have to be the case. Cheap clothing does not have to be badly made either. You already know the discount shops where they sell clothing where the buttons are not tied off, the stitching is weak and the material is flimsy.
Well, I am not suggesting those shops, rather I would like to draw your attention to places where you can buy high quality clothing at markdown prices.
Up market second hand shops have been a thriving industry in the Unites States for a quite a few years already, but along with the vogue for designer clothes, some of these second hand shops have raised their quality standards too. Some only sell clothing and accessories of the uppermost quality.
These shops actually pay for their merchandise, unlike charity shops where the goods are given. In these harder times, most people would rather get a few dollars for their excess clothing than nothing, so the better quality goods tend to come to these shops. The profit margins appear to be quite low, so that you can sometimes pick up genuine bargains for around the $10-$20 mark. This means that you are getting ‘cheap clothing which did not start out life as cheap clothing.
Another kind of shop is the so-called Vintage shops. They sell a range of retro fashions – fashionable goods from decades or even generations ago. Some of these styles look absolutely wonderful. Heaven knows where they find these clothes, all you can assume is that some people never throw anything away so that when granny goes to live with one of her children in her old age, she has to have her first clear out for fifty years. Anyway, the variety of gear you can find in these shops is quite surprising and clothes were made to last in the older days.
Thrift stores or charity shops are a more well-known hunting ground for good quality clothing but there are still plenty of bargains to be had there. The tactic to employ with thrift shops is to go often. Try to find out when they restock their shelves. That is when does the laundry firm deliver? You want to be first there when that happens Thrift shops are also a good place to buy books and other every day household items.
Church bazaars and school jumble sales are good places to search for high quality clothing being sold off cheaply as well. The clothing being sold at these dos will have been given by good-hearted folk who have the well-being of the organization selling the clothing at heart. They will not have donated a bag full of rubbish to their local vicar or headmistress, will they? The same goes for jumble sales held in support of a local Guide or Scout troop. Look in your local paper for news of up-coming events for particulars of where and when.
