Do you even thrift, bro? Well, you probably should on Monday 17 in honor of National Thrift Store Day. What’s better than celebrating the positive impacts of second-hand shopping by buying some cool throwbacks? Answer: When they’re discounted up to 50 percent off!
The national holiday was founded by ReuseNYC, an association of New York City nonprofits that accept and redistribute donated goods. And since many of its members (and a few others) are participating this year by hosting store-wide sales, now’s the perfect time to restock you wardrobe with retro threads that you will actually feel good about purchasing.
