  1. Thrifting is a new buzz word that has been going on for a few years now. People have been moving away from the mall and chain stores. The recession of 2008 brought on a new trend, the thrift store. I’ve been thrifting for a little over 2 years now and have never been disappointed with finding amazing items.
