When people go thrifting, it doesn’t just mean that they are going to buy old, dirty, used-clothing. It means that they want to go explore the world of unique,vintage, items for a great low-price. Many go for fun while others go to find something in particular. Anyone who shops can guarantee to find something they like, such as books, furniture, decorations, and etc. Not only is thrift-shopping a great way to save money, but it’s also amazing for the environment! Each time you thrift, you’re reducing the massive and harmful waste of energy and resources used to produce new clothes. Plus, you can find unique items that nobody else has! Thrift shopping has become increasingly popular, thanks to big social-media platforms like TikTok, Instagram, and Pinterest. Students at Franklin have also caught on to the world of thrifting. Take a look at some of their tips and tricks!:

“Look in every single section, even if it’s not your size. A lot of times, clothes are mis organized and you have a chance of finding something great.” – Angela Camacho. freshman

“Always have a good idea of what you are looking for. Gather pictures similar to what you want to find, and don’t be afraid to shop in different sections. Some of my favorite clothes have actually come from the men’s section.” – Natalie Balboa, freshman

“If you’re looking for something specific, go as often as possible. The stock changes every day. Another one is to just go with the flow. You never know what you might find!” – Sydney Rumpf, freshman
