My clothing wardrobe consists of at least 4 different dress sizes. Ummmm I wonder why, Oh My. Another great thing about the USA is clothes are relatively inexpensive compared to other countries. But still, you can get great buys on clothing with the tags still on them from Thrift Shops. Most clothes in these shops are returns. Returns are not supposed to be resold in the original retail stores. For example Macy's and Nordstroms have great return policies and beautiful clothes. If you return a sweater,they throw it into a big box and sell the returns to auction houses. The original manufacturers do not mind as long as the tag is cut off, more often, this never happens. Sometimes the tax break is better than reselling to auction houses so they donate to thrift shops. Mostly returns from the home shopping channels are sold on ebay, by folks who buy at auctions. What I do suggest is to stay away from Goodwill Industries and the Salvation Army. They are way too expensive. Look in the phone book under Thrift Stores. Or go into Goodwill and "Salys", tod ask the other customers if there are any good thrift shops around the neighborhood. May I also suggest, do not wear your "Prada" cause in some little church shops the ladies make up the prices and if your nice and decent, sometimes a dollar item can cost a quarter. The same goes for yard sales, flea markets. Also, always have small change.
