Tip's For Shopping At Thrift Shops

1. First of all you really need to try to get them to negotiate on prices. And some really good times to try to get them to negotiate on prices is on Saturday afternoons or when you know that the item or items have been in the Thrift shop for a while.

2. Go Thrift Shop Shopping when you know you have the time to shop. You'll never have as good a shopping experience if you have to rush. So plan for several hours of shopping time when you go Thrift Shop Shopping.

3. Be sure to check out any clothing items you purchase well to be sure they really are in as good a shape as you think they are.

4. Take batteries with you when you go to Thrift Shops so you can see if an item really does work. Keep a small plastic box in your vehicle with 4-6 of each batter type so you can check items out to see if they do work. Keep 3-4 kinds and sizes of screw drivers in the same box to be able to open battery storage packs or etc.

5. Make you up a kit to take to Thrift Shops or Yard Sales with you. That kit should contain a good magnifying glass , a magnet to check to see if jewelry is real or plated junk , and a cloth measuring tape to check the size of pants especially if the label is missing or cut out.

6. Keep a small book and pen in your kit in number 5 to make notes about the Thrift Shops such as sales days , hours of operation , or other notes you may want to make.

7. If your going to a lot of different towns and cities to Thrift Shops and Yard Sales your going to want a Tom Tom or other GPS device so you can easily locate places or locations you might otherwise have trouble finding.

      Newberry does have a lot of history that I find very interesting. I did a series of Ghost and Paranormal Videos about the college in Newberry.

      Long before you were a shopper, as a UNC undergrad playing weekend gigs to pay for school, I once did Newberry, but we're talking about the l940's, long before all these shops made the scene. Can't remember much about the town, it's part of a whirl of weekenders covering a number of years. What I do remember was - while I was there - loving the South of the day. And night.
