    Are you willing to shop resale or secondhand?

    Why or why not?

    Absolutely! This is a wonderful way to get bargains. I love thrift stores, Craigs List and yard sales both for buying and selling!

    Oh, definitely!  You can get some fabulous bargains on items that you many never have been able to afford had they not been secondhand.  I once picked up a gorgeous silvery blue cocktail dress at a gigantic thrift place in Brooklyn for twelve measly bucks.  Just be sure to clean whatever you buy very well.

    Yes!  Although, I never used to.  I've been shopping at Value Village for about the last couple of years and was so impressed with the clothes I found that I keep going back.  My daughter enjoys going there too, because she can get a bag of little stuffed animals for like $2!  I've found gently used clothing, that fits great, and also they are already softened since they have been used.  I will definitely keep shopping there!

    Absolutely. I think you can find all kinds of treasures in someone else's things that they no longer need.

    Definitely!  For clothes, secondhand stores are a great place to find unusual or high-quality clothing for good prices.  I am indifferent to trends; I wear what I like, and I need to look professional most of the time; second hand stores are a great way to find quality dress clothes for prices far more affordable than most retail clothing stores.

    Definitely--thrift stores, used clothing stores, flea markets, yard sales--love them! I rarely shop at regular stores. If I do, I go straight to the sale racks. I don't buy anything for full price (except maybe at Wal-Mart!). Why pay full price when you can get good, quality items at a fraction of the cost?
