Clothing gifts having style, size or color differences (of dismay) find their way to consignment stores or donated to well known chartable organizations. Review of tag or manufacturer applied sizing stamp determines gentle or if any, use. Based on price, three (rear) pocket bicycle jerseys have rewarded me with 63 purchases since February. After a year has passed, they will be donated to a youth group who promotes two wheel fitness. Several have even joined my wardrobe. The price is always right.

Residing in a large metro area affords me multiple options which to land these thrift store scores.

I'd rather buy old clothing that was worn by a deceased person, than buy new clothing made in a sweatshop by ten year old children. Because I don't want to support the child labor industry and buying new clothing feeds that problem.

Several have even joined my wardrobe?

They are so thoroughly cleaned that there should be no problems.

I love to shop for clothing in thrift stores. The thought that someone else wore the items before I purchased them doesn't bother me in the least. There are several such stores in my town, including Goodwill and various churches' resale shops. There's also one upscale resale shop that carries only high-end clothing. In every one of these stores, the clothes have been cleaned before being put out for sale.

I've gotten some fantastic deals at thrift stores. The first time I ever had a real wool coat I purchased it at a church resale shop. In a department store it would have been way out of my price range. It was like new; lining and all in perfect condition. I wore the coat for several years before donating it to another resale shop, still in very good condition.

I've also purchased used jeans, skirts, shirts, blouses and business suits at resale shops. I even found a pair of like-new Nike athletic shoes several months ago in a church resale shop. They fit me perfectly and only cost me four bucks!
