Isn’t that just the reaction you want
from a girlfriend or a sister or a mom or daughter when she opens your holiday gift?
When you shop consignment, resale, or thrift,
it’s easy to afford the “shouldn’t haves”,
whether her idea of a spectacular gift is a real designer bag (for the classy fashionista who can’t abide fakes), a unique necklace (for the iconoclast who stands out in any crowd), or even a whole big box full of extra mittens (for the tomboy who’s always losing them in the snowball fights she organizes!)
Most resale shops also offer wonderful locally-made accessories, hand-selected new items ranging from soy candles to the latest kid fad, and fair-trade goods you won’t find in the mall.
Check out what’s in your local resale shop. There’s even scads of “new-with-tags” items for way lower than even the door-buster sales at the CheapoMart… and you don’t have to stand in line in the dark on Black Friday when you shop your hometown resaler!
