Thrift shopping is the new wave in Atlanta. Looking like a million bucks, but probably spending less than $20 is something that seems to stick this year for obvious reasons. ‘Thrifting Atlanta’ is an online social network and Facebook group aimed at teaching and embracing the love of thrift and bargain shopping.
‘Thrifting Atlanta’ will be hosting their ‘Winter Market and Fashion Swap’ event on Sunday, February 9th in the Buckhead area. Guests will have opportunities to meet with small business owners, fashion bloggers, and influencers and participate in raffles and clothing swaps.
The network was started by Keren Charles Dulcosel, an award-winning fashion blogger, personal shopper, and thrift expert. She started ‘Thrifting Atlanta’ as a way to help others see the beauty in thrifting and to educate them on how to thrift and create a space for like-minded thrifters to come together and do what they love best.
Thrifting is a way to express your creative side without hurting your pockets. Putting pieces together from random items you find and making a bomb outfit out of it without breaking the bank will make you feel like you’ve finally learned the secret of shopping. Millennials and young adults find thrift shopping more pleasant than boutique or mall shopping because they’re in control of how they want the outfit to look, the clothes they get are reused and sustainable and you can never go wrong with vintage or retro style clothing.
