I actually only started thrifting last year. I became interested in it when I saw on lookbook that people "thrift" and I wondered what that was. I thought it was a store. Well, technically it is a store but I thought it was like a forever 21 where you can enter and buy clothes. When I told my friend I wanted to try and go thrifting, coincidentally, she was also interested. Her mom thrifts and finds good deals so the first place I ever went to was Goodwill.
Buffalo Exchange was the second store she brought me to for thrifting. They have two locations but the one I usually go to is located on Driggs Avenue in Williamsburg. I went today with four of my friends cause they wanted to try thrifting too but I guess thrifting isn't really for them. Only one of them really found stuff. I grabbed a few things but because I'm poor I tried to limit myself. I bought a skirt, high waisted shorts and this really really nice bag that I am feigning over. I've been trying to look for something like this and I HAD to get it. My total ended up being $44.50. Let me just say that Buffalo Exchange isn't really a good place to find cheap finds. It's a bit pricey actually. But, occasionally you'll see some (barely) cheaper items that are worth it. So, here's how my bag looks!
