Shop At Thrift Stores? You Bet! – opinion



I recently spent a weekend in Ventura, California, and the main reason I go there is to visit their thrift stores on Main Street. Thrift store shopping has become one of my newest hobbies! From the SPARC Second Chance Store, to the Goodwill, there are so many great thrift stores to visit, a person could get lost in all the bargins found!

If you’re not someone that’s picky about wearing or using items that belonged to someone else, and you like to save money, then walking through rows and rows in any given thrift store could become your new passion as well.
