How To Thrift Designer Brands

Thrifting has no doubt become a popular hobby for fashionistas out there. Nobody is immune to the excitement of finding a treasure at a low price. Whether you're shopping the nearest thrift store or the Goodwill that's 30 minutes away, it's possible to find high-end designer brands. Here's how:

Know the Good Locations

Although good items are bound to be dropped off at every locations there are definitely some thrift stores that receive more designer items than others. Wealthier neighborhoods typically spend more on the clothing they buy and don't mind donating it when they're tired of it. You can also check out the many online thrift stores (BrokeBishBargains.com is our favorite but we may be a little bias).

Know the Best Time to Shop

If you want to beat the competition and get the better items before they're gone - ask the thrift store employees when they typically restock. 

Bigger thrift stores tend to restock daily if you're there early then things will be more organized, making it easier to shop. However, if the thrift store continues to put new items out throughout the day then you may want to go mid-day when the early bird shoppers are gone and new items have been put out.

The next best time to shop at thrift stores is on their deal days. Thrift stores have special deals and discounts on various days of the week. The Salvation Army and Goodwill offer 50% off certain color tags on certain days of the week

Be Prepared - Know the Brands

If you want to find designer brands in a thrift store, the most obvious thing you need to do is know the designer brands.  While this may seem obvious and easy, you won't realize until you're at the thrift store just how many different brands there are. It's nearly impossible to know every single clothing brand that there is. However, by doing a little brand research and seeing what sells for the most money you can easily learn what brands are considered high-end designers and what brands are not

Some of my favorite brands to find are: Chanel, Burberry, Tory Burch, Gucci, etc.)

Learn the material (cashmere, wool, silk & leather)

If you know the different types of clothing material well enough, it's actually possible to get an idea on the worth of a product just based on the material. Although there are other determining factors, such as brands, there are definitely different materials that sell better than other. 

For example: silk, cashmere, wool & leather typically cost more.

  • Cool website!

    My name’s Eric, and I just found your site – theclosetny.com – while surfing the net. You showed up at the top of the search results, so I checked you out. Looks like what you’re doing is pretty cool.

    But if you don’t mind me asking – after someone like me stumbles across theclosetny.com, what usually happens?

    Is your site generating leads for your business?

    I’m guessing some, but I also bet you’d like more… studies show that 7 out 10 who land on a site wind up leaving without a trace.

    Not good.

    Here’s a thought – what if there was an easy way for every visitor to “raise their hand” to get a phone call from you INSTANTLY… the second they hit your site and said, “call me now.”

    You can –

    Talk With Web Visitor is a software widget that’s works on your site, ready to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number. It lets you know IMMEDIATELY – so that you can talk to that lead while they’re literally looking over your site.

    CLICK HERE https://talkwithwebvisitors.com to try out a Live Demo with Talk With Web Visitor now to see exactly how it works.

    Time is money when it comes to connecting with leads – the difference between contacting someone within 5 minutes versus 30 minutes later can be huge – like 100 times better!

    That’s why we built out our new SMS Text With Lead feature… because once you’ve captured the visitor’s phone number, you can automatically start a text message (SMS) conversation.

    Think about the possibilities – even if you don’t close a deal then and there, you can follow up with text messages for new offers, content links, even just “how you doing?” notes to build a relationship.

    Wouldn’t that be cool?

  • My name’s Eric and I just came across your website – theclosetny.com – in the search results.

    Here’s what that means to me…

    Your SEO’s working.

    You’re getting eyeballs – mine at least.

    Your content’s pretty good, wouldn’t change a thing.

    BUT…

    Eyeballs don’t pay the bills.

    CUSTOMERS do.

    And studies show that 7 out of 10 visitors to a site like theclosetny.com will drop by, take a gander, and then head for the hills without doing anything else.

    It’s like they never were even there.

    You can fix this.

    You can make it super-simple for them to raise their hand, say, “okay, let’s talk” without requiring them to even pull their cell phone from their pocket… thanks to Talk With Web Visitor.

    Talk With Web Visitor is a software widget that sits on your site, ready and waiting to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number. It lets you know immediately – so you can talk to that lead immediately… without delay… BEFORE they head for those hills.

    Now it’s also true that when reaching out to hot leads, you MUST act fast – the difference between contacting someone within 5 minutes versus 30 minutes later is huge – like 100 times better!

    That’s what makes our new SMS Text With Lead feature so powerful… you’ve got their phone number, so now you can start a text message (SMS) conversation with them… so even if they don’t take you up on your offer right away, you continue to text them new offers, new content, and new reasons to do business with you.

    This could change everything for you and your business.

  • Hey, my name’s Eric and for just a second, imagine this…

    - Someone does a search and winds up at theclosetny.com.

    - They hang out for a minute to check it out. “I’m interested… but… maybe…”

    - And then they hit the back button and check out the other search results instead.

    - Bottom line – you got an eyeball, but nothing else to show for it.

    - There they go.

    This isn’t really your fault – it happens a LOT – studies show 7 out of 10 visitors to any site disappear without leaving a trace.

    But you CAN fix that.

    Talk With Web Visitor is a software widget that’s works on your site, ready to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number. It lets you know right then and there – enabling you to call that lead while they’re literally looking over your site.
