Unlike secondhand clothes, secondhand fruit is useless thanks to an overabundance of juggle wounds. Enjoy secondhand products untainted by clowns with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of gently used clothing, furniture, books, furniture, and other special finds at ThriftSmart.
ThriftSmart lines the spacious aisles of its pristine new space with an eclectic range of first-rate finds, donating the entirety of its profits to local and international charities. Fashion-foragers can navigate the store's epic selection of men's and women's attire and accessories for outfit-enlivening tops ($0.99–$7.99 on average), jeans ($5.99–$7.99) dresses ($3.99–$7.99), and shoes ($0.99–$3.99). Although its not uncommon to find everyday bargains from name brands such as J. Crew, Banana Republic, or Ann Taylor, higher-end accessories from Prada, Gucci, and Chanel also can invade the aisles on occasion, elegantly bedecking deal-seekers on their way to a black-tie barbecue or ballroom bowl-a-thon. Guests can scour a mind-molding selection of books ($0.79–$4.99, on average) when lounging in its cozy used furniture, or eschew antiquated food-hammers for a mechanized assortment of modern appliances, such as toasters, blenders, and mixers. ThriftSmart's amicable staff and highly organized aisles burst beneath its radiant lighting, allowing shoppers to leave miner hats in the car when browsing its unpredictable array of odds and ends.
Steeped firmly in the community, the entirety of ThriftSmart's proceeds from its gently used apparel and housewares benefit local charities. The staffers rotate the varied inventory daily, stocking dresses, shoes, and men's and women's tops that are both fashionable and casual enough for glamorous grocery store runs. They also blanket their brightly lit aisles with a multihued miscellany of furniture and appliances and furnish shelves with books ranging from fiction to self-help.
ThriftSmart furthers its community involvement with help from a band of volunteers, who lend a hand sorting new items in the warehouse or lifting heavy furniture.
