Wednesday August 17, 2016 is Thrift Shop Day.

“A snow globe of Detroit, Michigan, a set of four tennis rackets with slightly frayed strings, clothing galore and enough housewares to make a few houses full and have some spares just in case. This is just some of the kinds of things you will be seeing on this, the celebration of Thrift Shop Day.

Thrift shops have existed in the world for a long period of time. People looking to assist others in their lives by offering cheaper prices on used wares. Clothing was originally the start of thrift shops, however it added furniture, housewares and even toys over time. Any method of making some money on the item, while still helping out those with less money so they can have those items in their lives. These stores have been a haven for those in need, and even more so for individuals just starting to get on their feet. Furniture that isn’t roadside collection, clothing on the cheap, even some utensils like forks, maybe even a microwave or television can be had at a thrift store for cheap prices. The biggest draw for many is the reusing of items instead of them filling landfills and garbage piles. The reuse of many items, specifically electronic and household objects, has seen a boom in recent years as people are becoming more aware of the effect the items have in landfills. These small purchases help as they all start adding up as so many people have done them, creating a worldwide movement to reduce how much garbage is being made.

How to celebrate Thrift Shop Day:
Go on in, browse the selections, find some outfits to wear and enjoy the treasure hunt! Going into a thrift store is never the same experience, and the heap of items changes constantly. Thrift stores get new merchandise in regularly, and stock rotates out at a fast pace. Reuse the items people have donated, and assist monetarily in a fund that most likely helps others in need.” ^sPm – ‪#‎sharpharmade‬ Fr ‘Days of the Year’ http://ow.ly/i/mbg49
