When you shop thrift, you are buying a used item which creates a lower carbon footprint than a brand new item. In addition, you are disrupting the cycle of useable products getting thrown into landfills. By giving items another life, you are preventing landfills from overflowing with useful goods. Thrifting a gift is not only budget-friendly, but a great way to find thoughtful and unique last minute gifts.
Here are some easy ideas to thrift your gift this season!
Vintage records are great for any vinyl buff or music lover! Records deliver a unique sound found nowhere else. Grabbing a record that speaks to your gift recipient, such as a favorite song, a loved band, or something brand new, can be especially thoughtful.
Used clothing is not only budget-friendly compared to traditional stores, but it provides an outlet for re-use in a fast fashion industry. A classic sweater, a unique vintage jacket, or a pre-loved bag are all great last minute gifts.
Visibly Sold carries women’s sizes XXS-4X, and men’s sizes S-XXL.
Only at a thrift store can you find a huge selection of vintage, handmade, and modern items in one location. Finding a unique piece that sparks joy in your recipient from a thrift selection is all about thoughtfulness. Think of your recipient’s favorite colors, places, and style.
Books and Media
