One of the first thrift tips I share with new thrifters is to check all sections and departments at the thrift store, even if it’s not your size because you never know what you’ll find. Items could be misplaced, mismarked, or vintage sizing (which is much different than modern sizing) so doing a quick walk through of other departments will broaden your options. No need to spend a lot of time browsing other sections, a quick glance or walkthrough will do!
