LOWCOUNTRY THRIFT STORES OFFER GREAT FINDS AND GREAT ADVENTURES

Thrifting is like a treasure hunt. As we explore thrift shops’ often eclectic offerings, it’s easy to get lost in a maze of our own curiosity. You enter the shop on the hunt for one thing — say, a used set of golf clubs — and leave with something else entirely — maybe a binder of vintage stamps. Without thrift stores, shopping would be linear, curated, sterile. Because, let’s face it, we don’t always know what we want, really. It might surprise you to find that you actually look great in that vintage 1970s print dress you found on an impulsive thrifting adventure. Maybe a rainy afternoon spent browsing makes you realize you’re fascinated by back issues of Vogue.

It’s that sense of discovery — and at great prices — that makes thrift stores a fun place to shop. You might have to put in a little effort to find something worth taking home, but it’s worth it. And who knows, you may discover some high-end brands for sale at bargain prices, given up by the Lowcountry’s well-to-do. The thrill of the hunt is half the fun. From the practical to the fantastical, chances are you’ll go home with a little of both — a Popeye mug, anyone? And sure, you could find almost anything on eBay these days, but some of the best finds are worth sifting for — like a still-sealed Prince record. And every thrift store tells a story of its town. A thrift store in Bluffton will shed light on its Lowcountry past — maybe the shop carries an old Texaco pump station sign or a megalodon tooth found in Edisto River.

Ultimately, thrift stores are gateways to finding what makes you tick. Many shops in the Lowcountry have the added benefit of supporting area nonprofit organizations. Whether it’s animal rescue, hospice or another charitable cause, you can offer your support by donating or shopping at a local thrift store today.
