  3. To add unique items to your closet– Thrift inventory comes from so many different sources. So, a wide variety of items tend to grace the shelves and racks of most thrift stores. 

  4. So you won’t look like everyone else in the office, club, or church- Because there typically aren’t shelves and racks of the same item, you can purchase one of a kind items to add to your closet. Take the opportunity to stock up on those vintage rare fashion items that you know the next woman won ‘t like have in her closet.
