CONTEST NOW CLOSED - Three Cheers for Bargains! It’s Thrift Shop Day!

P2300_PUBLICMOBILE_Banner_ThriftStore_DESIGN_V3B_Apr27_Apr30.png

 

Happy Thrift Shop Day! Once a year we celebrate the second-hand stores that fill our lives with knickknacks, retro clothes, hidden treasures, and relics of the past (Is that a VHS player? Yes, yes it is.). How amazing does it feel to find a leather jacket for five dollars, when it originally cost a hundred? How do you feel when everyone at the Christmas party is jealous of your ugly sweater? Good – that’s how. Thrift stores are where we go when we need a little shopping therapy but don’t want to spend the big bucks. So go forth, thrift well, and be prepared with these hot thrift shopping tips:

 

  1. Dig through the bins. Most people scan the top and miss out on all the buried gems below. Roll up your sleeves, dive in, and we promise you’re going to find something good at the bottom.
  2. You can alter items with a little creativity. Sure those jeans look funky as pants, but with the help of some scissors all of a sudden you have yourself a pair of trendy jean shorts. Keep those creative juices flowing when you’re rifling through the rack.
  3. Shop when the seasons change. Think about it. When winter turns to spring people are cleaning out their closets and donating all the items that have been cluttering up the basement. Hit the thrift, because it’s going to be a goldmine!
  4. Shop a lot. Like any pursuit, there are good days and bad days. Some days, you’ll search the shelves and not find anything that piques your interest. No big deal. Come back in a couple days and you’re sure to find something marvelous.
  5. Load up on jewelry. Let’s face it, most people can’t tell the difference between the real stuff and the fake stuff, so why not pay five bucks for some faux pearls? Plus, thrift stores are great for finding vintage jewelry like eclectic broaches and dazzling rings.

 

Here at Public Mobile we’re all about that thrift life, which is why our plans start as low as $10/month. And hey, want a little extra money for the next time you go thrifting? Enter our contest! Just comment below with your best thrift store find by Friday, August 24th at 12:00PM EST and we will randomly select three winners to win a $50 Public Mobile credit! As Macklemore once famously said, “I’m gonna pop some tags, only got twenty dollars in my pocket,” but if you choose Public Mobile you’ll have a little more than that.

Picked up an almost new Corningware casserole dish with lid at an independent thrift store.  The lady only wanted to charge me $1 but I said no and gave her $5 - well worth it!
