Do You Shop Off-Season????

For me shopping off-season is one of the best ways to shop. It allows me to get FABULOUS fashions for next year at rock bottom prices.  In order for stores to make room for Spring and Summer merchandise the winter fashions MUST GO. With Spring fast approaching  now is the time to take advantage of the great clearance sales going on in your local stores. You can also find some great winter blow outs online. Now I am sure you are thinking wait I can’t believe THE THRIFTY FASHIONISTA has not mentioned thrifting . Well if  you have been reading my blog you know I don’t ever post anything that doesn’t talk about THRIFTING. So here we go! I was recently asked the questions “do thrift stores have winter clearance sales too?”. The answer to this question is YES. Thrift stores like other retail stores are trying to transition to their spring and summer merchandise, so winter items MUST GO.  Just the other day I took advantage of Unique Thrift Stores $10.00 winter bag sale. How the sale worked is that when you came into Unique Thrift Store they gave you one of their large bags. You could fill the bag up with any winter coats, sweaters, scarves, hats and boots. You had to fit as much as you could in the bag without it tearing and the cashier had to be able to close it.  Then you took it to the register and the whole bag was $10.00. Yes I said it $10.00 for everything in the bag. HOW CAN YOU BEAT THAT? I got some fabulous things and am well on my way to having  next years HOTT winter wardrobe. Now if your thinking,  how do you know that stuff will even be in style next year? I don’t…….. but I don’t CARE, I bought what I LIKE. I create my own STYLE. Besides from season to season fashion may have a few major new trends but a lot of staple items stay the same. You all are probably shaking your head at the computer thinking “it is warm so I don’t want to shop for winter clothes. However you have to trust THE THRIFTY FASHIONISTA these are some sales you don’t want to miss. Check out my video below to see what fabulous things I found at the winter bag sale. I hope it inspires you to do a little WINTER shopping of your own. Until next time my Thriftanistas.
