Fall is a fun time of the year to go thrift shopping in Colorado Springs. Here’s why:
Halloween costumes are on the racks! All year long, thrift stores set aside the most unusual and interesting vintage clothing that is donated and it all comes out for Halloween costume shoppers. If you need a muumuu, a polyester leisure suit, a fur coat or a prom dress from the 1960s, now is the time to go shopping. Checking out the Halloween costume racks at area ARC and Goodwill stores — whether you need a costume or not — can provide hours of shopping entertainment.
Snow gear is out at bargain prices. It’s time for winter sports, so if the kids have outgrown the boots or jackets, now is the time to trade up. Coats and jackets are beginning to make their appearance in the thrift stores.
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas. Are you among the legions of fans of vintage Christmas? Wax nostalgic by perusing the newly-set-out Christmas stock, and you might even find some Christmas gold. Mercury glass ornaments, anyone?
Even if you don’t crave vintage, everyone gets tired of their holiday decorations after too many years, so why not change them out? Donate your old decor to a charity shop and shop them for something new to add to your holiday cheer. Now’s the time!
