There was a time when people would ridicule others for wearing secondhand or cheap clothing. Now, thrift shopping has become a huge trend.

Some of the cutest clothing and accessories that people are wearing now come from your local thrift store. CNN covered a story this summer of a young lady in Atlanta who put on a fashion show with only second-hand items.

Good Will's revenue has increased immensely in the past year. People are linking up to see what vintage, sporty or dainty items are in stores to purchase at such low prices.

As college students, we learn how to budget and save money very quickly. No wonder thrifting has become so popular! Happy shopping!
