Customers are often budget conscious when they shop for clothes. With higher inflation in the past few years, shopping at thrift stores is one way to save money on fashion. It is now trendy to shop at used apparel stores. The resale fashion industry continues to grow in sales as customers increasingly buy their clothes at thrift stores. 

A report from CouponFollow found people who purchase thrifted items save more than $1,700 per year (or about $150 a month) by buying their clothes secondhand.
