To find nice clothes at the thrift store, you'll need to spend some time pushing hangers around while searching for quality stuff. Along the way, you'll come across pilled sweaters, coffee-stained pants, and stretched-out T-shirts and blouses that reek of some thoughtless donor's perfume. However, it pays to sort the wheat from the chaff.
That's because you'll also find new, gently used, and even high-end clothing — especially when it comes to women's suits, dresses, pants, and shirts. Just think about all those professionals who have to look sharp at their jobs every day. Often, those people dry-cleaned or washed all those expensive outfits delicately, so the clothing looks almost brand new.
