Thrifting refers to the act of shopping at a thrift store, flea market, garage sale, or a shop of a charitable organization, usually with the intent of finding interesting items at a cheap price.

A larger philosophy permeates the act of thrifting which celebrates the recycling of formerly-owned items, finding new use and new love for vintage material goods which had been thrown out, and the thrill of imagining what the former life of the item was like.

NABBW Associate, and Thrifting Expert Barb Tobias, who calls herself the “Thrift Talk Diva,” writes a column for NABBW on thrifting, and says that thrifting is not only a journey of personal transformation, but it also teaches a newly frugal nation how to purchase, purge and profit from thrift. She’s written a book on the topic, titled “Tossed and Found.”
