There is nothing better than an amazing thrift or consignment store haul. There are a variety of reasons I love to thrift, hit garage sales on the weekends, drop into consignment stores and, yes, pick up items on the side of the road weekly during bulk day.
Some of the most popular celebrities in the world thrift, buy from consignment and look for a great deal from Hoda Kotb to Sara Jessica Parker.
Palm Beach County has a plethora of thrift stores from Jupiter to Boca Raton and there are deals and steals to be found no matter what you might be needing.
I wear items I have purchased from thrift stores, my home has furniture from my shopping finds and I have found beautiful gifts at bargain prices to share with friends and family. Think Lilly Pulitzer, Tiffany & Co. and beyond!
If high end clothes are your jam then look no further in our 2,383-square-mile county because clearly with the number of events, balls and charity dinners happening at any given time you can find designer gowns, handbags, shoes, dresses and more by shopping thrift and consignment…some items will even have the tags still attached.
If you have a weekend or business event to attend or a home decor project to tackle but your budget is limited buzz by a local thrift store to stretch your dollar to find secondhand items and designer deals to freshen up your wardrobe and your hive.
If classic T-shirts are your passion, you need a winter coat, for the one trip up north this year, or you simply have to freshen up that one room in your house and have champagne taste but a beer budget then you are in luck with all the thrifting store choices we have right here the Delray/Boca area!
#SoooBoca Thrifting Tips:
Make a list of what you are hunting for before you go.
Check the back racks…always.

Clean out your car…you never know when something big may be on your take home list.
