  • Be sure to have been drinking and eating correctly in the hours before you go on your adventure, nothing ruins thrifting more then having low blood sugar. It is also recommended to take a quick chatty fika* preferably with friends in the middle of the escapade. It can also be advisable to bring a fruit and a bottle of water with you for quick snacking if you don’t have the time or opportunity to sit down somewhere. Indeed most swedish second hand places will actually sell some fika in a cozy corner of the store.

  • Bring a clever amount of clothes, you should have enough to not freeze when making your way between stores but don’t bring too many since it makes the ordeal of getting them off when trying clothes a hassle. They are also heavy to carry around if you indeed become to warm after a while.

  • Try to have a reasonable amount of time on your hands when attempting to go thrifting, finding the treasures usually requires some time spent and nothing is more boring then rushing trough the stores.

  • If you have a number of stores to visit try to make a brief mental plan of the order to visit them in. Is one more fun than the others? Is one cheaper than the others? It might be smarter to spend a longer time in the cheaper one to find the better bargains and when not finding anything in the less sorted stores going to a slightly more expensive better sorted store afterwards might save the day.

  • Bring a reliable possy of friends if you thrive in social situations while if you feel introverted on the particular day going on your own is reccomended, going on your own is usually more effective. But that being sad, the most fun I had in thriftstores is usually when me and my friends try on outrageous outfits laugh. and in many cases find out it’s actually quite perfect for us.
