But the items are new or almost new such that you can't tell -they sell clothes that did not sell, have some minor flaws etc, haven't been worn more than once (because the original tags are intact and there is no wear-tear/fading etc). They have slightly used variety for accessories. The reason I've suddenly become so fond of it is because it offers the highest quality, original, very fashionable items you won't see anywhere else. My sister found a Valentino clutch purse (with a dysfunctional zipper that requires restitch) and Jimmy Choo shoes which seems unbelievable.
Anyways, they seem more like a social taboo from what I hear. What's your stance? Have you ever been to one? How was the experience? Any amazing finds?

I think thrift stores are great. You can find some real treasures. Any stigma these establishments may have is a little dated.
I found a genuine, vintage Karl Lagerfeld LBD from the 1970s for only $25. I paired it with Betsy Johnson peep-toe pumps that I bought at the same store for $15.
