👋 Megan here! I've been a dedicated thrift store shopper — and donor — for many years.

Why it matters: Bringing new life into used clothes, accessories and housewares is a fun exercise in style and good for the environment, as my Axios Chicago colleague pointed out recently.

  • Plus, it's often more affordable, and many thrift stores donate proceeds to great causes.

San Antonians have already started their spring cleaning.

  • On a recent weekend visit to a vintage yard sale in Highland Park, I easily came across half a dozen other garage sales as neighbors tried to make extra space in their homes.

🔊 Sound off: Where do you find your own treasures when thrifting about town?

  • Is it the same place you donate to when clearing out the closet?

📧 Hit reply and let us know. We'll gather the responses and share the knowledge.
