9. Bring Your Mom
As strange as this may sound, you really need to bring your mom to the thrift shop. And it’s not just because moms love bargains. (It’s also not for her senior discount.) Your mom is most likely going to spot brands and objects that you would have never known about before. My own mom has taught me a lot about various ceramic brands, because she really loves fine china and glassware. I know way more than the average 30 year old about this information, just because I listened to my mom.
Your own mother might be really into fashion, vinyl records, or something else that they sell in the thrift store. Learning knowledge from an older generation is how you find some amazing hidden treasures. Even if she’s not super materialistic in any way, your mom will have a lot of fun shopping with you, guaranteed.
