Thrift Shop Day comes on August 17 each year. It is the best day for those who are looking for the used goods to buy and sell. Thrift Shops will lend help to those who are in need of support and the profits acquired from these shops are donated to charitable organizations. Indulge yourself by donating some items you no longer use by entering a Thrift Shop on August 17.
“Thrift is poetic because it is creative; waste is unpoetic because it is waste.” – G.K. Chesterton
History of Thrift Shop Day
The charitable society established this interesting day, and that came into existence along back since to raise money for those who are in need of support. The thrift shop is a charity shop that will let people buy and sell the used items at a lower price. Thrift Shops will be opened to the public, and the volunteers maintain it. The items which are no more used are sold at a reduced cost. The profit that remains after the Thrift Shop Day will be offered for charity purposes. Initially, the Thrift Shop sold used clothes, and later people bought and sold items including used furniture, household goods, electronic items, and even toys. Thrift Shop primarily provides help for the orphans, and it still provides support for those who are looking for second-handed things. Moreover, shopping on this day even lets people notice antique items too. Another useful thing that Thrift Shop Day brings to the world is it reduces the garbage and landfills by reusing the goods.
