Let’s Get Ready To Thrift Shop!

Let’s Get Ready To Thrift Shop!

Here in Greenville, we have 14 local thrift shops just waiting for you to come visit them. If you’ve never been a “thrifty” shopper before, you just might get addicted to this way of saving some funds.

Thrift shopping means looking for bargains, and the neat thing about doing this is you can really find some great items at reduced prices! Yes, they are normally gently used, but believe it or not, you can actually find things sometimes that have NEVER been used. Imagine a treasure hunt, and you’ll get a better idea of what thrift shopping can resemble.

And, now that you’re thinking about thrift shopping – you’ll need a bigger home to hold all your goodies. And that’s where I come into play!

Ready to talk about selling or purchasing your home right here in the Upstate? Then you need an aggressive realtor. And, you’ve found one!
