From wanting to be more environmentally conscious to keeping up with the fashion trends (we see you TikTok aesthetics) vintage and thrift shopping has become more popular than ever! Downtown San Marcos has several great options to choose from to discover some fabulous new-to-you items.


Shopping at vintage and thrift stores is a very green way to spice up your wardrobe and home. Not only does the purchase limit the resources need in order to produce new items, it also reduces waste. Instead of something wasting away in a landfill, it’s bringing joy in a new closet, and reduces your carbon footprint. Shopping resale is also a really great way to find name brand or high-quality treasures for less than retail price, so your wallet will thank you also.


While shopping for pre-owned clothing and home goods is great for the environment, it’s also very “in” right now for other reasons. Buying used allows you to really get creative with your new items. From upcycling and tailoring, to mixing things you might not have been inspired to in a conventional store setting, you can really harness your own personal style. You truly never know what unique things you’ll find thrift shopping!
