There’s nothing like a looming holiday to turn bargain shopping into a real treasure hunt. In anticipation of Independence Day, we’ve put together some patriotic apparel from a mix of thrifted favorites, bargain store finds, and handmade accessories.
Typically, the 4th of July will find us kicking back with friends, enjoying food off the grill and maybe the great outdoors, so we opted for some casual looks with just enough pop and sparkle to be part of the celebration.
By the way, most thrift stores re-merchandise around big holidays just like regular retail stores. Goodwill is especially good at this. However, when something is featured it tends to sell fast, so shop early and often to get the best picks!
