Buy: In-house label clothing
“Most high-end department stores like Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, and Bloomingdales have in-house labels that are at a slightly lower price point than more recognizable brands but are still high-quality garments,” says Betsy Appleton, thrift shopping expert, and blogger at Goldwill Digger. So, scoop up the house labels from Nordstrom such as Halogen, BP, and Treasure and Bond or Aqua from Bloomingdale’s. It might not happen as often but if you spot a Burberry trench coat or cute floral Ralph Lauren dress in your size, grab it. But don’t forget to check for missing buttons, snaps or broken zippers. Plus: These are the things you should avoid buying at garage sales.
