  • identify if a garment is worth the price
  • identify what makes a quality garment — what to look out for
  • identify if a garment can be altered or not

  • think about styling garments together while you're browsing
  • work through impulse purchases in the moment

How it works

  • A few days before the workshop, I'll send out an email with all my tips for how to prepare for a visit to the thrift store—including what to wear.
  • In the same email, I'll explain how the workshop will take place and you can send me any questions you have.
  • On the day of the workshop, we meet at Talize Kingston 10 minutes beforehand.
  • We begin with how to navigate a thrift store, moving through the sections together. There will be times I speak to you as a group, and times when I will help you individually with your items.
  • At the end of the workshop, you purchase any items that we've determined are worth it.
  • By the end of the day, I send you an organized PDF of everything we discussed.
