Myth 1 - Buying Used Items Means Your Poor
FACT: Buying gently used items means you are a smart shopper who values their money and makes smart buying decisions. Saving a bit of extra cash here and there on items like holiday decorations, funky jewelry and quality furniture leaves money for more important things like family vacations and home repairs. Why throw that money away by buying new at some big box store when you can get it for a fraction of the price at a good quality thrift store. You’ll even see celebrities like Darryl Hannah, Zac Effron, and Kylie Minogue sporting thrift store fashion even though they don’t need to save a dime.
MYTH #2: Second Hand Shopping is Icky
FACT: You can find thrift stores that are well cared for, clean and sell quality items. Sure, you still get those thrift stores here and there that smell like your grandma’s closet and the items are ratty and broken, but those places don’t usually last very long, nowadays thrift stores need to cater to the masses to make it a pleasant shopping experience. Here at Curiosity Shop we not only clean the store each day, we also ensure that only clean and quality items make it onto the floor. We will wash and dry, soak and clean many of the items before they hit the retail area so that the “thrift store smell” doesn’t happen and most of our customers compliment us on how clean our treasures are and how nice the store looks. Yes, some of our items gather a bit of dust, being next to the TRE line does cause a bit of dust to float thru the door but we try very hard to keep it to a minimum. We'll even dust it for you before you place it in your car so your treasure is ready to go right into your home with the least amount of effort on your part.
