You will help the environment by shopping at thrift stores as well as adding inexpensive clothing to your fall wardrobe.. I have found a brown leather jacket for less than $20.00 at a thrift store. Also I have bought suit jackets for work from the thrift store. In addition, my shopping experience at this type of store has been that I find artistic t-shirts. My husband as found football jerseys for $14.00 as opposed to the $50.00 to $100.00 at a retail store. Handbags as well as shoes are also found at thrift stores for the fraction of the price you would pay retail. I found a great pair of suede casual flats that cost less than $20.00. They look brand new.
