Vintage clothing stores in big cities make a lot of money by selling items that you might be able to find at your local thrift store. Trendy vintage boutiques in shopping districts will charge you a lot of dough for what could cost you just a few dollars elsewhere. In fact, the owners of these higher priced shops often troll the thrift stores themselves for those vintage finds, then mark them up for unwitting shoppers. If you're into vintage threads, then stop by the thrift store before you head to the hipster shop down the street.
