What to thrift online or in-store

Red, white and blue clothing

One of the easiest ways to show off your patriotism this Fourth of July is to rock the colors of red, white and blue. Although this task may seem easy, it can be quite daunting to fashion lovers. The mix of colors in one outfit while staying chic can cause some stress. Some ideas to make sure the day is enjoyed with friends and family and doesn't end up being a fashion dilemma include incorporating white pants, patterned or colored shirt-dresses, graphic tees or any USA-colored or themed apparel.

Watching fireworks on the Fourth of July is a must-do! Whether you have a go-to spot or watch from home, getting a comfy blanket to sprawl out on makes the experience so much better. Save yourself from the itchy grass and stop cranking your neck in the car. This year you’re not going to miss the fireworks spectacular, shop at a local thrift store for a blanket the whole family can enjoy.

Picnic baskets

What’s better than watching fireworks while having a picnic? Find the perfect picnic basket to fit all the delicious BBQ leftovers and snacks to eat during the fireworks show! Enjoy the fireworks and great food.


July is one of the hottest summer months, so it’s important to stay cool and hydrated! Thrift a cooler and be sure to stock it with hydrating drinks to stay safe this Independence Day. Coolers are great to shop secondhand as they can range in price when bought new.
