1. SIZE DOESN'T ALWAYS MATTER
At labelswap, all of our clothing is sorted by size to make it easier for our customers to find their perfect fit! That being said, we want you to think of size as a starting point, not an ending point. Since most of our items have been pre-loved, they might fit a little differently than a brand new item due to being washed or dried. It's important to consider the variety we carry and acknowledge that many brands have unique sizing charts. The best way to navigate this? Start your hunt at your typical size, but look at the clothing one size smaller and one size larger. If it appears it'll fit, try it on!
2. THERE'S NO SPECIFIC DAY TO GO...UNLESS YOU COUNT EVERYDAY
With many thrift stores in Tampa, there's a specific day of the week that you should go to shop the newly stocked items. At labelswap, we buy and sell new items every day, so it doesn't matter which day of the week you come, you will always find items that you have never seen before! The best way to avoid missing out is to visit us regularly!
3. PLAN AHEAD
One of the easiest ways to shop sustainably and save money is to plan ahead during your thrifting excursions. Get a paper and pen out and write down any events you need an outfit for in the next 6 months. Is your best friend expecting? Time to get a dressy casual outfit for her baby shower. Is mom renewing her vows? You might need a vow renewal dress. Do you have a high school reunion coming up? You're going to want something that makes you look your best.
Keep this list in your purse or your phone and remember it every time you go thrifting. This will save you a last-minute pricey trip to the mall when you waited too long and need an outfit ASAP.
We hope these tips will come in handy on your next thrifting trip to labelswap!
