Who doesn't love a good thrift store bargain? Finding that great vintage or previously owned top or pair of shoes can make your endorphins go through the roof. Man does that feel good!  At ACDN, we love when you shop resale because we know that your purchases benefit our members!

Did you know that every dollar you spend at one our member agencies’ resale boutiques goes directly to creating programs that are provided free of charge to individuals entering the workforce?

Half of our members have resale boutiques and 64% host events open to the public throughout the year. So yes! Your purchases can help people starting out in their careers!

Individuals come to our member agencies for clothing and interview coaching and leave with so much more. They leave with the confidence to ace their interviews knowing that they can make the right first impression – and that feels really good.

So go out and shop for that great renewed piece that your closet’s been begging for and help someone get on the right track in their career.

Below is a list of several of our members with resale boutiques. Find one close to you, go shop, get those endorphins going and share your best find from one of the ACDN Member resale boutiques. Use #NationalThriftShopDay and #ACDNResaleSupportsCareers with the photo or description of your great shopping finds.

Happy shopping!
