Thrift store browsing is a thrilling, might I add, exhilarating activity. It’s treasure hunting; not a task for the faint of heart. The possibilities are endless and require what any grand task calls for: creativity, an open mind, patience, and efficiency, for thrifting can be a defeating task, too. Yet it can produce feelings which ignite one’s being, like finding your favorite brand name, with tags still intact, for only a few bucks.

This summer, recycled clothes are totally in style. With a community that supports sustainable, secondhand fashion, thankfully Truckee/Tahoe is a haven for thrifty mountain style. We’ve compiled our favorite finds from local thrift stores and consignment shops.
