So many of the things I have worn are from thrift stores/second hand.
It's one of the ways to get some really unique stuff you just might have to try several times.

And about smell/condition... well your able to check the item for any damage or odors... so thats not much of an issue. And you can always try to clean it at home just in case (which I think is a good idea).

I'd say yes, because of several factors (having the possibility to stop giving money to fast fashion and having a much more original choice).. but I only wish it could be like in the US, here in Germany things cost way too much for what they actually are :( I still buy thrifted sometimes though! haha

Hell yes, they always got good stuff if you take time and look around, you'll never know what you'll find, but never get it because its cheap low price, get it because you really like it, or else you'll be spending bucks lol, happy thrift shopping!

Of course! There's always unique treasures to be found. I found a really cool vintage Marlboro jacket from one that you couldn't have found anywhere else.

lol.. most stores will steam clean the items before putting them out for sale.. and also, you can just take the clothes home and wash them yourself. thrifting is so much better than shopping at name brand stores. you are bound to have a more original look, and you are helping the environment by decreasing pollution and child labor. i will never by my clothes from anywhere but a thrift store these days, as much as i can absolutely help it. <3

I think the answer is Yes, there you can find unique things)but sometimes you can buy nice things, not expensive, and sometimes even in online stores. here's an example here itgirlclothing.com
