What do you look at first, the price or the brand?
I know lots of people that buy things that are ugly but are a popular brand - my mom LOVES any type of Coach purse, as long as it's Coach. I guess I just don't understand the appeal in brands.

i'm a thrifter, i love getting things for a cheaper price. i like brand name too, but like you said, a lot of brands make fucking ugly stuff. like coach (sometimes they have really great things), ed hardy, sometimes louis vuitton has ugly stuff too! i think no one should buy everything of one brand because they can make things that aren't very appealing, but people will buy them because it's brand name, haha.

I can't buy anything that's full price or over 30 dollars, unless they're shoes which I'll splurge on.

the price. I could care less what brand it is. Buying clothes for the brand is cheesy.

neither, just whether or not i like a piece. I dont even care about the brand, but if its a good one then that's a plus. and usually thrift finds are cheep, but i do look at the price after i try it on.

Definitely both.
I do buy stuff that I like even if it's not a brand name, but if it's a brand name it actualy doesn't make any difference in here.
People don't know designers, a plus for me :D

i think it's cool to mix thrift store finds w/ designer stuff-- i'm usually pretty thrifty though myself. :)

Hi, I'm looking for active members who mainly thrift or make their clothes or buy sustainable.
I would be glad to hype you to get more inspiration.

Thrifter. I actually cut the tags out of my clothes; partly because they itch like heck, but mainly because I don't want to feel like I'm wearing an advertisement.
