Most people are familiar with the ASY Thrift Store as a way to save money or as a one stop shop to outfit the whole family. But did you know that by shopping at the Thrift Store you can bring out your inner fashionista as well? Thrift Store Customer, Rebecca Smith, has become an expert at pulling together amazing outfits at unbeatable prices.
A long time resident of Southern California, Smith has lived in Twentynine Palms since 1979 and is married to a retired service member. When shopping at the Thrift Store she keeps her eye open for vintage finds and says the best way to put together a great outfit is to “use your imagination!”
While Smith loves thrifting, she said she mostly sticks to the ASY Thrift Store rather than venturing out to the antique stores I Yucca Valley and elsewhere, “you guys just have the best stuff! I don’t waste my time anywhere else! I love shopping here and I always find something when I come. The base community is so diverse. There are so many people from so many different backgrounds aboard the base who bring their used items here – that means there is always something new and unique every time I come!”
