16 People Who Radiate Next to Their Thrifted Purchases

One main characteristic of today’s modern products is that many of them look alike, and thousands of people can have the same things as you. And since people like to feel unique, turning to vintage items helps them get a hold of something few people around them will have. Not only that, but thrifting is also a great way to step away from mass-produced items and look for one-of-a-kind pieces.
