Let’s bust the myth that the main motive for visiting a second-hand store is the desire to save money! Today visits to second-hand shops are transformed into the hunt for exclusive, high-quality, branded looks! The proof of this fact is that the world-size stars do not disdain to buy clothes in second-hand stores.
Listed are some of the celebrities who admire second hand goods.
Julia is one of the most avid hunters for second-hand clothes, and paparazzi have repeatedly noticed her with the children in such stores. In 2001 she appeared on the red carpet in the dress bought in a vintage shop!She later admitted that she had been looking for a perfect outfit for the ceremony for quite a while, but the well-known designers could not offer her a decent option, and finally she stumbled upon THAT dress in a second-hand shop (the dress has been ultimately recognized as one of the best that evening!).

Will Smith's wife also does not mind cheap shopping. Her passion is unique coats and jackets that cannot be found anywhere else except for such markets.

Grammy-winning R&B singer Miguel takes his thrift shopping around the world.

Good Morning America anchor Lara Spencer’s involvement in the thrift shopping scene goes deeper than finding bargains. She has her own HGTV show called Flea Market Flip.

Hit R&B and psychedelic soul singer Janelle Monáe has millions to her name. Yet, her favorite store in her hometown of Altanta is a thrift outlet called Poor Little Rich Girl. She loves thrift shopping because she gets to find pieces that are no longer in production today. She gets to be unique.
