I think I would be doing you guys a disservice if I gave you the impression that only women thrift because that is FALSE. It has however been hard for me to find men to feature on my blog. I have contacted the ones that I've found and I'm hoping I will get more male representation. :) Therefore, I am SUPER EXCITED to present to you guys Spencer, my FIRST thriftshionisto (there's such a ring to that). I found Spencer on Lookbook (one of the best days on my life.) His style BLEW me away. He is soooo fly and sooooo dope and better yet, he loves thrifting as much as I do. I am soooo glad that he took the time out to answer my interview questions. . Here's Spencer to show men and of course you lovely women what he comes up with!!!! Feel free to dribble over his style as much as I do.
Live. Laugh. Love Thrift.

Ive been doing it for so long I honestly can’t even remember what it was like my first time, now I thrift probably once every two weeks.
3. How can thrift stores appeal more to men?
Have their girlfriends drag them along lol. Possibly carry or display their items better.

Thrifting is so much more cheaper and you can find sooooo many more better items in a thrift store than any shopping mall really.

Being a male who specializes and enjoys thrift shopping and all its wonderful finds.
