Consignment/Thrift Store Shopping

I have several friends who shop at area thrift/consignment stores around town. They always manage to find the cutest skirts, tops, etc.

I was recently in the market for a short black jacket and headed to our town's two consignment stores. I had a great attitude & was hoping to have the kind of luck my friends have. I found a decent jacket at one of the stores, but that was it. I thought most of the clothes looked overly worn, plus several of the items smelled like onions or oil. Wow! I was not impressed. Plus, the prices on more than half of the items, were close to what I would have paid if I had purchased the items brand new.

Do you shop at consignment stores or thrift shops? What are your tips? Please share!
