This conversation was sponsored on behalf of Deseret Industries to share #DIFinds and Finding the Best Thrift Store Finds as part of the Deseret Industries 1-Year Anniversary Celebration. All thoughts and opinions are my own
I love thrift store shopping. Something about the hunt, the searching, the finding that one of a kind item at an amazing price.
Just this year I found and showed you the amazing desk transformation, and my hallway dresser piece. To find these good pieces, it takes a little more than just luck, here are my tips for the Thrift Store hunt
1. Find Your Store-
There are a lot of great thrift stores out there, but they are not all created equal. You can look on-line and scout the stores out yourself, or talk to friends- they may know some hidden gems.
One of my favorite Thrift stores, which is celebrating it's 1-year Anniversary in my area, is Deseret Industries.

2. Talk to the Employees-
First it just pays to be kind. Everyone is in too much of a rush. When you talk to the employees you can find out when new items come in, when the shelves are restocked, and when there might be special sales or discounts. Especially for thrift stores, knowing when new items come in is a huge benefit.
3. Go, Go and Go Again
When I found my desk, I went almost weekly for an entire month until I found a desk I loved.
